One Thousand Gifts (315-328)

 "He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, 
but rejoices for those which he has."  ~Epictetus

315.  Our Yoshino Cherry tree bursting into bloom.  It's one of my favorite signs of spring.
316.  My hubby's abundance of vacation days and work holidays.  Sometimes it's difficult to use them all during the course of a year.  
317.  The taste of food cooked on the Weber charcoal grill.  It takes a little more effort than a gas grill, but the flavor is definitely worth it. 
318.  Laughter flowing as we jump on the trampoline under the moonlight. 
319.  Boys chatting beside a campfire.  I love how the firelight dances on their faces.
320.  Friends who happily watch our dog, Brick, whenever we head off on an adventure.
321.  The journey underground as we explored Mammoth Cave (more on that tomorrow).
322.  The wonder of creation. 
323.  The chirps of dozens of songbirds who make our backyard their home. 
324.  Spring thunderstorms.  I love watching the lightening flash across the night sky.
325.  The way the hubby can create wonderfully silly songs off the top of his head.  They always make me laugh.
326.  A new toothbrush. 
327.  Tender blades of new bright green grass poking their heads out of the soil. 
328.  A few days of chilly temperatures, probably the last of the season.

I love your blog and I love your ongoing list. I also adore Jim's gift for crazy songs (and bizarre phone messages).

I have a something to add to your list of gratitude. I am so grateful to you for posting the instructions on your blog for hemming jeans. It has truly changed my life and the lives of the 3 short girls who live in my house.

I'm also very, very grateful you're my friend.

Just stopping by from Ann's, sound like a great camping adventure is taking palce. Our spring break has just started as well. I cannot wait for the orchards to bloom in our neck of the woods. Have a blessed time with your family.

My dad could make up those silly songs. Every one of them rhymed, too. That really brought back memories of childhood. Love that cherry tree in blossom. Almost looks like snow, doesn't it??? Spring is just so wonderful!
