Counting the Gifts

I am s-l-o-w-l-y making my way through the pages of Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts. It is an intentional slowness. I am forcing myself to read and absorb each word. I want the wisdom of her words to make their way from my thoughts to my heart. And with each page I am blessed.

I recognize the gifts, I feel the thanks and my heart is full. My list continues...

31. long shadows
32. my heart being stretched to love more
33. good news concerning a friend's health
34. asking my teenage son to make me a cup of tea and him doing so without complaint
35. hidden sacrifices
36. robin's egg blue - the most beautiful color in the world!

37. the gift of family unity
38. favorite photos

39. finished projects
40. opening windows to fresh, Spring air

May your day be blessed!
