Okay, I started this blog the first week of December... now it is a month later, and somehow I didn't add a SINGLE entry to my #1000gifts list!! soo frustrating for me, but I will keep trying!!! so it is no longer December, but I will make an effort to recap the month in blessings!!
It's December... all things Christmas... lights, music, trees, presents, decorations, candles, carols, red, green, snowflakes (and even a few reindeer and Santa) This is a time of year when it is easy to see the ENDLESS gifts God has bestowed on me!! but for now, we are just working on listing 1000 gifts with Ann Voskamp at
