1000 Gifts - Late Edition

Even though this is a late post for linking to Ann's blog, I wanted to post anyway.  In a round about way you can see what's been going on in our family life and in a direct way you can see my thankfulness for what God has given me and my family.  There are things that I have forgotten and I hope to do a better job on a daily basis.  I will share with you later one way I have found to remember my daily thanks.  For today, this is what I can remember:

Recovery for all
One who never got sick
Christmas shopping with a great friend
Grandpa's release from hospital
Great meeting with spiritual director
Advent morning meditations
Walking baby
Pre-School and the crafts they make

Inquisitive little minds
Husband not plowing
Online shopping
Parenting by His Graces
Her "YES"
Dressing baby dolls in what was their baby clothes
Ring Around the Rosie

Little clowns while I am so seriously taking what I had hoped to be Christmas pictures

A tree in my living room {really.....there's a tree in my living room?}
Remembering other's grace in suffering

Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.  May it be done to me according to your word."
~Lk 1:38

holy experience
