the gifts

I'm taking a few minutes in the middle of the day to blog. Or rather to continue my list of gifts, my reminder of the moments and the special things that happen Whether I'm watching for them or not. And today I'm feeling the need to remind myself, to look beyond how I feel right now or how my house looks and be grateful.

346- 359

washer and dryer to do all that laundry for me

glass pitcher filled with lemon-infused water, making drinking enough water a pleasant task 

a good night's sleep

a basement suite that stays somewhat cool even when it is really warm outside

a spray park just across the road

friends who have us over for dinner and are totally relaxed about kids and messes 

the way my little girl's hair curls when it's wet

special times with the girls of the family

Kilmeny's delight in her first daddy-daughter date

the way she needs a kiss after she gets an 'owie' 

knowing that this heat isn't nearly as bad as last summer's heat wave

Sunday afternoons to talk and talk and sort many things out

knowing that today is a gift, and I don't have to worry about the rest of the week or month but just enjoy today

What are you enjoying today?


  1. I'm thankful for the rain we are having today after many days of high temps and dryness. Thank you for sharing your list this week. Blessings!
