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!

95. Cupboards and fridge full of good food after trip to grocery store

96. 70 degrees and sunny!

97. pansies to plant

98-101. slippery slugs, Winter fireflies, field guides and blowing bubbles

102. squiggly wriggly writhing earthworms

103. flip-flops with newly painted toes

104. evening walk with family

105. daughter's goodnight "Nigh-nigh!"

106. new coffee mug and joy of winning it thanks to Heather at Mattern Family's Storybook Adventures!

107. little spider hiding in school book turned pet for a day

108. page-turner books that inspire

109. coffee, encouragement and laughter with friends

110. son saying prayer for ambulance rushing past

111-118. day at the park: statues, formal gardens, peacocks, poly wogs, chickens and bird's nest and blue skies

119. laughing so hard that fat happy tears come rolling down

120. encouraging heartfelt words from dear friend

121. new friends

122. MOPS meeting: teacups, tea cakes and words of encouragement

123. iced coffee on sunny day

...more to come
