Counting to 1000 Gifts: # 21-30

I’ve been counting my gifts and I’m excited because we’ve been reading the book, One Thousand Gifts, for our women’s Bible study now.

So here are gifts 21-30:

21. A great day at the zoo

Here are some highlights (the first photo was taken by me, the rest were taken by Nick):

Little guy studying the map

See if you can spot the baby tree kangaroo!

This bear was swimming around

The two tigers were walking around right by the glass


22. Great weather for our zoo trip – it wasn’t too hot or too cold, and the rain held off until we were walking to the car – perfect

23. Friends who are willing to send stuff to me to support me ❤

24. Christian Family Planning Network

25. The flexibility of my husband’s job

26. Groceries

27. A car that doesn’t sound like it’s going to fall apart every time we drive it

28. A working washer

29. Warm clothes for chillier weather

30. A successful Gathering! (event for our church)

Counting to 1000 Gifts: #11-20

All right, here’s my list for today (based on the book):

11: Comfy nightgowns
12: Winning a mystery book giveaway and it being the perfect book for me
13: The morning news
14: That I live in a free country
15: The stove
16: Frozen teethers
17: Baby laughter
18: Warm sweatshirts (Okay I know it is not cold out but my hubby likes to have the AC which makes me cold)
19: Eggs
20: My husband playing with our son

Now I didn’t check last week’s before I wrote this so there might be some repeats but that just means I’m extra thankful and they are the gifts that keep on giving 🙂 What are you thankful for?

Counting to 1000 Gifts: #1-10

So, I have heard of this book called One Thousand Gifts and while I haven’t read it yet (though I’m hoping we’ll do it for our women’s Bible study, after we finish our current book, Chazown) I understand the concept. I saw another blogger counting their 1000 gifts, so I thought that I would try too.

1. People who read my blog

2. A comfy couch

3. A warm robe

4. A nursing necklace

5. My church

6. Groceries

7. Donuts

8. The smile of a little guy

9. The morning news

10. The baby swing

What are you thankful for? Maybe you should start your own list!

Also, if you could take a second to vote, that would be great 🙂

Have a happy Monday!
