1000 gifts: #65 - 84

(Tomorrow is your final chance to enter my give-away. Hop on over here and take 5 minutes to post your entry and have a chance at winning one of the two prizes being given away on Wednesday!)

[65] the view out my back door

[66] and my front door

[67] the innocence of my children - some may think I'm over-protective; I just like keeping them from growing up faster than what is necessary

[68] drawing strength from solid relationships when other ones are floundering

[69] the engagement of two of our best friends

[70] healed friendships, that once I thought were irreparable

[71] brunch out with friends

[72] a new (to me) shirt that makes me feel pretty

[73] a new hair cut
[74] successful trip to the dentist - no cavities AND no tears (more on that in a future post)

[75]successful trip to the eye doctor - good eyesight and perfect eye health for both girls

[76] the last days of summer...and the promise of fall

[77] a fresh, empty school calendar just waiting to get filled up

[78] and oodles and oodles of stickers to help me do it

[79] four very attentive grandparents for my girls

[80] encouraging text messages from a friend on a particularly rough day

[81] the solitude my little office at work provides me with

[82] letting go (although I admit I still struggle with this!)

[83] watching my girls play 'library'

[84] family bike rides

I have that same calendar! But I couldn't help but put all the school stickers on it already....
