One thousand gifts (832-846)

832. Asparagus.
833. Self-control. And the many opportunities to practice it.
834. Trimmed windows.
835. Good books.
836. Weeds to pull.
837. Purple stained fingertips from blueberry picking.
838. A country drive and the smell of home fires burning on a chilly day.
839. Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.
840. Windows open around the dinner table.
841. Party invitations.
842. Plum cakes.
843. Blackened street feet of children running through the neighborhood barefoot.
844. Giggles from a three year old while washing her street feet in the sink.
845. Paper prayer rock with a child's name written across it ... and the sensitive heart of a seven year old.
844. A clean office space.
845. Facebook chats.
846. Freedom.
