1000 gifts: #337 - 361

[337] the smell of fresh spring rain
[338] sitting on my front porch, relaxing in the warm sunshine and slight breeze
[339] finding the random pictures on my camera courtesy of my daughters, like this one:

[340] quality time spent with my sister at our co-garage sale (even though my part of the sale was a bust, the time together was long over-due)
[341] a cold Pepsi Slurpee on a warm spring afternoon
[342] my oldest daughter's progress in bravery from one swimming lesson to the next
[343] a daily reminder of a treasured friend who now lives 2 provinces away (and sells amazing hand-made items - check out ButtonUp Designs!)

[344] an apology that came after 3 1/2 years and how it helps bring just a little bit of closure
[345] surprising my husband with a meal I've only made twice in our 10 years of marriage (lasagna)
[346] answered prayers
[347] having God on my side
[348] flowers from a friend that brightened my table

[349] a faithful husband; one who tells me I'm beautiful every single day
[350] learning a new chord on the guitar
[351] my beautiful home
[352] best friends who live right next door
[353] finding my self-worth in things other than the number on the scale
[354] a new family activity

[355] delicious meals at my parents' place so I get a night off from cooking
[356] car pooling
[357] grace extended to me daily
[358] Doritos in my sandwich
[359] raw cookie dough (don't judge!)
[360] spontaneous Dairy Queen outings (love you Kathy!)
[361] YOU - yes, you. If you're taking the time to read my blog, you are a blessing to me.
