Multitude Monday - 1000 Gifts ~

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;

for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;

and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

~ Audrey Hepburn

Sometimes, I think, the written words in and of themselves speak loudly enough...


this week's gratitude list:

(#'s 2194 - 2222)

zinger quotes where truth pierces... like the one above

rediscovered old photos that I think are just beautiful, even if they aren't technically superb

funny high school dramas

daughter acting the part of principal Medusa Crabneck

drama being finished so we don't have to worry about after school and Saturday morning practices any more

sand storms


God's grace to crazy motorcyclists who ignore the fact that high speed racing down the middle of a two lane bridge (with traffic moving in both lanes) is risky behavior

light and fluffy made from scratch biscuits for the very first time

good discussions

cheesy romantic flicks with super gorgeous music soundtracks

Sunday afternoon frolics at the pool

littlest girl really starting to swim

next to littlest girl turning into a full-fledged fish

shared french fries

power cuts making me thankful for the electricity

being able to turn the A/C's on, if we decide we need to... or want to

thankful when our A/C's cool the room down to 86' (and laughing over the fact that that is plenty hot enough for our Michigan friends to think they need to turn their A/C's on)

only 5 weeks left

enjoying swim classes at the military pool

seeing former students return and then shine in positions of responsibility

taco dinners that I don't have to make

creme on sale... and so another batch of homemade ice cream this week

Joe brought potato chips to share with the family for dinner tonight - I saved mine to eat on my ice cream!

seeing my Gourmantché grandma friend and Salamatou this past month - an answer to prayer since I've often wondered over the past 3 years... (Here's the link to a post where I shared a bit of their story - if you are interested. I'm praying much for safe travel back to their village in Burkina and health. Salamatou has already lost her pinky finger due to lack of medical care and food in their village.)

snuggling with Salamatou during the service this morning - until Rebekah stole her away for Sunday School

looking forward to ladies' Bible study this week

gorgeous gift of a dress - finally planning to head to the tailor this week to get it taken up to actually fit so I can wear it for grad this year

smiles and laughter that abounds
