If I let myself, I could go back to six months ago.
But, I don’t.
I count forward.
This time I counted in a notebook. Sometimes, this life wont let me record the blessing this blog I love so much.
and then the girls and I took a day trip to celebrate the passing of six months.
So much has happened in six months.
I pulled out my notebook this morning to count the wonderful day. . . and when I counted I could hardly see through the tears . . . . the 1001 Gift was big.
Oh so big!
The smiles back, and the dust is settling.
and life is almost back to normal again.
and I’ve decided to keep counting to see what 2002 gifts look like
because . . . WOW!
