I'm linking up at a A Holy Experience this year on Thursday's, starting my own 1000 gifts list. Making a list of the big and small, the important and then unimportant, the eventful and the uneventful. Finding reasons to be thankful in all of it. The good, the bad, the ugly and hopefully a lot of the beautiful.
For just a little while I'll be taking away the "top ten" part and making a list of 20 instead of 10, helping me end up around 1000 by the end of the year. For now...it shall just be Thankful Thursdays. You can do one, ten, twenty or however many you desire. Words or Photos. It's Thursday, just make it a day you remember...
...to be thankful.
What are you thankful for this week?
