So much to be grateful for – every breath, every kind word, every bit of scripture that assures me and comforts me.  Still my heart often takes it all for granted.  It takes effort, but I love the process of reminding myself to be thankful to God for all the special things He puts in my life – and they are all special.

Here’s the continuing list that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the many blessings!
