One Thousand Gifts *271- 270*

271. Take home dinner that's big enough for two!

272. Saturday mornings... quiet... hot second cups of coffee...

273. Longer time together ~ walks and talks

274. Rachael & Juan's great arrangement with wedding venue...

275. Pies already made and in the freezer

276. Authors that weave love and faith in their stories so that students in a sterile, secular environment can find some truth and beauty.

277. Challenging students that test my teaching skills and patience.

278. Tender students that tug at heartstrings and reach out for hugs

279. Still innocent students that still need a teddy bear.

280. The joy of my nieces during their visit on Tuesday...Their 'pleases' and 'thank yous' hugs and giggles.

~All is Gift ...... All is Blessing
