In November I challenged myself to be thankful for 1 thing every day. I loved the challenge. It changed my attitude about so many things that month. It gave me more joy. So I’m taking an even bigger challenge this year. I’m going to count 1000 gifts, or 1000 things that I’m thankful for this year.

A New Bible

I was inspired by Ann Voskamp to count my 1000 gifts. I haven’t read the book of the same title, yet… but I plan to. I do know that being thankful can change your attitude!

Gratitude is supposed to be an every day discipline anyway… not just at Thanksgiving.

So why not start the habit of recording gifts every day?
