one thousand gifts

when I pet a zebra [436-467]

October is ready to leave us. November is creeping in. Snow has already appeared throughout the states and teasing us with its’ potential appearance later this week. I’m not quite sure if I’m ready for it yet. Snowflakes and sugarplums can wait a bit.

For those of you that are new here or catching up: I have been taking a slight break from blogging and instead, am focusing on paying attention to the gifts that God has placed in my life. One thousand gifts, to be exact. There are so many beautiful things to see — from the smallest kiss on the cheek to the gorgeous sunsets He paints. Everything is perfectly made just for us. We just need to stop, look around, drink it all in, and savor it. I am enjoying my life, but I also miss writing and plan to start blogging again soon.
