1000 gifts

As I was driving home this afternoon I looked up in the sky (for an ever so brief moment) and started thinking of all the things I have been blessed with. Which got me to thinking about my 1000 gifts list. That I stopped at 63 way back in September. I started reading the book again, "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp, it's a shame I stopped. I have found that I am a loverly person when I am thankful and joyful than when I am negative and in a rut. So I am counting all of the gifts my God had blessed me with, a few at a time.

64. I passed KTIP! No longer will I have to do any of that evil stuff any more :)

65. puffy white clouds in shapes of dragons, bunnies, and owls in the bright blue sky.

66. my hydrangea bush is blooming! beautiful soft pink and purple blooms.

67. there are only eight more days of school!

68. I have nearly survived my first year of teaching, thank you Jesus.

69. yoga pants and eating tasty peanut butter ice cream. contradiction? eh, it's the best of both worlds, so no :)

70. puppy kisses greeting me when I walk in the door.

71. zumba with friends.

72. peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

73. changes.

74. a marshmallow of a bed and a good nights sleep.

75. orange-blue-purple-pink-yellowish watercolor splashed sunrises.

Happy Monday, y'all.

i just started reading that book but school's been crazy so I haven't read much. I'm a teacher and have three weeks left and then plan on reading it right away. I love this idea and love your thankful list!
