One Thousand Gifts

8. Making dinner together, and then cleaning up together after it's finished.

9. The gracious way Corey accepted a hard decision that wasn't made in his favor, and then admitted that he was sad and disappointed about it.

10. Neal is always flexible; he will go out of his way to run a simple errand after working all day, without complaining. If I call him after he's done with one more thing I forgot, he will graciously turn around and go back. No questions. No grumblings.

11.Warm sunny weather, and a chance to work out in the garden after school.

12. Running into friends at the supermarket. It makes doing a not-so-pleasant chore that much better. 

13. Warm and yummy oatmeal muffins and coffee on a grey and dreary morning.

14.That he has saved Every. Single. Thing. they have ever given him, from unidentifiable craft projects, to scribbled pictures from when they were 2. If it says "To Dad" or they handed it to him and said, "This is for you", he has it saved in a box.
