Gratitude on Monday

On Mondays, I catch you up on the beautiful gifts — both large and small, hard and comfortable — that God has been giving me.  Start your own One Thousand Gifts adventure by clicking on the banner below.

... all three dogs curled up on the bed with me as I write my gifts
... enjoying making my first ever speaking video
... pregnant moon

... pregnant belly (24 weeks + 5 days today!)

24 weeks 3 days

... a visit from far-away family
... a friend's baby born 10 weeks early but healthy (pray for them? he's in the NICU for 4-6 weeks)
... Cody running and woofing in his sleep


... the Best Husband Ever tickling our niece's feet
... healing painting
... staying long after church to talk with a much-missed friend
... watered flowers
... a message to not be afraid seeming to be whispered from many lips
... beginning to catch glimpses, finally, of how I am changing, even though it feels precarious and I can't see how it will end
