I love reading others lists:) Just found your site and loved #522. I haven't gotten up the courage to do that yet. I need a smaller camera :)

I cannot wait for Spring!! It has been long wet winter here. I am hoping for lots of sunfilled days and longer afternoons. Loved your list. Glad to have stopped by.

Oh, Wowzers!!!! I'm speechless here! The pictures are just too beautiful and your list of gratitudes just warmed the cockles of my heart (whatever they are)! I just love that hymn, too. A perfect ending to a perfect list today! Thank you!

Here it is, I’m here from Ann’s – it’s Sunday morning and I’m still reading thank you lists. Seems the more thanks I read – the more thankful I get.

And I always pick a favorite from the list, today my favorite from yours was, 525. the hymn, "How Great Thou Art" (oh, because I heart that song. And I look at the picture and how much concentration and effort in the playing and I just see a living analogy. To really sing the hymn in my life I need to focus – focus on Him, the listing helps me do that – and reading stuff like this) {smile}

Thank you for this, and God Bless and keep you and your family
