One Thousand Gifts (366-381)

© shoutingforha

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father 
of the heavenly lights, who does not change like 
shifting shadows."  James 1:17 (NIV)

366.  The empty tomb.
367.  A husband who makes sure I know that I am loved. 
368.  My neighbor selflessly letting me use her car and chauffeuring me around while my truck was in the shop. 
369.  Watching my boy (10) teaching our neighbor girl (12) how to shoot a BB gun.  
370.  My KitchenAid mixer.  It makes baking so, so easy.
371.  Giant maple trees which blanket the backyard in shade. 
372.  Car repairs that were less extensive than I expected.  Who knew I could be so happy to replace a water pump?
373.  Lemon squares.  Oh, how I love the buttery shortbread crust.
374.  Puffy, sleep filled eyes at the breakfast table.  
375.  Long conversations with a new friend.  
376.  The smell of Peppermint & Rosemary soap on a sleepy morning.  The clean, fresh scent has the ability to wake me up when all else fails.
377.  Bright green blades of wheat grass spilling over the edges of a pot.
378.  I never thought I would say it, but I'm thankful for nose spray.  The past two weeks would have been unbearable without it.
379.  Peonies poking their heads up out of the soil. 
380.  My hubby coming home with four tubes of my favorite toothpaste because he noticed it was on sale for 50% off the regular price.
381.  Staying up late talking with the hubby.

The kitchen-aid, noise spray, lemon squares, and peonies should all be added to my list. Actually, lemon squares should also be added to my menu. Your husband buying your toothpaste is super sweet!

Oh I loved your list. I first thought "what a great boy to teach a neighbor girl how to shoot a bb gun" and then I read about your sweet husband. He is obviously a great example as a father.
