multitude monday

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

"One Thousand Gifts":

1122. arrival of the long-awaited book {ordered in September and just released last week}
1123. anticipation that does not disappoint {see above!}
1124. sharing
1125. a husband who takes care of the puke
1126. a little superhero boy fast asleep with toys clutched in his grip {face still stained with ice cream and a sweet girl sharing his room}1127. first belly laughs of a baby
1128. fresh, untouched snow sparkling in the moonlight
1129. the raised eyebrows of my babe which produces that ultra-cute, can't-get-enough-of-it wrinkly baby forehead. oh how I love that!!
1130. Sunday's sermon reminding me of this song {surprisingly, a favorite of mine} :: story of my life {the life of any mom, actually . . . or non-mom even}
1131. hum of the washing machine
1132. a warm bed
1133. forecasts of sun and 20's . . . and the sad, sad fact that that seems nearly tropical!
1134. girls crafting
1135. numbers trending upward
1136. the power of prayer
1137. fabulous, helpful friends
1138. hundreds of happy kindergarteners at the library getting their library card {and a free book!} not to mention the wonderful librarian who put a special smiley face on a certain kindergarteners card
1139. cookie dough
1140. when the congested baby finally stops fighting, melts into my arms . . . and sleeps!
1141. people who do what they can to make a difference :: since none of us can do it all and every little thing matters!
1142. the quiet of 2 am
1143. pom poms made of yarn
1144. reminders of friendships, currently dormant, that bring joy and fun memories
1145. a little boy, a BIG surgery and a great recovery so far. praise God from whom all blessings flow! keep up the good work, Ikey {and Chad and Melissa too}
1146. prayer
1147. no need to leave the house, all. day. long!
1148. the gift of perspective
1149. kids in swimsuits diving for plastic rings while outside the pool deck window the cold winds blow and the snow banks are huge . . . a short little "vacation" from winter

Alrighty, that's it's for now. Tune in next Monday for the next installment.
