multitude monday::

Here's my continuing Multitude Monday posting, which all started here. So, without further introduction, the next installment of my "One Thousand Gifts":

62. a warm house
63. warm socks
64. my coat {can you tell it's REALLY cold here?}
65. sewing lessons from my grandma
66. a successful first attempt at a project {involving sewing . . . I'm NOT a sewer! but I hope to be soon, after some practice}
67. game night with the girls!
68. laughter
69. getting to hold a sweet little baby at church
70. soup
71. all the jobs Kirb did around the house this weekend {fixing 2 toilets, putting away Christmas, scrubbing all the floors, closet organization, general cleaning, fixing the leaky sink and putting away the laundry}, he's my hero!
72. reminiscing about 2009 as a family and writing down our hopes for the coming year
73. my new boots
74. still getting a trickle of Christmas greetings in the mail most days
75. my orange blanket
76. advil
77. pictures
78. my 3 girls all in legwarmers
79. quiet
80. our new wii
81. naps
82. the library
83. getting back into the routine
84. a resolved health insurance issue
85. peace amidst the trials of having both a dead car {Kirbs'} that we won't be fixing this time {it's been a great 15 years that we've had that car . . . lots of memories and life events took place with it; driving off together as man and wife, pulling into our very own garage at our first home, bringing home our first baby from the hospital, and our second, and our third!}, and a dead computer {mine -- that hopefully is fixable!} in the same week
86. a vikings win that makes my boy happy
87. innumerable blessings from the Lord!

Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for installment #5 and feel free to join in if you'd like. {It's good therapy!}

holy experience


  1. I love your list. Especially #85. It's amazing how many memories a car holds. May God bless you with a new vehicle soon.

  2. Naps and favorite.
    Loved reading your list.

  3. Precious list! I know what you mean about the warm house, warm socks, and coats!


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
