I found a beautiful page and blog that has inspired me. And even though I am a procrastinator and didn't find it until a while ago AND still have not done much with it besides look it over, today's joy dare was just too perfect to ignore. SO... I am going to take some time and be thankful for all God has given me.

Her name is Ann Voskamp and she has done a tremendous job of setting up a way for you to easily count 1000 blessings in a year. Even as much as a procrastinator as I am there is no way for me to "skip" it...
1. Closeness - We have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house and 6 kids. There really isn't any hiding away from mom and dad, so we have been able to really watch our kids grow.
2. A sense of belonging, no matter where else I go - this is always HOME.
3. Shelter from the storms, both literally and figuratively.
