One Thousand Gifts (of mine)...

I used Grammarly to check this blog post, because I would rather be spending time with my family and garden, than checking the grammar of this blog post!**

Back in September, I read  book called One Thousand Gifts. I have been thinking often lately about trying to do this exercise. I think it will be easy in the beginning...I think it will be difficult to come up with 1000 that do not repeat. So, I am going to try. Obviously, this will not be done all in one sitting...(Aren't you glad?)
