Love reading #950. Thanks for sharing these, Jamie.


So sorry you have been sick! But, it is nice sometimes to just focus on loving on them and getting them well. Life seems to slow a bit when we are sick, doesn’t it!

You are so close to 1000!!!! Will you keep going?


So many beautiful things to be thankful for.

After visiting Daze of Adventures and seeing you there, it just occurred to me that I haven’t yet added you to my new blog! (It’s a lot of work making a move!:)

Hope you have a blessed week!


Wonderful list, the photo is great.
Came by from the HHH, haven’t been by here in awhile so it was nice to “see” you.


I’m visiting from Ann’s today. I know it’s Wednesday – but there are so many!!

I always pick a favorite – 950) A husband who takes seriously the responsibility of protecting his daughters (and I bet he protects his bride as well – He has an important job with them – and you – and that you notice it – that makes you pretty great yourself)

Thank you for sharing these

God Bless you and yours and your gratitude journey.
