Well this has been a year in the making I joined the joy dare over at A Holy Experience were you count your joys, gifts, things your thankful for three things a day at the end of the year you'll have 1000+ thing. I wanted to do something different to record all my gifts. So I made a smash,junk journal for them. It came out so good I plan on doing another one for 2013. I know what your thinking now what do you do with it since there were a couple of pages left I'm writing a letter to my grand daughter K when she turns 16 I'll give her the book so she can see all the little things in life to be thankful for. Next years will go to Ann. I think this is a wonderful idea for them to see how thankful I am for them for they are in many of the pages. This journey has taught me many things how to be thankful in the mist of tragedy and hard times. I'm looking forward to what the next years blessing will be. If you want to try it for your self pop over to A Holy Experience and down load all the months and start counting I'd love to hear how it goes for you.
