Thankful : 1000 Gifts
We keep the family gratitude journal near the table and pull it out at meals mostly. Daily we pause and pray that our eyes would really be open. And we try to count the innumerable gifts.
It's been too long since I have counted the gifts here. Sharing a few from our family journal today.
