i'm reading a book by Ann Voskamp called "one thousand gifts".

it has been an interesting look at the power of gratitude. i'm not finished with it but i am far enough along to know that it has come into my life at just the right time with just the right message. and i am listening.

today's gifts included:
  • homemade brownies
  • April showers (both rain and snow)
  • the mind numbing awe that i feel while observing those vigorous pumpkin sprouts

do you feel it too?


  1. -time with my 17 year old son - listening to his music and his thoughts
    -a clean kitchen floor
    -an evening walk with husband and pups
    Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Hi
    I have to check out this book. I'm reading/working Simple Abundance for the 3rd time in 15 years.
    Gratitude is one of the staples in my live and I journal some of them every day.
    I love your photos -

  3. Yes! I read her book, too. I have a nice paper notebook where I am writing down the gifts. She is an interesting writer. I like how she puts her adverbs after her verbs.
    You are so lovely, Libby Q. I look forward to you sharing more of your thankfulness. You have such a true way about you.

  4. Important to recognize all gifts, yes? Thank you for the reminder.


i love knowing what your thoughts are and knowing that you've paid a visit if you have the time to drop a line or two.

i attempt to answer all comments and/or questions. if this is important to you make sure you are not set on no reply which leaves me no way to get back to you.
