I Count Because. . .

. . . when I give intentional thanks,

my heart is worshipful, my restless spirit is content, and my mind ponders the praiseworthy.

~.:Gifts 100 ~ 113:.~

~:  the long~awaited & ardently hoped for "let's catch up soon"

~:  unseasonably warm temperatures

~:  apple cider

~:  dinner on the rooftop

~:  goldenrod, scarlet, crimson, amber, burnt sienna & rust

~:  birthdays & 49 years of life for the person who knew me before I realized I existed

~:  night out with one of my besties at a funky, artsy joint

~:  courage to join the spinning, dancing circle

~:  boom box necklace purchased during my last visit that distant & happy summer

~:  one~on~one time with the new third grade student, frail & meek

~:  leading toddler music & going crazy with bean bags, scarves, & rhythm sticks

~:  an email to my prof from my field placement advisor praising my skills & abilities {for real, now?}

~:  cinnamon rolls with buttercream icing from the farmer's market

~:  tears that wash clean the eyes of my heart
