One Thousand Gifts (112-119)

I have been reading A Holy Experience (Ann Voskamp's blog) for a year. Every Monday Ann adds to her list of One Thousand Gifts and today I'm adding to my list too.


#112 - #119 on my list of One Thousand Gifts. I'm thankful for:
112. an honest car mechanic
113. busy days at work
114. an electric garage door on rainy days...OK, every day :)
115. listening to a mom's excitement about her son attending his high school junior prom
116. listening to a co-worker tell us that her father's cancer has spread to his brain
117. listening to Terri tell me about her daughter-in-law's pregnancy and miscarriage

118. God for continuing to teach me to listen
119. my faith in God and praying for people during their celebrations and tragedies
Turn on your speakers. Read, enjoy, and thank God for His blessings.

What are you thankful for this week?


  1. At first I couldn't understand why you would be thankful for the cancer and miscarriage news, but as I continued to read it made sense. I love the honest mechanic!

  2. Ah yes Heather, my thankfulness was being fully present in these moments of life.


Thank you for stopping by and if you leave a comment...well that's just icing on the cake!
