My Thanksgiving Journey (Continued)

A couple of months ago I started on my thanksgiving journey — which is coming up with one thousand things I am thankful for. When I started this adventure, I decided to put my list on our blog so I have a place where I can have accountabillity to reach my goal. I had a problem keeping up with my list in the past couple of months because we moved. I packed my One Thousand Gifts Devotional by Ann Voskamp. (It actually has a place where you write a list in the back of the book) for the move and forgot which box I put it in. Then I had to wait to unpack the office boxes because when we got here the church decided to update the office. Dale finished painting and unpacking the books. He found it for me, so I sat down and tried to remember things I was thankful for in the past couple of months. The list not chronological.
