    [By the way, I'm not really "Anonymous".
    It's just the only category on the menu
    that works for me.]

  2. Those are all such wonderful gifts! They come together to create a very nice reflection of your life. :)

  3. Except for #79 (It would be Mom's nut horns instead)this list could be mine. I love how you expressed my thanks for the many simple but oh so wonderful things God has given you and I!
