Day One: Living Fully

My friends and I are engaged in a book study that promises much growth for all of us. The book is One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Areby Ann Voskamp.  It is about being thankful, even for the bad things in life.
Some of those things have been really bad for many of us.  Failed marriages, losses of children, battles with sicknesses so vicious that it seems it would be easier to just give up and die. But, we don’t. We keep going, and somehow we’re going to learn how to be thankful for ALL things, even the bad. It will be a journey to remember.

My list of one thousand gifts begins here.
1. I am thankful for the cardinals that sing and “chink” outside of my bedroom window every morning.
