One Thousand Gifts-Week 29

I’m still stringing them along, one day at a time, these gifts. Choosing to pause and treasure that which is good.

  • Three little bottoms lined up on a bench at dinner time.
  • Apron bows tied over sundresses.
  • The Girl looking more grown up and pretty than ever with her new bob.
  • Little asking me, “What dis mommy?” every time she hears a new sound.
  • Children watching birds, heads together, giggling with delight.
  • Early summer evenings on the green chatting with the neighbors.
  • The scent of sun dried laundry
  • Clear nights in the country where the breathtaking vastness of space becomes visible.
  • The unshaven smile of a spouse at home coming.
  • An after dinner wander with all of us together.
  • Watching the Girl run a half mile, barefoot, like she was made to do nothing else.
  • The Boy reaching the top of a climbing pole in less than 10 seconds.
  • The Boy and Little holding hands as he helps her run.
  • The silly, funny, twisting way that Little tries to make her body move faster.
  • Cinnamon sticks to chew on.

There is a lot of good in my life.
