I was inspired by a good friend today. I love when you sit down with a good friend and they challenge/inspire you to look at yourself and examine it. *Thanks friend* She told me of a book that she heard of  “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are” by Ann Voskamp, (she blogs here).

We talked about it, how we take things that we should be thankful for, for granted. So many things that I have, other people don’t. This list is not to say “Look what I have!!”, it is to show what I am thankful for.

Without further ado, my list of things I am thankful for. (excluding #1-3, they are in no particular order)
