Multitude Monday, Take 232

“Joy is always a function of gratitude — and gratitude is always a function of perspective. If we are going to change our lives, what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.” --Ann Voskamp

Thanking God this week for...

2582. chiropractic care
2583. spinach quiche with puff-pastry crust
2584. Jude trying to climb into the bathtub, gleefully pounding the side
2585. early morning quiet time
2586. cell phones when you're lost in the middle of nowhere

2587. the fact that I actually had a signal in the middle of nowhere
2588. a local farm where we can get fresh chicken and pork
2589. the sweet family who runs it and their showing us around to see the animals, including...
2590. a gentle horse
2591. seven nursing piglets climbing all over each other

2592. freedom to be real and raw and vulnerable with dear friends

2599. reading We're Going on a Book Hunt with Elijah and doing the motions

2602. encouraging emails and a snail-mail card
