Special Notice: 25 Gifts

I have just visited the blog of another woman that is also reading Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts book. A Real Housewife in Georgia

In her post, she challenges us to make a list of 25 of the little things that we are thankful for. So, I'm playing along. :)

Here are my twenty-five gifts, though some are not so little in the scheme of things to me:

1. My husband's eyes.
2. The laughter of my children.
3. Beautiful weather.
4. Cardinals.
5. The cats, both old and young.
6. Purple flowers on trees.
7. The power of red.
8. Long country roads.
9. Roller-skates.
10. Junior colleges.
11. My daughter-in-law-to-be.
12. Reconciliation.
13. Family history finds.
14. Transportation being provided via miracles.
15. Being brought back from the brink of death.
16. Curly eyelashes.
17. Old Spice and Brut.
18. New opportunities.
19. Old friends.
20. Churches that speak the truth.
21. Mrs. Pennington.
22. Miss Elrod.
23. Promises kept.
24. Love words whispered.
25. Last, but certainly not least, the gift of Our Savior and eternal life.

Please make and share a link to your list of 25 Gifts post here. I'd love to see it!
