One Thousand Gifts – Part 59

  • 447. Watching the joy on my son’s face as he discovered the wonder of all the musical instruments in my Dad’s music room.
  • 448. Seeing J5 run to his grandparents without reserve though it had been a few months since seeing them.
  • 449. J5 sleeping the night through in the hotel. A miracle.
  • 450. Watching my not so little nephew perform magic card tricks.
  • 451. Seeing my niece beam with pride as she showed me her new “teen room”, complete with many shades of pink and purple, adorned with Hannah Montana photos and cool art.
  • 452. Spending time in my sister’s newly redesigned basement – you did some good work there sis!
  • 453. Perfectly cooked medium well steak, creamy cheesy potato casserole, melt in your mouth melon, sangria…shall I go on?
  • 454. The blessing of hand-me-down toys. They’re new to J5 and that’s all that matters!
  • 455. Fun with new technology.
  • 456. A site to keep you surfing uber-geekdom for a really long time
  • 457. Hearing J5’s belly laugh as he experienced his first car wash. A little terror mixed in with the excitement. Daddy likened it to a roller coaster ride.
  • 458. The opportunity to help a friend’s band get their first video. (If you feel like helping out, pick Elyzium!).
  • 459. The fun of charts and graphs and calendars and all sorts of delightful things to help me get a grip on the chaos.
  • 460. Being back home. There’s nothing like it.
  • 461. The ability to share a laugh (for those of us who lived and loved and worked in the 80’s).

    There is no place like home. It’s nice to get away but then when you walk in the door and breathe in the smell of home…it’s wonderful! And sleeping in your own bed….heaven! šŸ™‚

    Jacob loves going through the car wash. It’s a fun adventure.
