Multitudes on Mondays

And again, with the blessing counting.

44. the truth that, even on their worst days and mine, these countless hours with them are a gift not to be taken for granted
45. the calm that came within five minutes of being in my dad's presence
46. the perfectly timed reminder of precious childhood memories with him in the form of a John Cougar Melloncamp song on the radio
47. those who hold the Christ-light for me in the night-time of my fear
48. the marvelous inventions of caffeine free Coca Cola and lactose free milk, their surprisingly strong resemblance to the real thing
49.  the babe's happy disposition when I don't stupidly indulge in the real things.
50. the chance to relax, laugh, and just breathe in the company of dear friends sans babykins
51. the precious papa who encourages, pushes for even, me to enjoy nights like last
52. the gift of blogging and the encouragement and advice amidst life's tangles from strangers and near strangers as well as friends
53. the always timely reminder to slow down and enjoy the magic of life and the related commandment to rest

"'Sometimes", said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.'" -A.A. Milne
