trying to get back into blogging

So, although I said I was only going to take a two week bloggy break, it turned into more than 3 weeks, minus my #FiveMinuteFriday entry and that didn't get a single comment...  I was very good about writing down my gifts during the 2 weeks, so that I could share them with you on the Monday I returned, but I am a week late... so here's my 1000, infinite gifts...

I am not sure what happened after last Monday... I quit writing down my thankfulness. I am hoping to pick up again... I do have a lot to be thankful for from the last week, and I will try to work on that post next!

for now, I will continue linking up with A Holy Experience.


  1. I got tired reading your thankful list:-) You certainly are a busy mommy!! I think the most wonderful thing about keeping track of the day to day goodness of God, is that when things look their grimmest you know that He will work on your behalf, because you've seen Him at work in your day to day. That's been enormous for me this last year. See you tomorrow!

  2. I forgot to tell you...I've nominated you for a Liebster award. You'll have to check out my latest post to see what it's all about:-)


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