One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, the New York Times Bestseller by Ann Voskamp, is one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. More lyrical poetry than prose, Ann's heart-wrenching journey challenges us all to find beauty, grace, and gratitude in even the smallest things. In the process of listing one thousand things to be grateful for, I've found my own field of vision has become narrower yet more intense, forcing me to slow down, adjust my focus, and pay attention to right now. 

{I've been keeping this list since January which is why this visual list begins with 250.}
