Gratitude and Memories

 141.  the service, dedication, sacrifice, and honor of my husband, my father-in-law, and so many others in the military... some gave years, some gave parts of themselves, some gave their lives

142.  colored glass sparkling in the sunlight

143.  familiar smiles and laughter at the season's first farmers market

144.  ripening tomatoes

145.  the wheelchair that allows her more time out and about

146.  creating with a husband too treasured for words

147.  the day when swords are beaten into plowshares, the hope of unlearning the act of war

148.  a daughter's thoughtfulness, caring for me and nurturing the me I hope to be

149.  the memories of Daddy in the garden, on the road, working outside, eating bologna and cheese, telling again and again the favorite stories of his memories

150.  the places and people and things we've seen all over the world, the opportunities given in exchange for the years of service, that one of those ladies we met along the way prayed for me to know the Savior
