Today the number 500 shows up as I’m counting blessings.

Honestly, I thought it would take FOREVER to reach One Thousand Gifts as Ann has encouraged us. But once you start LOOKING for blessings, they are EVERYWHERE to be found!

I would say I’m halfway to the goal, but my goal isn’t just 1,000 gifts anymore.

My goal is for this lifestyle of gratitude to continue for all my days.

Let the counting continue…

491. Sharing meals with the dearest friends.

492. Father’s Day dart fight between the guys!

493. Birthday countdown by Little J. {Also, the countdown to Cars 2 release – same day!}

494. A successful freezer cooking day!

495. Big J sharing lessons he learned at children’s church all day Sunday!

496. An AMAZING father for our boys – he’s the best!

497. Grilled Pizza Pockets – Father’s Day evening meal!

498. New milestones in my Couch to 5K training.

499. Jesus said to him, โ€œI am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” ~John 14:6

500. This new Count Your Blessings – Magnetic Memo Board with Magnets from DaySpring!

Count Your Blessings - Magnetic Memo Board with Magnets

When DaySpring offered the opportunity to review one of their products, I was immediately drawn to this memo board because of the attitude of gratitude it fosters, just like these Monday link-ups with lovely Ann.

We have one memo board up in our room AND one up in the boys room, and we’re encouraging everyone to put up pictures or letters or cards or verses with the cute {and super-strong} magnets that come with the set.

The one in our room looks like this so far… {sorry for the fuzziness!}

We have the card for our Compassion child, Samson, as well as a picture of the boys when they were smaller and one of the hubby and I goofing off pre-kids. I just know the kids will steal the picture of Samson for their board at some point ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the style and functionality of this board, and like I said – even the magnets are cute!

The Count Your Blessings magnetic memo board comes with three magnets and retails for $34.00, but is on sale for $24.00 over at one of my favorite places, DaySpring!
