1000 Gifts {part 19}

I haven't posted my 1000 gifts list in awhile, although I have been continuing to capture these blessings in my personal journal. It has been such a blessing to live a life of gratitude with intention. As I make my way toward 1000, my heart continues to swell with thanksgiving at the many blessings all around me:

544. Feeding ducks, geese and seagulls spontaneously. So thankful for crackers in the car

545. whirlwind trip to Doctor's office, well-checks for 3 healthy growing kids

546. dance party in the kitchen with the littles to liven up pre-dinner hour

547. feel-good music that boosts spirits

548. new craft ideas

549. The kids practicing "good manners scenarios" together--so many giggles and such a joy to watch

550. engaging conversation with someone new

551. paper snowflakes in sunlight

552. fresh berries in January-delicious and sweet

553. the boys using their money to buy jelly beans--sharing a sweet treat together, so proud that they earned it

554. Bird Song book-- joy of listening to springtime chirps and dreaming of the day we'll hear them again

555. waking up to blanket of white

556. boys romping in the snow, all soggy and red-cheeked

557. boys' invented game of "Pirate Chess" complete with set of rules

more to come...
