counting blessings... even when you don't feel like it!

I almost didn't add to my #1000gifts list this week... it was just your average week of ups and downs... and when I sat down to type, my mind was drawing a blank.  you see, I know that God has been good to me, and that He has lavished me with gifts this week, but today I am moping... wishing that I was a writer and could write poetically.  I also knew that I wasn't going to get linked up to Ann Voskamp's Multitude Monday until it was almost Tuesday, which means not many people would click over to my page... but I KNOW that it isn't about people reading my blog, it is about me giving glory to God in all things... the mundane, the victories, the heartache, whatever!  So here I am trying to plunk out a few more gifts on my list!

  1. We are so similar, in that we worry about our writing. Your blog posts are great. They read very fluidly and aren't just fluff. They are full of substance and follow you in my feed. I'd hop over here and read at anytime of the day! I didn't teach either of my boys howto tie their shoes until they were in the double digits. I kid you not. Thanks to velcro shoes and slip-ons, we didn't have the need. They do know how, but still wear a lot of the laceless shoes. I love me some Shamrock shake action! Yumm-E! My kids have been watching the Cosby's on netflix too! They were so excited, because my husband and I had talked all about the show with them. Ah, yes, the tooth fairy days. I miss those! Keeping writing, I love reading!


I would love to reply to your comments, but I can't unless you have an email available in your profile!
