One Thousand Gifts (452-465)

452.  My precious niece who turned six last week. 
453.  My boy's tender heart and prayers for his friend.
454.  My hubby who ventures to the salt mines day after day so he can provide for our family.
455.  The noise of children splashing and playing at the pool.
456.  The smell of sunscreen.  I think it should be designated as the official smell of summer.
457.  The refreshingly cool water of the swimming pool.  Nothing feels better than a quick dip on these unusually hot June days.  
458.  A bright blue sky.
459.  Hot and Sour soup.
461.  Listening to my boy experiment on his drums.  I love hearing him work on new and more complicated beats. 
462.  The smell of lilacs.
463.  A movie that can make me laugh no matter how many times I've watched it (This week's gem: This Is Spinal Tap.)
460.  Baby birds hopping around the yard.  
464.  My bike and it's cute basket.  Not only is it fun to ride, but it has been incredibly useful while my car has been in the shop.
465.  Popsicles.
