living in the everday

I posted a week or so ago about some books I wanted to read on vacation
I haven't finished it yet, but I couldn't resist posting on 1,000 gifts.
It's a book that really will change your life. 

because it's so easy to get bogged down in the everyday.
whether the days are crazy, or quiet.
if the days are rich, or poor
if the seasons are hot or cold.
if we are overwhelmed or underwhelmed
if we are exhausted, or excited.

there are gifts.
presents from a savior
that we miss.
one of my favorite quotes from the book refelcts on naming the gifts we are given
"In naming that which is right before me, that which I'd otherwise miss, the invisible becomes visible"

So I am posting a few of my gifts. These gifts that are too precious--love gifts from a Savior. and I don't want to miss them.

early morning cuddles
reading on the beach
sounds of waves crashing
inlaws that are a second set of parents
slow mornings in pjs and coffee
bowls of lemons
compliments at work
I hope you see today some of the gifts, big and small.
