MY 1000 GIFTS THANKFUL JOURNAL

 
It's been a while since I shared some of my 1000 gift journal.  Sometimes life get so busy, I just think about them, but don't jot them down.  I had so many on our trip to Oregon.  Here are a few more things I'm so thankful for.
 

#871 Spending quality time with our daughter Jill.

 
#872 Cool weather.
#873 Gathering rocks and shells for grandson Jon
#874 My new Shape Up Tennis Shoes from my girls.
#874 Visiting with my brother after many years.
#875 My brother's successful surgery and recovery.
 
#876 A wonderful healthy lunch with my brother and sil in Yreka.
#877 Reading my new book "Satisfy my Thirsty Soul"
#878 A safe journey to Oregon and back.
 
What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi Wanda, I have the book "1,000 Gifts", but have not opened it to read it yet. I am waiting for the right moment.
    Your list is sweet and powerful.
    I had lunch with our oldest son Friday and exercised in the pool today, so these are two things I am thankful for. The pool is at a health club, not in our backyard LOL.

    I am especially thankful for my husband's recent successful removal of a tumor from his throat. I'm thankful for our home and for the gift of sight, too.

  7. It's just such a great habit to remind ourselves on a regular basis and write down the things we are thankful for. We have so much. Family, friends, freedom, homes, dry beds, water, furniture, kitchens, refrigerators, insurance, transportation, food, grocery stores, music, etc.

  8. Having a grateful heart I deem reflects the contentedness of one's current circumstance. You are so blessed to have experience all those!
