Multitude Monday, Take 260

I've had so much to be thankful for over the last couple of weeks--most notably, the epic girls' weekend in New York City that I spent with my mom and my aunt last weekend! That will need a travelogue blog series all its own, once I've gone through the hundreds of photos I took :) In the meantime, a few other gifts for which I'm thanking God:

4289. the fact that I'm not a single mom
4290. the fact that Steve only has to work two or three weekends a year
4291. Elijah helping Jude put his shoes on
4292. all His promises are YES (not "maybe") in Christ
4293. a mom who read to me

4294. one-on-one time with a dear friend
4295. the bush that had overtaken the sidewalk on the way to preschool FINALLY getting trimmed back
4296. Steve serving cheerfully, caring for our own boys plus two others
4297. the sacrifices that military families make
4298. a long-overdue visit with a dear friend

4299. my in-laws coming down and serving us again
4300. the peaceful emptiness of Kroger at 9 PM on a Friday
4301. a quiet afternoon to process some thoughts and emotions
4302. opportunities to serve families with new babies
4303. dinner at Five Guys with my guys

4304. a walk at Centennial Park afterward
4305. Sunday afternoon naps
4306. disposable diapers for when Jude is having tummy troubles
4307. an old journal filled, a fresh one begun
4308. even when I am not amazed by His grace, He continues to lavish it on me
