1000 gifts and then some...

Continuing the count - at least the written count (#168- #180)
and remembering gifts given throughout time:

The souls who have fought for the ideals of this great country - throughout time...


Sitting on the breeze way
with the family
because the electricity went out during the severe storms last Tuesday...



Hearing the tornado sirens go off in the distance and thanking God
that it is only our comfort
temporarily compromised...


Eating up the ice cream from the freezer all in one sitting since it was going to just melt anyway!

Listening to Michael's "opera metal rock" while watching the fireflies flit,
and eventually watching the fireflies tuck themselves in for the night...
Don't you wonder why they go to sleep when the sun totally disappears?


4 days of rest for the husband...


Enjoying tweener "sleeping in" and remembering those days of my own!




Early rising to go volunteer at the Equine Therapy Center...
and husband having as much of a good time as tweener!

Prayers for health from a son far away...
and our entire family does enjoy exceptional health for our ages!

Wind in grass, childhood memories softly emerging...a young girl, playing with grass heads gone to seed, calling them "fox tails" because of the reddish tint of the head, 
and because of the soft brush of them over the cheeks....

that Texas is actually having a spring this year!

Fresh, cool air...

God's grace on it all...

That breeze way looks like a wonderful place to sit and sip some tea. Glad you guys were kept safe during the storm. Have you had rain? My son lives in the drought-stricken part of Texas. Oh, and the vid was just lovely.

Jodi is right; that breezeway looks like a nice place to sit awhile :) My teen and tween slept in today, too. Nice to have leisurely mornings sometimes.

I love your family(?) eating the ice cream in one sitting since it was going to melt anyway. It made me happy, maybe a sugar rush of my own, and made me laugh. Thank you for sharing your list this week. Blessings!

We experienced no power as well, but only for a short while, so no excuse to eat the entire ice-cream!

Beautiful list this week...and lovely pictures...can imagine sitting with you!
