1000 Awesome Things

My daughter told me about the website 1000 Awesome Things.

1000 Awesome Things is just a time-ticking countdown of 1000 awesome things. Launched June, 2008 and updated every weekday. It’s had 13 million hits! It’s been featured on all kinds of news media, including CNN. And now…it’s a hardcover book! Last time I checked, it was selling like gangbusters.

I thought this was a pretty good review of the website:

“1000 Awesome Things might be described as optimism for the rest of us. Sunny without being saccharine, it’s a countdown of life’s little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp.” – The Vancouver Sun

Definitely worth a peek! It’s amazing how something like that website can raise awareness of simple joys. We take so much for granted in this life of ours. I’m all for anything that helps us pay attention to God’s everyday gifts.
