I trying to make a habit of doing these on Sundays this year. Though goodness knows my Sundays are full to the brim so it may get moved to Monday if I am consistently tired on Sunday evening. I started my counting last year and let it fall by the wayside when my world "imploded." Understandable perhaps but God deserves my thankfulness no matter what else is going on!
