  1. What fun to read your list! And get a glimpse of your beautiful family. As of yesterday, I'm the mom of two teens, too. So many gifts in the journey! Blessings from a fellow gift-counter!

    1. Lovely to meet you Alicia, thanks for stopping by :) So many gifts, yes!

  2. Hi Wendy! How wonderful that you have so much to be grateful for...a real witness to God's love in your life. I especially liked the one about 'my voice heard and understood'. Who doesn't crave to be understood?

    Good to see you again!

  3. Lovely of you to stop by Ceil. Yes, being heard and understood is so good :) A new learning curve for me as so often it is easier to just keep quiet.
    Have a wonderful week!
