As soon as I received the book for review, I went to my nook on the front porch by the fountain and wind chimes where I have created a reading haven. I didn't leave that spot until I had read every page of Ann's book, twice. At one point, I even asked my 15 year old son if I could read a few pages to him. I wanted to tuck some of Ann's golden nuggets into his heart where he might keep them to pull out later for inspiration.

The first wonderful thing I noticed was that Ann included her own exquis
Refreshing. Challenging. And different :) I really liked it!!!
I don’t usually go for coffee table books. My coffee table is for practical things like my tea mug and the book I am currently reading. I don’t believe in dusting around decorations. But I was recently given a copy of Selections from One Thousand Gifts; Finding Joy in What Really Matters.

Inspiring, lovely photos, thought-provoking pages!
Sweet selections and reflections on finding the grace and joy in everyday life and remembering to give thanks for it. The photography is stunning, definitely to be counted as a gift for this author. Beautiful work!

I like the idea of looking for joy in your life, in practicing gratitude, but the language is too flowery and dramatic for me.
Pretty pictures.

A good gift book. Takes some of the best stuff out of the book and condenses it for those who aren't readers.
This book helps you to notice all of the blessings around you. I found it very comforting to read.
