One Thousand Gifts (764-768)

Continuing on my journey toward one thousand gifts....

More celebrations this past week...

Wonderful Husband's birthday and after 29 years of marriage we shopped for his gift together. We traveled to a nearby sporting goods store and although I took of picture of this:

He actually received a couple pair of golf shorts and a waterproof golf jacket. So rain or shine he is ready to hit the links!

I went to a bridal shower for Melanie, our niece-in-law-to-be. A nice get together with all my in laws (sisters, mother, nieces) and  my daughter was there too.

Conversations catching up with one another and we'll be together with our spouses to celebrate the wedding in August!

764 - 768 on my list of One Thousand Gifts. I'm thankful for:

764. Wonderful Husband's birthday

765. my sister getting married in TX

766. Melanie's bridal shower

767. being with multi-generational women

768. hard eucharisteo...if the church means the people...why are we always talking/hearing about the building? Thankful for the people I am in fellowship/community with but am struggling with the constant talk of the building.

Do you struggle with your church during building campaign seasons?


  1. especially love #767!! I am so thankful for the women who go before me, and I so enjoy those who come behind. (and all those in-between as well).

    1. Yes, the generations mixing and mingling; each precious and bringing their personal and unique perspectives to our gatherings.

  2. Lovely honest list, Cindy! Birthdays, showers, weddings in the family... I love how these things keep the fabric of life colorful and interesting. And thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment:)

    1. Yes, the family keeps growing and the reasons for celebrations continue.

  3. Congrats to you and all your celebrations!
    The picture of the golf clubs made me laugh...the hubby was cleaning his this morning!
    Let the rumpus begin!

    1. Ahhhh, yes. Golf clubs make me happy because they bring joy to Wonderful Husband. The old saying is true, "A bad day on the golf course beats a good day at work every time!" Ha!


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