1000 Gifts :: Multitudes on Mondays – Catching UpPosted: March 4, 2013
I didn’t write my 1000 gifts last Monday, although I had been writing them down and tweeting them during the week. Last week I didn’t even manage to write most of them down.
If I don’t write, I normally manage to at least keep up with my link-up days. Mondays and Fridays. Last week I didn’t. I guess it was just one of those weeks – and that’s ok, it’s ok to have those weeks.
Let’s get stuck in to this week though. What am I looking forward to?
#1 Family Dinner on Tuesday
#2 My roommates birthday on Friday.
#3 Alpha course starting.#4 Being more organized
#5 Having a tidy bedroom (but not the actual tidying part)
So my list of gifts this week… (some of which I’m having to write now, because I didn’t write in the week)1000 gifts #46-#66
A gift worn-out, new, made do:
My Body – worn out but healing.
Mercy – New each day, never ending.
Chips & Beans for dinner @ 11pm in bed.
3 gifts seen as reflections:
My sister – seen reflected in a glass door.
Sunshine – Seen reflected in a puddle.
Paved roads – seen reflected in my rear-view mirror.
3 ugly-beautiful gifts:
