Monday Morning Gratitudes

(Note: I prepared these before Christmas, and somehow, in the rush, I overlooked them. I'm still grateful for each and every one of them, so if you can forgive another mention of Christmas, I'm going to post these for today.)

(And one more note! Sigh. I thought I'd hit publish, but obviously didn't. So . . . you're getting these either later Monday night or whenever you read them. Sorry!)

The laughter of children in my home.
The pleased look in my brother's eyes with the lemon pie I prepared for him.
Amanda's pleasure with our fireplace.
Babies' smiles
The sound of packages being opened.
My husband's voice as he reads the Christmas story.
The beautiful cards from Son #1.
The words of love from my husband's romantic card.
A warm furnace.
The tired, satisfied feeling a well-accomplished day brings.

Blessings!

I LOVE baby smiles too, Caroline. What a gift.

I'm so glad that you're a part of the gratitude community. And Happy New Year, sweet friend.

Thanks for your encouragement and special prayer for me. You really blessed me.

Thank you for reminding me of what I need to be focusing on... my thankfulness to the Lord for His blessings in my life.
