More to be thankful for.

It's Monday....well, it's almost Tuesday, so hopefully I can post this before the clock strikes twelve!

It is amazing. as I watch for things that make a difference...things that strike a chord in my heart...things that I wouldn't want to live without, sometimes a fleeting moment, sometimes a building memory, I find many things to add to my list.

11. the sparkle in the eye of the stranger in the grocery store parking lot as she bows low and hands me a cart with a "madam, your chariot awaits!"
12. the thoughtful kindness of a neighbour, snowblowing our long drive that is buried in a sea of white
13. the morning light shimmering off diamonds strewn over the snow.
14. a husband that loves snow and enjoys shovelling - saving me from having to shovel
15. children joining in the shovelling fun
16. red cheeks, cold hands and cries of "Mom, can we have hot chocolate?"
17. finding the perfect journal book for my gratitude journal with the quote "Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul." Henry Ward Beecher
18. weekend lessons on the importance of shepherding
19. women who watched my children so I could glean from the lessons on shepherding
20. encouraging words spoken with love.
