1000 gifts: #41-50

kids that sleep through thunderstorms

reading a good book before bed

bare feet on the grass

big blue eyes that squint when smiling

a happy, content baby, even when it's way past his bedtime


pure joy in the eyes of a 3 year old (a post will be coming soon about the source of that joy!)

a husband who is handy

a humbling moment of realization and understanding

THREE weeks without using Emmett's eczema prescription cream (sorry if this one is getting redundant, but every day that his skin is not red, itchy, irritated, weeping or bleeding is like a gift to me - and to him too I'm sure! It's also a gift to be able to treat his minor flare-ups with just natural means, and not steroids.)

    Isn't it fun to count this way? I like so many things on your list, and am thankful with you for your son's medicine working.
