Sunday Blessings {On Monday Morning}

Sometimes we get caught up in living the gifts and don't take time to count the gifts.  Ah, well.  We can always catch up later! 537.  Lots of snuggle time on an off day. 538.  Breakfast for dinner.  Twice. 539.  Working outside, dirt to show it. 540.  Screaming hilarity at a rogue water hose.  541.  My blue shoes.  They make me happy. 542.  Green grass in … [Read more...]
