One Thousand Gifts (part 12)

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:

211. golden raspberry bush's little white blossoms

212. Seeing Immaculee Ilibagiza speak--testimony of inspiring faith, message of profound forgiveness and love
