One Thousand Gifts (part 11)

Inspired by Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts, I am making a list of 1000 things I am thankful for. Everyday miracles, gifts from above. Here is my continuing journey:


174. chocolate milk


175. smell of roasted chicken


176-186. trip to Old Sturbridge Village: bleating sheep, dusty roads, sticky stripy candy sticks, tin hearts made by proud little boys, bayberry candles, hoop games, gardens full of busy bees, waterpumps, old coins, little girls in bonnets











187. boys playing soccer on windy field




188. bunny nibbling clover in backyard


189. catbirds at feeder


190. waking up before alarm; extra quiet time in morning


191. sky all streaked with pink and orange at sunrise, fiery orb climbing above treetops


192. world transforming into leafy greenness


193. azalea in bloom


194. whole family piling into big bed for a snuggle


195. daughter's delighted squeals over bubbles


196. big brother feeding his sister yogurt-precious sibling moment


197. bounce house birthday party-sweaty hyper happy boys!


198. proud blue-jay cocking head in curiosity


199. fragrant smell of spice cabinet-pungent and exotic


200. digging in the garden--smell of rich moist earth




201-209. day at the farm: honeybees, making beeswax candles, trotting calves with lanky limbs, baby chicks kept warm under lamp, wooly sheep, muddy pigs, hungry tortoise, good friends










210. windows all open-smell of fresh air throughout the house


more to come...
