Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

End of year thanks

We have intentionally slowed down so over the last few weeks, and I have eliminated a lot of "media" time, that I haven't kept up very well with posting. I started my weekly list of thanks post a couple of weeks ago and then didn't take the time to finish it. Probably was interrupted to play Legos, American Girls dolls, puzzles or Wii games:)
Many of our evenings have been spent as a family in front of the fire reading stories, listening to music, doing puzzles and playing. And they have ended like this....

On Daddy's lap sound asleep. What sweet, sweet memories we have been blessed with.

Quiet evenings at home
Candlelit service with my precious family
Anastacia's first communion and her understanding of it
Shared communion with my family
Our church family
Watching my two nephews love on each other
Sweet cousin love
Reading nightly of the coming of Jesus
Time in front of the fire with Amos
His overwhelming love, grace, and mercy with me
Eyes lit up on Christmas morning
Sharing the reading of your blessings in our son's name
Our church family
Our silly, sweet dog
