Beginning the Count...

I've wanted to do this for a while... start a list of one thousand gifts that God has blessed me with. Breanne and I decided to do it together- keep each other accountable. I made us matching books and viola! We had a project! I started tonight and my list keeps on growing.
  1. The Redeeming Grace of Jesus Christ
  2. Parents teaching us to trust the Lord
  3. All eight of my brothers and sisters
  4. The knowledge that 3 of them are safe in the arms of Jesus forever
  5. A community that is so supportive of homeschooling
  6.  My beloved HPA
  7. The first weekend of Fiddler shows going well- To God be the Glory!
  8. Twin girls sitting on my floor strumming away at the guitars and singing their little hearts out
  9. The best friends in the entire world
  10. Three friends praying with me at different times on Saturday- Katherine, Katie and Andy
  11. Hannah calling up the stairs "Yinds! Where are you?"
  12. My little yellow camera, whose lens captures memories never worth forgetting
  13. Teachers who understand the craziness of show week and extend grace- and deadlines.
  14. Kari Jobe's "Steady My Heart" in moments when my heart needs steadying
  15. Writing gifts with my "----------- Lawncare" pen
  16. A 15 minute conversation with John about his growing business
  17. A {really} great score on my narrative paper returned today
{Will it be every Monday I share here? I don't know. I'm hoping it keeps me accountable, but I'm holding myself to a standard of grace, not perfection.}

Maybe I missed it earlier, but what is HPA?
