1000 gifts and then some...

Continuing the count - at least the written count (#101- #110) - 
and remembering gifts given through out time:

new tennis shoes with curly laces

cardboard boxes
(do you KNOW everything I can do with a cardboard box? she says excitedly)

God-given imagination!

hair straightened

a friend calling and sharing her great news of being GIVEN an equine therapy business and wanting sweet tweener to come take horse back riding lessons!
(I've been WANTING to learn how to ride a horse! she declared.)
(Yes!  God knew it and He is making it happen at just the right time!)

lunch at school with a public school friend,
and meeting all of her friend's friends!



God's blessings on her even when she is R.E.A.L.L.Y. grounded
(the shoes were 1. on clearance; 2. the brand we had been looking for all week; 3. had the new "fitness heel"; 4. and gel in the bottom!!! He gave her EXACTLY what she wanted!)


Two sleepover birthday parties (but on the same night!)



watching her live in joy

learning, always learning

I just bought this book. So who straightens her hair, you or your daughter, I have very curly hair, and to my 15 year old son's dismay, he has inherited it.

Lovely gifts! This post just radiates joy. My boys can come up with a million uses for cardboard boxes too.

Is there anything better than a cardboard box? Oh, yes - spray bottles and flashlights...

This post is a happy one. And amen - all the things a kid can do with a box - that's magic too - we lose it a bit don't we - maybe more than a bit. I read lots of posts every day - I don't always smile this big. God bless and keep you and all of yours.

Great list! My kids {and me} are always trying to convince my husband we need a horse, not want...need! I'm a new follower, please stop by and return the favor.
