401. Sleet against windows.
402. Good coffee.
403. Warm socks.
404. Lanie playing Jingle Bells on the piano while Erin jumps in time on the couch.
405. Beckie--who watches my kids at a moment's notice, blogs with me, listens to me, likes me.
406. Yummy apple salad at Panera.
407. Hugs and kisses.

414. Opportunities that take me out of my comfort zone.
415. Truth.
416. Good neighbors.
417. (chocolate ... shh)
418. Lipton Quietly Chamomile Tea (and people who correct me to say Chamo-mile instead of Chamo-meal. I say tomato, you say tomato, it's still a tomato.)
419. Prayers.
420. Good teaching.
421. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
422. Humility.
423. Forgiveness.

Still thankful for so many things. Some of them repeats, but worth counting as blessings again and again. Count yours too as part of the gratitude community at a holy experience.
