Your first three, Cindi... made me well up with tears. It is the essence of it all, no? Grace, forgiveness and a Cross.

I look forward to reading more of your list, dear friend...

Much love...
All is grace,
Ann

Amen, Cindi. So many of our basic needs are taken care of in the blessed country of ours. We are so blessed if we can warm out homes at the flip of a switch! Beautiful list.

Hi! Just surfing through from the Mr. Linky. #33...isn't fleece made of recycled aluminum cans? How do they DO that?!

I love the sound of laughing children and the smell of (clean) babies too.

Keep thanking -- 1000 is not going to be easy, is it?
