2013-things-of-thanks | Week 27

Thanks for tracking with me as I count a couple thousand of God’s over-countably un-countable gifts of goodness and growth. If you’re wondering why I’m not doing much other blogging – I’m working on a book that will be out on Amazon later this year, DV. I’ll keep you in the loop.

Here are this week’s 39 things:

1015 Murray home tomorrow

1016 Lachlan and Analia McIntosh, at last

1017 Julian and Ena and Mamelodi for a month

1018 Skype chats with Murray –

1019 And hearing American birds in the background – no accent

1020 Plasticland

1021 When the boys don’t sleep in the day and fall asleep quickly at night

1022 Promise of presents – yay!

1023 Salt and vinegar chips

1024 Smell of plaster

1025 An evening alone to tidy out the Tupperware drawer (because I’m a freak)

1026 Text from Shae about paint in the carpet

1027 Boys playing dolls

1028 Alarm jingle on my new phone – so un-alarming

1029 Meeting new moms at a party

1030 Hope when I think about the bushveld

1031 Jo – mother of almost-four – radiant

1032 My world in Dropbox when I’m stranded and need it

1033 All veggies eaten and thanks offered and plates carried to the sink and there’s pinch-myself delight in these little men

1034 Drakensberg Boys’ Choir CD borrowed from my Dad – so lovely

1036 Welsh rarebit and toast with the boys, Samantha and Annabelle

1037 And more toast, catching up with Talia

1038 A Sunday of bunking in our pj’s

1039 ‘If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.’ – Sir Ken Robinson

1040 Getting angry over poor service and apathy, and taking it to God

1041 Getting scared about putting down big-house roots, and taking it to God

1042 Remembering my roots are in God’s plans for us and he will root and uproot in perfect love, wisdom and power
