52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge | April 26, 2015

1. Why start this challenge?

I have decided to start this challenge and to post this on here to hopefully inspire some other people to take on this one year challenge. I came across this challenge on a bible study website I use on a fairly regular basis and decided almost immediately that I would do it. I am so grateful for everything I have in my life but I will admit that I'm not always the best at expressing my gratitude and I don't always notice how blessed I really am. If I take the time out of my day to sit down and show my gratitude toward all 52 of these topics, I feel that I will be a more gracious person.

I don't want to overlook all the blessings I have in my life any more. I want to show  my gratitude in this way so if ever there is a day I am feeling really down and ungrateful I can look back at these posts and remember just how truly blessed I am and how many things I am grateful for.

Thanks for reading, xo, Katelyn
