Counting 1000 Gifts – Part 3

1000gifts

This is the time of year when many of us take time to count our blessings… or at least try to name a few of them. I took on the Joy Dare challenge a few weeks ago, and while I have no problem noticing the small (and large) things I’m grateful for, the challenge comes in naming something for each of the daily prompts. Some of these categories are really hard! I’m not sure how well my answer fits in every case, but as long as it’s a gift in my life I guess that’s really all that matters, huh? Also, there are repeats of some of the 1000 gifts because some of the categories overlap and even repeat themselves. Picking up with Gift #70…
