These are the gifts I’m thankful for today.
#5 listening to my daughter’s speech for school – so well-written and smart!
#6 a phone call from my hard-working, newly-married, first-born daughter
#7 the perfect tart, crisp, green apple
#8 a pain-free day (a gift I thought I would never receive again)
#9 the camellias blooming by my front door
#10 a hug from my needs-a-haircut, drives-me-crazy, makes-me-laugh, candy-consuming, almost-taller-than-me teenage boy
#11 a sister-in-law who is also a holistic nutritionist – in spite of the no-sugar, no-gluten, no-dairy diet she has me on right now
What a difference in my day, looking for the gifts, instead of focusing on my needs!
