Counting to 1,000 (44-64)

Note: I recently read the book One Thousand Gifts, and now I’m making my own list of one thousand gifts. As they accumulate, I’ll post them on Mondays and keep the running list on this tab, titled All is Grace.

44. books scattered near and far — because we are reading

45. warm clothes on a very cold morning

46. friends to share life’s run and jump and race moments

47. the aroma of pot roast in the slow-cooker

48. candles made ready when the electricity unexpectedly goes off

49. the joy of electricity’s quick return on a dark, sub-zero night

50. mother-daughter snuggles in the rocking chair

51. penguin books that teach us how patient love is

52. words of Scripture set to music

53. little girls who notice the details

54. Legos and K’Nex scattered across the carpet — because we are creating

55. clothes just out of the dryer

56. ponytails and hair bows

57. a trip to the ice cream shop in February

58. a tiny glimpse of grass beneath a melting snow bank

59. a marionette puppet, complete with a hat, made by 8-year-old hands

60. teddy bear love

61. red-hot cinnamon lollipops

62. peaceful sleep

63. mailboxes full of love

64. friends sharing a Valentine picnic
