1000 gifts

My Friend Jessica at her blog Has for the past 6 months been doing something called the 1000 gift challenge. She is WAY beyond 1000 now, almost at 2000. But I decided to start some place. I have anote book to be able to write things down. It may take a while to get in the hang of it. But I will go for it. Basically it is being grateful for every gift you have, no matter how small or abstract.
