  1. Christie~
    What a GREAT post...and what a great book.

    I heart of thanksgiving is truly...a place we all need to be.

    Praying you have a BLESSED, THANKFUL week.


  2. What a wonderful list. I would love for numbers 21. and 22. to happen for me today! :)

  3. funny how it is a blessing to read what is a blessing to someone else!

  4. Found you at Ann's and I love that you are grateful for the prayers spoken in the middle of the night. I too am grateful for both the ones I speak and the ones that have been spoken on my behalf!

  5. I'm hoping for a hug from my eldest son, he's coming home for a few days.
