one thousand gifts

I am reading One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp and it is having quite an effect on me.  I am reading it slowly and letting the wisdom sink in.  It speaks to me.  I can relate to the anger, the impatience and the need to control.  I can also relate to the thankfulness because I feel it in my heart.

It’s hard to feel thankfulness in everything – good and bad.  While easy to be thankful lying on a beach sipping a tropical drink, it’s hard to feel thankful on a crowded stinking train.  Or worse, in a hospital bed.

May we all find the grace we need.  Thankfulness is the path to God.
