1000 Gifts (Continued)

I have hit a milestone…

I have been on a journey since January 2014 making a list of thinks I am thankful for in my life. It started when I read the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.  Occasionally, I write a blog about it is a way I can be accountable and keep on the journey. Last week I hit a milestone of two hundred things I was thankful for and I even went passed that milestone. To some it may not seem like something big to make a big deal but when you are on a journey milestone should be celebrated. Here are the news things to make the list.
