1000 Gifts

Today is the second day of November, and everyone is faithfully giving their list of what they are thankful for each day on Facebook. I enjoy reading the different takes on everyone's "thankfuls," and thinking about all the things/people I am so thankful for. However, it got me thinking... Why not be thankful everyday of the year, and that's sort of what the list of 1000 gifts is about.. A list of "gifts" you are thankful for, big things, little things, everyday mundane things, once in a lifetime things...

I've been working on my list for quite sometime, not consistently, but when I think of something I write it down. Let me tell is SO much harder than I thought! It's a definite challenge, but so rewarding & fulfilling!
Here is what I made for a written list...

(I cannot figure out how to turn it in the right direction) :/

I made a LONGGGGGGGGGGGG table in Word, front & back, with enough spaces to write 1000 gifts...
Here is my list for you so far. Keep in mind, some of these are completely silly & some are serious, but that's what makes it my list. I also did not list out each & every person, as I think that would take up the whole list & that would defeat the purpose. :)
