simply thankful today

life has been pretty busy around here (though i somehow thought summer would mean life slowing down, not speeding up!) and i haven't been able to write here as much as i have wanted.  i have sat down several times to write only for it not to happen.

what i do have time to do, and need to do, is record the things i am thankful for.  i have so so much to be thankful for and i don't want to ever forget that.  even though i made a commitment to record the gifts of God to at least 1000, in reality i want this to simply be the overflow of my heart.  i want a thankful heart that acknowledges God's constant activity in my life.  i hate that i slip into ungratefulness and complaining

way. too. often.

so join me in counting gifts.  i will share mine with you.  please share yours with me.  if you record them on your blog feel free to leave a link in the comments below.  if you don't blog, then please leave something you are thankful for right now in the comment section.  you have no idea how uplifting it is to me to hear what you are thankful for and how it opens my eyes to even more i have to be thankful for in my own life as well.  thankfulness is contagious. 

still counting gifts to 1000...
