One Thousand Gifts-Week 47

holy experience


The way the Girl sings her bed time prayers now in imitation of Gregorian chants.

Bouncing blond curls.

Little's china doll lashes.

Funny shows to laugh at while I sit and quilt.

Baby kicks in my ribs.

Long, late night talks with our big girl.

Laughing together.

Lemonade, especially when we all make some together.

When Aaron smiles.

Long toddler legs sticking out under shorts.

The smell of a wood fire.

When family is together.

Being able to laugh at things that are irritating but can't be controlled. Like toddlers who stay awake all night.

Polka dots.

Phone calls with distant friends.

Hair cuts at home with people gathered around talking and laughing.

Aaron teaching the Boy for the first time how to shoot a BB gun at a target.

The way he read the whole manual in the car to make sure he learned everything.

The way he handed it to me saying, "This part is a message for parents mom, so you should probably read that so you know what it says."

My FIL laying his hands on the belly that finally begins to look pregnant and blessing this baby.



The gratitude community is here.

  1. your list made me smile. There are so many gifts that I just overlook. My hubby and I have a passion for fresh lemonade and have been experimenting with different recipes. Oh the things I have to be grateful for...

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm so glad to read this list and get an uplifting morning message. I stumbled on your blog in an odd way- hope it's not creepy- but really look forward to hearing more.
