3 Gifts: Fixed, Folded and Freckled

Earlier in the year, I read about the 1000 Gifts photo challenge. Basically, each day there is a prompt to snap three photos of a certain type of "gift" or journal about those gifts. Although I think it's a phenomenal idea, I didn't commit to the project because I was already doing Project 365 {+1} and we all know that I haven't even been blogging about that.....
Anyway.
Today I was in desperate need of a fresh perspective and journaling about these ordinary gifts has brought me from a place of discouragement to a place where I'd like to stay a long while: It's called "thankful".

A Gift: Fixed
{My children wash the deck and wash chairs to help "fix" all of the messes. To them, it's all fun and games. The soap suds surround her small toes and that is my favorite.}

A Gift: Folded
{Large stacks of maternity clothes that I've been sorting through. Most of these are from my sister or a dear friend. Just looking at them has made me feel a bit cow'ish but still, they are a gift.}

A Gift: Freckled
{Hello Freckles...I'm so glad that more of you pop out each day!}
