which chronicled 1000 gifts in her life. She consciously sought the gifts she was blessed with and wrote it all down in a prose like book of praise and thanksgiving. The book was a national best-seller---an eye opener to many of the need to remember the gifts and blessings our lives are filled with.
So my suggestion is---write them down. It is not necessary to come up with a poetic sonnet describing each and every one--just make the simple list. Start today---and keep the list handy--write everyday--perhaps several times in a day---but begin to keep a written account of all you have to be thankful for.
We take far too much for granted and seldom slow down enough, much less pause for reflection on all the gifts in our life. Begin the overt act of remembering your gifts and as you list them---read back over them--see if your attitude of thankfulness doesn't grow--blossom--and bear the fruit of a thankful heart.
I begin my list today with you, Readers. I am thankful for you stopping in your busy day and reading my blog, I am thankful for your comments, I am thankful for your encouragement, I am thankful for old friendships renewed, current friendships affirmed, and new friendships gained by your willingness to read my thoughts. You bless me and I pray that
God Blesses Each Of You!
I am thankful for our time of speaking of thanksgiving and thankfulness and pray each of you will enjoy a holiday of friends, family & feast.
I thank my God, every time I remember you.
