Last week, I told you about my decision to document One Thousand Gifts--as a deliberate focus on being thankful.
I'm writing them and numbering them in my journal, and on Mondays, I will post a few gifts from the past week. I'd love you to join me by either posting a few of your gifts in my comments, or linking to your blog post in my comments.
Here are a few from this week:
#9 A little bloggie award.
Thank you to my bloggie friend Dawn at Beyond Grace for awarding me with the VERY prestigious Lemonade Stand Blog Award . That's right. Those comments you read from Dawn on my blog are not me talking to myself--she is a real woman with a great blog and a lot in common with me besides our name. Check her blog out here.
I don't know the bloggie award rules, but I do think I'm supposed to pass this award on to other bloggers who have "a great attitude and gratitude". I am going to pass this award to Beth at Like a Day Off. Beth is a fairly new blogger too...and I love reading her thoughts on life from her perspective. Plus, she's my real-life, in the flesh, friend and I love her. Go check out her blog!
#16 Ice cream. Can I hear an amen??
Blue Bunny's Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate--our favorite these days. YUM.
#25. A new book to read.
#32 Bubba asked if I'd like to snuggle. I mean...how much longer will my boy want to snuggle?
Love this pic of Bubba with an unintentional lip print from me on his forehead. And man, do I love those freckles.
#40 The comforting embrace of my husband. This man is who I run home to after a day that has made me weary.
What are you thankful for?
