It has been a while since I posted a gratitude list – the computer is at the office, the gratitude journal is at home, and at times it seems never the two shall meet.  But this morning I have both here in front of me at the office and a few minutes to toy with them.

The list is supposed to post on Mondays for Multitude on Mondays over at Ann’s blog, but I’m thinking I’ll get enough grace from that crowd to post on a Tuesday.  So, with utmost thanks to God for all the items, here is the list:

    What a great list. I find that once I start counting my blessings, I realize that I have more than I can possibly count. The Lord is SO good to us, isn’t He?

  3. Little things can add up to peace and joy. Congratulations to your son on his many accomplishments among this list.
