Ann Voskamp and her book One Thousand Gifts have totally changed the way I look at my days. Those little things that have once been overlooked are now what bring joy, grace, laughter, and a change in attitude!

I have been "gifting" now for about 6 months... and I tell you, what a breath of fresh air it has been! My oh my... I've realized how much I missed before! How many times Father has been trying to make me smile and I haven't even noticed.

A tiny glimpse at my gifts from this week...

- The simplicity and deliciousness of puppy chow

- Hot water, bubbles, and a magazine to keep me company

- Those silly blue eyes that tease without saying a word

- A budding young artist

- And the delight over a new pack of markers


  1. Just so you know, I read your blog much more than I comment. Enjoying glimpses into your life.

    I bought that book for my mother-in-law for Christmas. It is also on my list to read.

  2. Love your gifts- and that you are sharing them! Rochelle- move it to the top of your list!
