1000 Gifts and Thankful on a Thursday...on a Monday...

It has been a while since I posted on Thankful on a Thursday. I got "busy" and even in my good intentions of keeping a record of all the thankfulness - I faltered. Then I came across Ann Voskamp's blog at A Holy Experience and began reading her book and have decided to continue posting my thankful thoughts - aiming towards 1,000 and hopefully thousands upon thousands more! 

Many are the moments of true joy, beauty, communion, and sacred love that I allow to just pass me by as though I am entitled to another, 

and another...

and yet another. 

But another day we are never guaranteed. For the time I am here on this earth I want to catch the moments.

Taste them. 

Feel them. 

Smell them. 

Search for, savor, and hold them, each one. 

So here I really begin my dare of living fully - 

Right where I am!

Thankful for EVERY DAY!

1. The smell of a freshly bathed little one

2. The sound of laughter bouncing off the walls

3. Hugs

4. Snow. And more than a dusting!

5. Shadows dancing on the walls, cast by a warm fire

6. Hot Chocolate with marshmallows

7. Strong arms to hold me

8. That love is unconditional

9. An unexpected card

10. That His ways are not my ways and His thoughts are not my thoughts. Thank you Abba father!
