  1. What a lovely list you have! I especially appreciate the flowers and fruit. Mmm...

  2. My son is on his third antibiotic for strep and just got blood drawn to check form mono. It must be going around. Nice to meet you through Multitudes on Mondays.

  3. Great list. The other morning the clouds in the sky on my drive to work were just fabulous. I love little morning blessings like that.

  4. Love the one, under gifts in dirt, "Time spent with children cleaning out closets." That can be such a dirty and loathsome job, especially if it was the kid's room closet!! Thanks for sharing all God's graces in your life!!

    In His Lo♥e, Ann
