Living Fully ~

My friend Jane recommended this book to me, and am I so glad she did!

The author Ann Voskamp is a farmers wife and young Mother of six children.  She found that in giving thanks for the life she had, she found the life she'd always wanted.

I hope that you will check out her blog too.  As with her is so poetically written, only with beautiful photos.

I have started my own list of the things that I've been in too big of a hurry to notice, to be thankful for, to call it joy in my life.

a list of
My, one thousand gifts.....

By doing so, it slows down the day that is passing me by too quickly.

My list grows daily.
You, whose blogs I spend time reading and learning from, are on my list of thanksgiving.....
You are among.. my one thousand gifts.

I hope you will read the book and let me know what you think....I really hope you will tell a friend about it too.

This is what echos from my heart today.......


  1. You know, Debi, no matter how I'm feeling; when I visit you I'm always lifted up! And, I thank you for that.

    Will definitely visit the website; that book looks and sounds like something I would like to read and should. ((hugs))

  2. I have heard of this book but now will definitely have to check it out! A beautiful post!

  3. I purchased a copy of this book for my sister on her birthday. I could barely part with it after I started reading it. I look forward to buying my own copy and reading it from cover to cover. I want my life to be filled with gratitude and I so appreciate reading your post. Your life continues to inspire me.
