305. Being with family.

306. Fire pit and tiki torches and new chairs.

307. Nice surprises that squeeze my heart some.

308. Test results that are positive. Which means negative. Which means good news.

309. Laughing with each other.

310. The long summer sunlight in the evenings at camp.

Your post encouraged me to list down all the positive things that have happened in my life right now. My family is currently faced with a crisis and yet I refuse to give up knowing that there's a lot that I need to be thankful for.

Tracy, I never am. While many moms celebrate getting their kids out of their hair, I wish for a few more weeks with them.

Jane, I am glad it was encouraging. It's hard to be thankful in the midst of a crisis!
