One Thousand Gifts (part 9)

Inspired by Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts, I've been making my own list of everyday gifts. God gifts. Starting at one and continuing to 1,000 here is my journey of gratitude. With Spring in our midst the earth is abundant with His beauty! I see it everywhere and wish I could capture it all!

102. squiggly wriggly writhing earthworms

110. son saying prayer for ambulance rushing past
