One Thousand Gifts (382-397)

"For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

382.  The first taste of coffee after a season of Lent.
383.  My boy's favorite blanket, which becomes more soft and warn with each washing.
384.  Weather warm enough to break out my summer skirts.
385.  Boy's leaping around while they play video games.  Whoever said playing video games leads to childhood obesity has never watched my boy.  
386.  Cadbury Cream Eggs.  Enough said.
387.  The sound of a snoring dog sleeping by my feet.
388.  Rib-eye steaks cooked on the charcoal grill.
389.  A magnificent lightening show flashing across the night sky.
390.  The laughter of girlfriends.
391.  The bright blue sky and warm sun after days of endless rain and storms.
392.  A new windshield in the car.  I didn't realize how pitted the old one had become.
393.  Chatting with my sister as she drove from her mountain home down to Denver for work.  I'm so thankful we became friends.
394.  Having a really great story to share when people ask what happened to my finger.  (I'll give you the whole scoop tomorrow.)
395.  Health insurance which makes broken bones merely a hassle and not a financial burden.
396.  Warm days and cool evenings. 
397.  Knowing that there is only three weeks and two days left of school.  I am ready for summer vacation.

Love your picture of the French Press - it is my favorite way to make coffee. Yes, I bet you do appreciate more the taste of coffee the first day you drink it after 40 days without it! Summer skirts, lightning storms, and grilled steaks are delightful. Being thankful for health insurance should be high on everyone's list who has it. I can't wait to see your finger story.
