I’m still counting with Ann Voskamp and The Gratitude Community, and I’m halfway to my first One Thousand Gifts! Won’t you join me?
#466. for a homeschool co-op full of wonderful families to interact with monthly.
#467. for a very talented artist who taught the co-op about Antoni Gaudi and his work . . .
#468. . . . and then helped the kids begin their own mosaics! (We’ll add grout and finish them up in February.)
#469. for opportunities (and multiple ways) to share what I’m learning with others.
#470. for sunshine and spring-like temperatures before the cold, cloudy winter days return.
#471. for a good pot of homemade deer chili. (I never thought I’d write that, but I’ve come to appreciate the taste of venison this winter!)
#472. for a day to rest and recuperate.
#473. for a new washing machine . . .
#474. . . . and plumbing that functions correctly.
#475. for a fun project to work on with the girls during the next few weeks. (More details coming Thursday!)
#476. for the anticipation of a break from the books to attend a Valentine’s Day party . . .
#477. . . . and a fun field trip we’re taking in February!
#478. for children who love God . . .
#479. . . . and are showing the development of discernment in their lives.
#480. for the amazing way God develops friendships between people who haven’t yet met in person . . .
#481. . . . and how He makes it seem like we’ve already met because our spirits have bonded in Him.
#482. for the beauty of a pink and purple sunset.
#483. for the peace that comes from being obedient to God.
#484. for the look of shock on others’ faces when you do what that still, small voice told you to do.
#485. for prayers that small acts of kindness will bring great glory to Him.
#486. for plans that were changed, but not canceled. (His timing is perfect!)
#487. for the joy of learning alongside my children.
#488. for pleasant and helpful customer service representatives.
#489. for people who know more than I do about “business” . . .

#491. for a husband who believes in me.
#492. for friends who love with a sacrificial and unconditional love.
#493. for more information about worms than I wanted to know.
#494. for the fun of “digging for dinosaurs” at the kitchen table. (That project is still underway. It takes a long time.)
#495. for the wonder of seeing something new in every Bible in 90 Days reading.
#496. for the great discussions that come out of The One Year Fun & Active Devotions for Kids devotional we’re reading together each day.
#497. for questions the girls ask that cause me to dig deeper into the Word to find the answers.
#498. for academic progress that has Roo spelling out words we’ve studied as she plays—even when she’s not sure what they spell!
#499. for all the wonderful craft supplies the girls were given for Christmas. (The creative juices are flowing!)
#500. for the changes God has wrought in me while counting the first half of my One Thousand Gifts!
What blessings are you rejoicing in today?
