multitude monday

Here's my continuing Multitude Monday post, which all started a while back, right here.

"One Thousand Gifts":

994. fresh, beautiful snow
995. sleigh rides on a perfect winter morning {pulled by reindeer, no less}::996. a successful Christmas-card-picture photo shoot
997. a house that smells of Christmas
998. time this week to make some cards again {it had been awhile}
999. my mom being well enough to go to church again {for the first time in weeks} and start back at work a few hours a day{after not having taken a sick day in the better part of a decade, so has taken two entire weeks worth all at once}
1000. {nearly} a year of counting my many blessings! When I saw that today would push me over the 1,000 mark, I looked back to see when I started this journey and it was 12.14.09. Almost exactly 1 year and 1000 blessings counted {and more than that even, but you can't "count" them all}
1001. night trains: magical and fun! {no matter who you are or how old, you really should take the time to go; you'll be glad you did}::1002. time to sit and chat with friends
1003. shared commiseration
1004. my wonderful husband bearing an almond latte for me at the end of the day
1005. laughter
1006. watching my "baby" mother my baby::1007. a husband who decorates for Christmas
1008. singing carols around the player piano {I took out some trash while the carolling was in process and you can hear the piano from way out by the street, even with the house completely closed up. Yup, it's kinda loud! -- but really fun.}::1009. Christmas tree "shopping"
1010. the kids decorating the tree
1011. a nap to help with a nasty Sunday afternoon headache
1012. warm blankets
1013. advent candles, Christmas carols, poinsettias . . . church during Advent
1014. email from Poland

Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for the next installment. {You didn't think I'd stop just because I reached 1,000, did you?}
