Counting My Blessings w/Ann Voskamp & Friends

holy experience

A few month's ago I joined Ann Voskamp's gratitude community over at A Holy Experience. I've been very mindful of the things in which I am grateful for far before joining. I have reached my 1,ooo gifts since joining, but will never stop writing nor speaking of the blessings which fall upon me. I am grateful to Mrs.Voskamp for she has been a true source of inspiration and I needed to thank her publicly from my heart. I'm honored to be apart of such a beautiful community! Every Monday I will continue with my gratitude list and hope it inspires others to be grateful for everything they have and even those things we do not have. -Tabitha

I Am Grateful For:

*The blessings of hubby's job
*The opportunity to fill our home with delicious and nutritious foods
*The gorgeous clouds in the sky on the way to Sams

*My nephew's sense of humor :o)
*A wonderful family Bible study
*A delicious cup of coffee with my princess before she headed off to Six Flags for a day of fun
*The inspiring note she left me on my desk
It Reads: Your beautiful inside and out -Jodie

*That she is loving the skin she is in
*The chance to see her beautiful photos she took this Sunday - Her camera has the wrong date set, but isn't she good at this for a kid?

*This wonderful award given to me by Teresa@Too Many Heartbeats. She's a sweet and wonderful friend!!

*For another opportunity to express gratitude :o)


  1. Oh my gosh, that's such a great list and YES, your daughter takes great pictures! Thank you for putting me in a state of gratitude this Monday morning. I'm thankful for your blog!

  2. Megan: Thank you for visiting me!!

  3. Tabitha,
    Isn't a gratitude practice just amazing! I began one years ago when I was not feeling particularly grateful about my life. My 24 year marriage was dissolving and the pain was great. I started with writing down 5 things each day to be grateful for. Just 5. That first day I could only come up with 3. The smell of fresh brewed coffee. The birds singing outside my window. The hugs of my children. That was it!

    But each day the list grew and within 2 weeks, I felt like a different person. Seeking out our gratitude opens us up to what is right in our world, instead of focusing on what is wrong or missing. We see abundance instead of lack. It's life-changing.

    I love that you always speak your gratitudes! Have a beautiful day!

  4. I love your perspective even after reaching your 1,000... the reasons to look with gratitude continue, don't they? Thanks for your encouragement and example to press on in giving thanks.

  5. I just finished listening to your podcast "I Choose Bliss # 2"..

    Great words!

    You have a beautiful heart!

    Thanks also for your words at the Internet Cafe. You blessed me today!

  6. Jan: Gratitude practice is simply the best! My first day was very similar to yours, but as time went on the list grew larger and still does. This practice has shown me so very much and indeed I am grateful for that. :o)

    Shanskie: Thank you for blessing me with your lovely presence. Yes, I believe expressing gratitude should be a daily ritual.

    Julie: I am beyond honored and grateful for your time and kind words! Thank You!

  7. Beautiful!

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us.

    May the Lord continue to bless you.

  8. Hello Tabitha,

    Thankfully, I experienced the powerful transformation that takes place inside once you live with a heart filled with gratitude.
    Thank you for sharing this, it is awesome. :-)

  9. I absolutely love reading your gratitude lists. Keep them coming! :)

  10. Mrs C: Thank you so very much!

    Keith: Thank you for coming over and experiencing it with me!

    Joy Discovered: I am deeply honored!

  11. I pray that my daughter will love the skin she is in as she grows up. Thank you for reminding me to tell her how beautiful she is.

  12. Gratitude practice feeds us, in ways that nothing else ever can. Your daughter is a gifted, for sure. She's got the eye of a photographer. And, a camera is a device that teaches us to see without it.

  13. Wonderful list...gorgeous photos!

  14. Tabitha, I am grateful that you share yourself with all of us. And, I'm happy to share a 'moment' with you here!

  15. I truly appreciate what you wrote here. Thank you for sharing from your heart!
    all the best as you seek The Best ~ Maria

  16. As always, I enjoy dropping by to get my bliss fill. Have a wonderful day in Motherhood!

  17. Your posts always bless me!

  18. What a sweet note to read :) Love your lists.

  19. That's nice. So many people do not stop and count their blessings any more.


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
