“thank you, Jesus, for this day”

That’s how we were taught to always begin our prayers. The day is a good thing to thank Jesus for first…without the chance to live to this day, so many other blessings would be lost. I love how Jubilee misinterpreted this and always began her baby-prayers: “Jesus loves me…” So cute!

495. the letter I got in the mail

496. the letter I still have to respond to 


497. Birdie, my constant and brilliant “idea-bouncer-offer”


498. our “writer’s conferences” late at night, discussing my not-yet-existent novel

499. all of the delicious, nutritious and sometimes exotic meals Sabrina has cooked for us over the past few years…thanks to the marvelous chef as well!

500. the pleasure my family, friends and I gain from sharing funny Jubilee quotes

501. dinner out with the family, even if the restaurant was very loud and crowded

502. good news about a baby we’ve been praying for-the cancer has shrunk and not spread!

503. my piano teacher who was so kind as to let me reschedule my lesson last week when I was hungry and unprepared!

504. making fun plans for this Summer

505. my mother who deserves for every day to be Mother’s Day

506. watching a funny movie with my sisters and mom and Mother’s Day evening

507. Genevieve, my ipod, who makes chores go by faster

508. watching Willin sing and do motions with the children’s choir on stage Sunday

509. watching Jubilee’s baby dolls “help” her with her chores

510. the fact that my future-brother-in-law got into both the classes he needed to graduate

511. my first letter from my sponsored child!

512. all of the precious humming birds that have been buzzing around our yard lately

513. watching my dad and Birdie creating contraptions to take close-ups of the hummingbirds

514. 1 Samuel

    Beth,
    Yes! It was a huge blessing…his classes are at UMHB but they’ll go by really fast and then I imagine he’ll be moving here.

    And yes…I only deal with people who understand my need for a constant stream of food toward my mouth. :)

    Angela,
    Thank you very much!

    Everly

    Oooh, yay, so glad he got into the classes he needs! Where is he taking them? (please say here, please say here!)

    And your piano rescheduling [is fantastic and] made me laugh; you would reschedule due to hunger :)

    Love you!
