  1. I love this Ann!! I got this gratitude book (http://www.amazon.com/Gratitude-Journal-Catherine-Price/dp/081186720X) for Christmas and can’t wait to re-read it at the end of the year. I’m also reading the book, One Thousand Gifts, which is pointed toward thankfulness and gratitude to live our fullest life.

    Happy Day!
