The best gift I have ever received
on October 30, 1999
This book was a gift from a very dear friend. When I got it I didn't truly "get it", or it's purpose, but then I read the author's words in the beginning, and started to enter in it daily, and I realized the true power of saying "thanks." Breathnach accentuates the journal with amazing, often simplistic quotes which both move and inspire you. To those who say that this is merely a blank-paged journal, I must agree. However, how many of us can say that we actually DO write down 5, 6, or even 1 thing a day to which we say thanks? Plain and simple, this is a beautiful, often inspirational way to offer a very simple, yet powerful note to the universe: thank you. Those who follow the course of this journal throughout one year will realize how simplistic, yet amazing giving thanks is. Recounting your journey throughout the past year and seeing how your perceptions and values have molded around gratitude is a truly invaluable way to learn, and grow in life. Get this book - but more importantly, give it to a dear friend or loved one.
