multitude monday

Here's my continuing Multitude Monday posting, which all started here.

"One Thousand Gifts":

217. having a 2nd vehicle again! {we picked up our "new" -- you know, a '97 is still pretty new, right? -- car on saturday . . . 2 months after our loyal friend the nissan got towed away. we call the "new" car "the nissan" even though it's a lumina. old habits die hard and that car saw us through so much!}
218. amazing, fresh-from-the-pan, heavenly valentine morning cinnamon rolls from keys {i can't emphasize enough how delicious they -- yes, they -- were!}
219. being able to bless some friends by taking a couple of their kiddos so they could celebrate their anniversary and valentine's day. {& since Rebekah had a friend over too, that means there were 8 kids in our house on sunday!}
220. valentine dinner at my mom's {7 kids, 5 adults}
221. creativity
222. a good book {i finished this one this week, got this one in the mail and am excited to start it, and am currently in the middle -- ok, not quite the middle -- of this one}. i love to read!
223. friends, friendship
224. news that some of our friends will soon also be our neighbors! whoo hoo! can't wait!
225. having the kiddos home from school for a couple extra days {thank you, presidents and conferences!} . . .
226. . . . knowing they will go back to school on wednesday :)
227. a good sermon
228. making people happy
229. people who genuinely care and want to help
230. watching icicles drip . . .
231. . . . sunshine
232. dreaming of the future
233. enjoying the present
234. grace
235. valentine's
236. the absurdity of how high the piles of snow are at the end of my driveway. it just makes me chuckle . . . it will melt eventually, right?
237. online shopping
238. joey telling us he's going to stop sucking his thumb {i'll believe it when i see it, but it's a step in the right direction, at least!}
239. my off-week!
240. the YMCA
241. getting back to working out and how good it feels
242. a warm house
243. the early morning quiet as everyone still sleeps

Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for the next installment, and feel free to join in if you'd like.

holy experience


  1. I love online shopping. Even if you are ordering something boring like Probiotics, you get excited because you get a PACKAGE! it makes everything fun!

  2. What a neat idea for counting your blessings! It really helps our attitudes about life when we can see how blessed we really are! You are really blessed!


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