Snow day and counting my gifts

This is day 2 of a snow day for the kids. I think I love it as much as they do. It's so exciting and I love staying inside and being together. Maybe they will go out and play in it later today.
I'm a couple days late on counting 1000 gifts from Jesus...

Gifts #183-203

My boys (10 and 11) reading their bibles intensly. They have questions about the bible non-stop.

I'm thankful for a husband that studied the bible in college.

The beautiful snow.

A sweet time driving in the car last night with my kids each shouting out praises and thanksgiving for things. Sweet Abby was quiet for a while and then said "I'm thankful that Daddy gets to go to school". So precious!!!

A 2 yr old who says "This is the best day I ever seen". Several times a week.

A rocking chair that has rocked all 6 of my sweet babies.

Duct tape to hold the broken spindle together so we can keep rocking (Ha!)

Time with grandparents and cousins.

A close friend that has kids the same ages as mine who love each other as much as my friend and I love each other.

A new sparkle in my husband's eyes.

Grace grace and more grace.

New days, new beginnings, new mercies.


Unending prayer.

A 6 yr old who carries her baby doll around everywhere and loves being a "mommy". I never could swaddle a real baby the way she can swaddle that baby.

My 10 yr old teaching my 4 yr old how to bowl on the wii.


The ability to praise.

The power of thanksgiving.

Thankful that the devil can't stand praise and runs!

  1. Beautiful list, Becky! Laughter, the ability to praise, the power of thanksgiving...and probably my most favorite, "A new sparkle in my husband's eyes". Blessings to you, sweet friend.
