A Simple Gratitude Journal

If you're looking to buy a gratitude journal of your own you can go to that page. You can also find gratitude quotes and gratitude prayers on this site. Plus a new page on gratitude rocks.

I've been keeping a journal on and off for about two years now.

I thought, since I have a website dedicated to saying thank you, that maybe it would be cool to share my journal and open it up for other people to share theirs, too.

Basically, I list ten things I am grateful for in no particular order. It gives me a time to focus on my blessings. I try not to repeat and try to include things big or small. Nothing is too silly or too corny.
