One thousand gifts and still counting (2959-2978)

every drop of sweat and achy body part

the organic smell of mulch
strawberry cakes (two!)
Home Defense bug spray
green velvet boxwoods
Mom card exchanged with business card

a new blog project
that You equip those You call
a cold bottle of water from a thoughtful husband
recognition in the small things
her name and mine on the back of a Valentine, two heads together and smiles

a glider bench in the garden
sky and leafy views
how You give back what the locusts ate--that destroying army sent against
and that I found that verse in Joel
hearts in the garden

all the plans in my heart (from breakfast meetings to barbecues to book clubs)
her great love and sweet tears
a sunny weekend
