Endless Gifts

Daily I'm surrounded by wonderful gifts from God, yet many times I choose to see the disappointments instead of the blessings.

Today I choose to be a cheerful recipient, a joy finder, a gift counter.

#134. Smiles. Especially first smiles.

#135. Tim's job at Dollywood.

#136. All the attractions we're able to visit for free because Tim works at Dollywood. They really make great free family nights and date nights!

#137. Stain free diapers, thanks to the sun's bleaching power.

#138. Remembering that when I am penetrated by the Son I'm also made white as snow.

#139. A new pizza recipe that mimics our favorite Papa Murphy's take and bake.

#140. An adorable new diaper cover for Jonathan from Cheeky Diapers. Yes, that is sushi!

#141. The blessing of new life here and here. (Don't worry Maw, I'm not pregnant again...yet.)

#142. A newly found blog that inspires me every time I read.

#143. Sprouting sunflower seeds.

#144. Birthday candles for our first born. (Poor girl went to the doctor for her first ear infection on her birthday.)

#145. Grilled dinners. Tim cooks and the kitchen stays cool and clean :)

#146. The chance to try Charlie's Soap Laundry Powder and All Purpose Cleaner. (keep an eye out for a review & giveaway soon)

#147. Labels that make me laugh, "Cleans everyting from false teeth to diesel engines!" (cracks me up)

#148. Discovering the idea of homeschool workboxes. (Duh, why didn't I think of that?)

#149. Tim is done with school for the summer!

#150. Remembering that God carries us when we fall short as parents and when we simply have no idea what we are doing.

#151. Having a husband to lean on when I feel like a failure as a mama.

#152. Being reminded that "this too shall pass."

#153. Jonathan continuing to tell us when he needs to go potty several times each day.

#154. Small hands reaching for mine.

#155. A little voice whispering a prayer for Daddy.

#156. A baby that likes to sleep in.

#157. A camera to capture all of these fleeting moments.

#158. The easy accessibility and low cost of toothbrushes when Jonathan drops another one into the toilet. (The fourth this month, you think I would have learned by now!)

Please leave a comment telling us what you are thankful for today.

holy experience

Delightful to meet you and share in your thankfulness today. Simply beautiful, simply today. Wrapped in sushi diapers nonetheless.

Hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you.

New to the gratitude community,
