Ann Voskamp’s 1,000 Gifts is a mind-altering read. I am probably due for a second go at the book, actually. I kind of think that learning to be grateful is not something I’ll ever do with the reading of a single book. I need the learning pretty much every time I turn around to reach for the remote control.
Gratitude is equally (for me, at least) about obedience and worldview. The feeling part of it is negotiable, but usually comes after a pattern is established into a habit.
I signed up to have Voskamp’s blogs emailed to my inbox. I don’t subscribe to most of the blogs I “follow” but, this one—I need the extra nudge. Today’s blog included the MAY list for GIFT Counting. I have the app, am not enough in the habit to rely on that for a photo journal yet. That might surprise you.
Instead, I will write the list in the blog. Today I will do day one. I may or may not post the blogs every day. We’ll see.
I am, after all, “for” gratitude.
DAY 1: 3 GIFTS TASTED
- T.C.’s homemade York Peppermint Patty Ice Cream (also grateful for the invitation via text so I wouldn’t miss this one)
- Fresh carrots, yellow squash, zucchini and onions steamed to perfection
- Cajun bacon wrapped scallops (which I had on Sunday evening, but am still thinking about)
