who am I counting for?

Last week, my Multitude Monday post got over 50 hits over the course of the week... and only ONE comment!  I was a little depressed... was it that boring?  but then I got to thinking. Why am I doing this list of 1000 gifts? Is it for the praise of man??? or to bring glory to the God who daily loads us with blessings?  So this week I am sharing my list and closing comments! Still loving Ann Voskamp's gratitude booklet!! :)
