Few Words, Many Thanks

Sometimes I stare at a blank post window for what seems like hours.

Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to say of value.

Perhaps, that's a good thing:

When there are many words, transgression in unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise.  Proverbs 10:19
So today I'll just keep silent, and let the blessings that Christ poured out on me this last week speak for themselves.

Counting 2182-2193 of the thousands of gifts He gives each day.

  • Little girls insisting on trying on momma-made PJs
  • Bronwyn's new headband obsession
  • Dinner and Dancing out with Derek
  • Aeralind's often unexpected tackle hugs
  • Serious enjoying stripping furniture with Derek
  • Too big T-shirts made into little girl dresses for next spring/summer
  • Planning a favorite things birthday party for the girls
  • passing the 3 hour glucose 
  • 72 degree morning at the park
  • Confident kiddos on steps, stairs, ladders, and slides
  • Discipline-even when it's hard
  • One thing to be thankful for about maggots: Laughter caused by random maggot-inspired phone calls :)
holy experience

Maggots??? What a horrible thing. I hope they weren't in someone's kitchen because her husband missed the trash can. :-)

Praise for the glucose results!!

#2193 is my favorite!

Of course, I really don't know what you're talking about, but it's funny ;)


#2192 I get this. Boy, do I get this!

Praise, praise, praise for passing your glucose test! It took them long enough to let you know--sheesh!

I really have no idea where maggots came from... aren't they what inspired the theory of Evolution... don't they spring up out of nothing?! Regardless... they make me laugh now :)
