One Thousand Gifts (342-354)

"There is not a more pleasing exercise of the mind than gratitude.  
It is accompanied with such an inward satisfaction that the duty 
is sufficiently rewarded by the performance."  
~Joseph Addison

342.  Taking the boy and a friend fishing and watching them catch dozens of sunfish.  His friend, who had never caught a fish before, was smiling from ear to ear. 
343.  Fresh pine needle mulch. 
344.  A boy talking gibberish in his sleep.
345.  Getting ten hours of uninterrupted sleep in one night.  I can't remember the last time I felt so rested.
346.  A slice of mixed berry pie, fresh out of the oven, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  I dare you to find anything better.
347.  My boy's love of pie which nearly surpasses my own.  
348.  Squirt gun fights. 
349.  A cool breeze on an unusually hot spring day.  
350.  Flip-flops.
352.  Driving with the windows rolled down. 
352.  The boy vacuuming up a mess he made without even being asked.
353.  A tall glass of iced tea. 
354.  The stillness and quiet of the house at night.  It is such a peaceful place.
