Gratitude List ~ The Thousand Gifts
I want to begin this journey of chronicling my everyday gifts. I need this. The awareness to the moment. The heavenward focus. The storing up to savor later.
And I begin.....
#1 ~ Being married to my best friend. We've been friends for, let's see.....since I can remember, and intimate friends for 20 years, and totally, loyally in love for 15 years.
#2 ~ My baby's voice singing "Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy to Jesus, but to trust and obey." (And yes, he sings it, "to be happy to Jesus".)
#3 ~ Dark Chocolate Truffles found on clearance for 50 cents.
#4 ~ The first ripe yellow Pear Tomato from our garden.
#5 ~ A mom who's only a phone call away.....ready to just chat.
