One thousand gifts and still counting (6006-6031)

for moments in humility on a Tuesday
a good cry
and an hour's quiet to walk across Milvian Bridge
a friend to catch my overwhelm and encourage me
3:30 a.m. on a Wednesday

Medieval Great Books
seeing last year's Bible students, as friends
a great first day of high school
a fun field trip for the kids
riding with Claudia and her daughter

and the great chats we had that dip below superficial
meeting a new Karen, and loving her immediately
Linda on a Friday night
cookies in the freezer
fall clothes for Erin

a sixth grader and a second grader
dance shoes in stock at the shop
a gift card, unexpected
words during a sermon: hearing "wholehearted" (and)
my favorite verse

Shane and the lectern
ice cream after dinner
reading with Lanie on a couch
the good talks we have
her Post-it note back to me, dotted with a heart "i"

tomatoes gifted in abundance from a neighbor
