One thousand gifts and still counting (6358-6393)

a barren winter tree speckled with big, black crows
warm rooms
warmth of a blanket

the sound of my kids playing inside the house
their laughter
getting along days
the chance to hold a sweet baby boy
an afternoon visit with his mama

gifts from a neighbor that thrilled my kids
sunrises through the woods line
drifting fog
the checkout woman at Wegmans
our conversations

piano books found for hand-me-down
a scarf for Lanie
a visit with David
three paintings
Christmas music

a seventh year on 66 Books
tears in the afternoon
Christmas craft day
photobook memories for the girls
a cross with white lights

peanut butter blossom cookies
organic sugar
serving at church for Christmas services
homeschool skate days
Erin in my arms early in the morning when she had a bad dream

decluttering, and thoughts about an uncluttered life
for David, a father who chose me
Erin yelling down the laundry chute
tidied spaces
texts with Nora and Beckie

handmade Christmas cards from Michelle
honor in the mail
no school
