Occasionally, Start with a Grateful Heart Blog accepts short pieces from Christian writers, bloggers, poets, and interested others who have a personal story to share about the impact that mindsets of gratitude, thankfulness, or appreciation have had on their personal and/or professional lives.
Your story matters.
My readers would love to know why you're so thankful or exactly how you count your blessings as a mom, a wife, a sister, daughter, or friend. You can keep it simple or go a bit deeper.

Just give us a peek into what makes you smile each day. :)
