{thankful through pictures friday}

I am currently reading a book called "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp. Highly recommend! HIGHLY. This will be a life changing book for me. As soon as I started reading this book I knew, I too, wanted to start recording 1000 things I was thankful for.....my 1000 gifts. And in doing this I pray that I will be overwhelmed with ALL that I DO have & less overwhelmed at what I do not have......along with slowing my life down just a bit, even if here & there! I enjoy taking pictures, NOT a professional, do not try to be or profess to be! But none the less you will usually find me with my camera attatched to my body! I decided that I would record my 1000 gifts via picture taking with a small caption to accompany it! I am going to make this my Friday ritual, no set number of pictures.....may only be one......doubtful, God has blessed me with FAR TOO MUCH! I would LOVE for you to join me, even if you're not reading the book!


1. The joy my girls & husband find in playing their instruments together along with the JOY their mother/wife finds in listening to & watching them.
I'm excited to know that I have 1 other partner in crime {heather!!} joining me on this journey.......I would love to know if you've decided to do this also so leave a comment along with the link to your {thankful through pictures friday......or words}!
