Multitude Monday 281-290

281. releasing another several pounds of clutter

282. children who beg for more biscuits, some with sausage gravy, some with butter and jelly, some with butter and honey, some with peanut butter, some with just butter, all made with love and more helping hands

283. a week with more sunny days than overcast days

284. a good night's sleep for my husband and I, on the same night...

285. respiratory crud finally easing up again and making it through this round with only 1 ER visit and no hospitalizations for any asthmatics- I never thought I would be in a place to need to say that I'm thankful for months in a row without a hospital stay, but after the last 5 yrs, ever since our 5 yr old Hope was hospitalized with RSV at 6 weeks old, and the many hospitalizations that Grace and Hope have endured... now I'm in that place, and I'm thankful for every month without a hospital visit...

286. a husband who keeps encouraging me

287. personal character pruning, it hurts to go through, but I trust and love the Gardener

288. time spent holding a sister's new baby

289. a sister and brother-in-law buying their first home, not too far away, bringing the rest of my immediate family close together again (us, my parents, and now both of my sisters and their husbands, and of course their precious children, live within about 10 miles of each other!)

290. the urge to take down the snowflake decorations and start creating some springtime atmosphere in our home!

Springtime is almost here! YAY!
I thought of you last night, my son has croup, and I thought about how hard it must be to have breathing issues be a repetitive thing. HORRAY for a hospital free month

Ali,
#286 and #287...wow!
It is indeed a gift when the Gardner prunes us and clips off all those dead branches but oh, my does it pain! To know that He does it out of the abundance of His love is amazing.
And, an encouraging husband...a treasure to hang on to forever!
Blessings to you

Love your new blog.

I can't wait for spring!! I love days filled with sunshine but especially weeks when there are more sunny days than cloudy days.
