Counting One Thousand Gifts

I'm continuing to count one thousand gifts with Ann Voskamp of Holy Experience.

#39 Sharing a hymnal with my friend Linda and her granddaughter Trinity as we sing "The Old Rugged Cross".

How I wish I had my camera with me at that moment!  Trinity sang clearly as she read each word.  Linda and I smiled as we sang along.

#40  My  husband Greg spent days fixing my computer and ...it's working!

I'm amazed at how much my blogging friends have come to mean to me.  I miss visiting all of your blogs.  I hope to be back again soon.

#41 Seeing our youngest three year old student finally learning to write his letters.  Way to go Evan!

#42  Beautiful roses in bloom

On my way to work, I pass a field with the most amazing rose bushes of all colors.  They posted a sign recently.  You can pick a dozen roses for yourself and it costs $8.

#43  A wonderful co-worker named Heidi

Heidi has been such a joy for me to work with.  She always has a smile and I love that we work so well together.

#44  A great carpool buddy

Tara and I come from different worlds in so many ways and yet ...we've become fast friends.  I love to discuss life and really listen to her views and thoughts.  We appreciate the differences and yet also find much in common.

I'm a bit late in posting but I didn't want to miss out on counting my blessings.  No matter how challenging life may be, there's always much for which I can be thankful.

Blessings and love,
