One Thousand Gifts

Some days it's imperative to count these precious gifts lest I get caught up in the mundane and routine of household drudgery and the breaking up sibling fights.  

So I stop.  And I remind myself.

0526.  butterfly kisses from those long little boy lashes

0527.  giving my sweet girl her *nightly* back scratch to help her get sleepy

0528.  spooning

0529.  a surprise gift from a new friend

0530.  listening to my children as they quote Scripture they've learned

0531.  soft candlelight when the power goes out

0532.  reading bedtime stories by flashlight

0533.  an encouraging word from a far-away friend

0534.  the success of a new recipe

0535.  an answered prayer
