  1. This is really cool. During the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving in 2011, my friend and I each kept a journal of EVERYTHING we were thankful for, and our intention was to see who could write down the most things that we were thankful for. Even though the competition part didn't work out super well, it was really great to recognize all of the wonderful things we have!


What makes your soul delight? This is my invitation to you to share your thoughts right here on my blog. I read every one of them, and I appreciate them!
