100 things I’m thankful for in 2018

Updated: Jan 10, 2019


All too often when we come to the end of the year we reminisce and dwell on the negatives, myself included. It's so easy to forget the blessings, the good times and the precious memories  especially when they are crowded by tragedy and disappointment. 


“I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭9:1-2‬

I don't know about you but I want to start this new year with a smile, so I've challenged myself to think of 100 things I'm thankful for in 2018 and I'd like to challenge you to do the same. Take some time out away from the stresses of life and think of all the great things that 2018 had to offer. It sounds like a huge task at first but once you get started there will be no stopping you. When you're done I challenge you to share it with a friend and challenge them to do the same. Life's too short, take time to count your blessings. Here goes...
