One Thousand Gifts *253 - 260*

253. The beautiful trees with sunlight pouring through the leaves like golden honey..

254. The churches I pass on my walks through town... when the windows are aglow, I know someone's working or praying inside. I am grateful for their presence.

255. The incredible harvest of rhubarb and the best cake recipe ever from dear, sweet Linda.

256. Warm hellos from family and friends ~ more golden honey in my life.

257. I thank the birds for their lesson:
When life makes puddles, take a lesson from the birds and splish-splash.

258. The thoughtfulness of my children. Delicious, homemade crabapple jam~ Thank you Amanda, birdie note cards~Thank you Rachael, stopping over to help with the dogs & share dinner~Thank you Jason.

258. Safe travels for us and others.

Glorious gifts of painted creation.

259. Trees

260. Skies
