And the list continues my friends.  It’s getting harder to put to words the things that make my days richer.  One of the many reasons I’m loving this practice.  There have been many times I’ve sat down feeling completely overwhelmed opened my phone and thought back through my day and added to this list.  After one or two entries the stress starts to lift and a new lens colors my eyes.  2018 is a great time to start your own list.  Allow the holy practice of thankfulness to transform your life from mundane to miraculous.
