I can't tell you how excited I was to see the FedEx man yesterday. I almost hugged him.
While I didn't hug the delivery guy, I did do a little happy dance while hugging the box. I have read rave reviews about "One Thousand Gifts" and have long been a fan of Ann, so hugging the box which contained her book was entirely appropriate. :)
I started reading it last night and it's wonderful. Wonderful, I tell you. Very moving, both spiritually and emotionally. I was crying in the first chapter. God has truly given her a gift with words.
I took a five minute break (okay...maybe fifteen) today during nap to read more and am looking forward to reading more tonight. I already know it will be one of my favorite books, with dog-eared pages and highlighter marks everywhere.
And guess what?
I bought an extra copy for a giveaway! That's right, one of you sweet readers will win a copy of "One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are" . All you have to do is leave a comment with something you are thankful for. That's it!
The giveaway will close Wednesday, February 2. I'll choose a random winner with the help from one of those number-picking websites and post the results Thursday!
