Today I start a new habit. I have been very aware of my blessings of late. I often wonder why I have been so blessed. Certainly not because I deserve it, for nothing could be further from the truth. I am beginning a voyage of gratitude today. After reading this post on Ann Voskamp's blog, Holy Experience I will attempt to share my gratitude for 1000 graces, undeserved gifts from my Heavenly Father. How many blessings have I forgotten, ignored or neglected? I am ashamed to tell you I have no idea, daily I take them for granted. There are so many blessings even on those disappointing and even heartbreaking days. Today I start counting some of those blessings both the small and enormous ones. Here are just a few:

1. grace itself is a huge blessing

2. the unfailing love of God, I'll never understand why He gave His Son for me

3. my family, I will count them individually along the way, but today I will group them together because I am thankful that I belong to the family that I do

4. the change of seasons I'm always ready when a new season arrives

5. times of feeling useful, I recognize this gift most when it is missing, those periods of real usefulness are a true gift

6. homegrown produce

7. stories, both true and imaginary

8. prayers of others

9. clean water

10. comfortable shoes
