"When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?"
~George Canning

1046.  A tree that is still standing after being struck by lightening and losing the bark on one side. 
1047. The smell of sunscreen and chlorine on my boy's sun-kissed skin.
1048.  My boy's excitement as we plan a return trip to Disney World.
1049.  Benadryl.  It saved our dog's life after he decided to try and eat a bee.  Crazy beast!
1050.  Finally finding a book that I loved.  After suffering through a string of mediocre novels, I was delighted to discover Unbroken, A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption, by Laura Hillenbrand
1051.  A kitchen counter filled with jars of homemade jam.
1052.  Anticipating the start of the boy's first year in Middle School.
1053.  A boy who decided to help weed the flower beds without being asked.
1054.  Sundresses and flip flops on hot summer days.
1055.  A night of great music and incredible showmanship at the Drum Corps International Masters of the Summer Music Games. 
1056.  Watching the model trains speed around the track at Phillips Toy Mart
1057.  Light, flaky biscuits and homemade preserves at the Loveless Cafe.
1058.  Favorite old hymns being sung at church.
1059.  Celebrating a dear friend's 49th birthday.
1060.  A great evening spent laughing with friends old and new. 
1061.  Weekends spent with my two favorite people.

I never would have thought to give a dog Benadryl. I too love the smell of sunscreen and chlorine on my kids.
