1000 Gifts, Week VI

This one's going to be a quickie as I am waiting on the boy to finish his breakfast so I can take him to the pediatrician. Boyfriend was up and screaming all night long. The logical part of my mind says it's due to those 4 molars that are bursting through his jaw. The scared mommy part is totally convinced we've got an ear infection on our hands.

Week 6 of the Joy Dare! By the end of the year I should have listed 1000 little gifts from God that I am thankful for.

This week, I'm thankful for:

104. watching the baby play in the shower
105. a little finger that points at everything
106. drinking from a straw
107. a husband who helps out
108. midnight medicine runs
109. a beautiful moon

110. sweet gifts just because 
111. healthy friendships
112. fun things in the mail
113. surprise expenses that can can immediately pay off
114. Chik-Fil-A (and their playground)
115. hearing others talk about how awesome God is
116. seeing a sweet family take in a baby and make him their own
117. daddy/son bonding time
118. yummy cakes

119. being in a much better place than I was a year ago
120. opportunities to save my money

122. the little things that make life easier
123. knowing how to comfort my son
124. making it official

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
