One Thousand Gifts {part 20}

As January comes to a close, I pause to reflect on the many blessings this Wintery month has brought. From the beauty of nature to the wonderful people in my life, grace is all around. So I continue to count the ways the Lord fills my life with good things, blessings from above:

564. "I Love You Because..." board. So many smiles and laughs we've had!

565. "MOPS Swap" de-cluttering the house while blessing others!

566. Luke remarking on the beauty of snow twinkling in sunlight, "like a bunch of diamonds shining!"

567. Letter from one of our sponsor children

568. Still a little light out past 5:00pm!

569. waking up to a Winter Wonderland

570. mugs of hot cider after playing in the snow

571. family game day

572. coyote passing through the woods in our backyard. Breath-taking.

573. "snow faces"

574. my 2-year old saying grace

575. Cinnamon rolls in the oven

576. meeting a wonderful new friend!

577. Chinese New Year celebrations

578. cold egg rolls

579. playdate: legos, crazy costumes and catching up with wonderful friends

580. answers to prayers far better than I ever imagined

581. handsome little heads of boys with fresh haircuts

582. Megan using the potty for the first time!
