The author writes in a very different way, almost like poetry. The book is about how the author started making a list of 1,000 things that she was grateful for and found joy through this. She was able to find joy in the simplest things throughout her day and even joy in the hardships. It is a book about learning that joy and greatefulness take action and those actions can change a heart. Choosing to be grateful takes giving up control and trusting that we have a God who will take care of us no matter the situation. Being thankful is the building blocks to the bridges of trust as we look back and see all that God has done for us and blessed us with. Writing our blessings down, the little things that we are grateful for every day helps us become more aware of them and how blessed we truly are.
