"Joy is always a function of gratitude -- and gratitude is always a function of perspective. If we are going to change our lives, what we're going to have to change is the way we see." - Ann Voskamp
Like most everyone else, I am jumping onto the One Thousand Gifts bandwagon. I love this book. I love the writing. I love the simplicity. I love the thought process. If you haven't read it yet, you really should, it will change your life.
I also follow Ann's blog A Holy Experience. I am inspired by her words and photos each and every day, they touch me deeply. I can relate to Ann's life somewhat. She is Canadian. She has six children. She has a husband who works hard and loves her and her family. She is Mennonite.
Ann encourages us to journal our gratitude. To write them down and even photograph them. I am doing a bit of both.
So here is some of what I am grateful for this January.
“Practice is the hardest part of learning, and training is the essence of transformation.” -- Ann Voskamp
