Gifts Continued....

62. long, black eyelashes on 3 beautiful children

63. a true love, my husband who loves me and takes
care of me and his family

64. seeing a little one discover
new things

65. a sweet and tender soul of a seven
yr. old, freckled face little girl

66. a giving and self-less heart of a
four yr. old--always willing to give
up something for someone else--a peacemaker
by nature

67. being able to really see the hearts &
personalities of little ones that
God has created--so unique and so
amazing

68. memories of a 90 yr old Granny snapping
beans on the porch of the family
farmhouse


69. new life springing forth with warmer
weather--tiny buds on our "Mr. Tree"

70. Godly women to share a journey with:
digging deeper, desiring more.

71. apparently dodging several tornadoes
today as my Mom and I drove right
through their path...having us safe
and having my family safe at home.

I always enjoy reading what you are thankful for. It has made me become more aware of all those "little" things for which to give thanks.
As I read your list of things you are thankful for and listened to the song, I thought how true. God was definitely taking care of us through the extreme weather today (as He does everyday). That is one of my favorite songs - "Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul" Mom

Good for you, Mom! You found how to comment!

Your words mean so very much to me. Yes, I, and you, have so very much to be thankful for. I love the song too. "It is well with my soul" as well.

Love you so much.

I'm so happy to have stumbled across your blog through mutual friends' blogs. I am very new to this and will be building my own in time. As a fellow soldier in Operation Motherhood, your words are very inspirational to me. You and T have some of the most stunningly beautiful children. I look forward to getting to know you better through this avenue...we are neighbors after all! Best wishes and glad you made it home safely through the storms today.
