The List that Never Ends: #251-260

It's been one of those weeks.... Because I'd been feeling a bit under the weather lately, I decided to do a hard-core-detox-type thing that basically eliminates all sugar, dairy, yeast, caffeine, starchy/carb-laden foods, and pretty much all fun and happiness from your diet. I'm sure I've been quite a pleasant person to be around lately (sorry, Josh!). In addition, Josh was sick with a cold, and my dog came down with a stomach virus (complete with explosive diarrhea) over the weekend. Oh yes, fun times were had by all.


I still have a lot for which to be thankful. So I'm continuing my list of 1000 gifts....because life is a gift, and because we're commanded to give thanks in all things. So...

Today, I am thanking God...

251. ...for the fact that I even have food options....and food, period.

252. ...for stevia, my lifeline right now.

253. ...for carpet shampooers.

254. ...for some mighty fine weather.

255. ...for my Mom, Mamaw, Mother-in-Law, and Grandmothers-in-Law. (Happy Mother's Day yesterday!)

256. ...that Harvey seems to be on the mend.

257. ...for herbs - the flavors, the medicinal qualities.

258. ...for fresh air.

259. ...for the color green.

260. ...for the smell of blooming wild roses.

Are you giving thanks today? Link up with me over at:


  1. Oh, Beth, you have had a rough time! Praying that all your food sacrifices will help your body to heal (and that your husband and doggy are better, too)! Love what you did with your photos :)

  2. I bet you are thankful for carpet cleaners! Good health and healing to you. Enjoyed your list. . . and your perspective.
