One Thousand Gifts (355-365)

"As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude 
renew itself daily.  The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my 
grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world." 
~Terri Guillemets

355.  Crosses folded from palm leaves (a Palm Sunday tradition).
356.  Our beast, Brick, who is convinced that he is a lap dog.
357.  Boys leaping out of the giant magnolia tree onto the trampoline.  Oh, to be young and reckless again.
358.  The sound of rolling thunder on an April night.
359.  The boy's fierce love of animals. 
360.  A horrible cold, which forced me to spend two days just resting.  It's funny how I sometimes have to get sick before I will actually be still.
361.  How rapidly the landscape of Tennessee changes from brown into a dense, lush green.  Even after sixteen years, this Colorado girl is still amazed every spring.
362.  The hubby singing silly songs over the phone to my nieces.  I loved hearing them shout, "Again!  Again!"
363.  Helicopter seed pods twirling from the branches of the maple tree. 
364.  Fresh squeezed limeade with a hint of mint.  It's superior to lemonade in every possible way.
365.  Throw pillows made from my Grandmother's ancient napkins.

Beautiful list!

I have some free Easter / "He Is Risen" blog buttons if you would like one to display on your blog during Holy Week! They are on my blog and free to anyone who would like one. :-)

Celebrating His resurrection,
