I set the goal to write a list of 1,000 things I’m thankful for. I was inspired by this book. Here goes part 2 of my list, numbers 101-200.  Already I’ve had to look a little more closely to see the gifts in my day to day.  I’m loving the perspective this practice brings me, helping me see the miracles in the mundane details of my everyday life.

Happy Thanksgiving!
