September Begins

I cannot believe it is September already!
And I am still catching up on Ann's listed daily dares. Here are a few more:

3 gifts in what you are reading:
~Joy in reading a beloved childhood book (little women).
~Rest as I read.
~Knowledge about pregnancy and birth.

3 gifts empty:
~Bowl that had my cream of wheat in it.
~Diaper covers washed and ready for use.
~Muffin tins with the muffins popped out of them.

3 gifts that made you really smile:
~Silly little girl.
~Very distinct belly kick when I lay down to give myself my shot.
~Husband being silly late at night.

A gift at 8: awakening from a good night's rest (after a not so great sleep the night before).
A gift at 12: lunch with my girlfriend and her little ones.
A gift at 2: baby clothes lent to me. Oh the cuteness! Those tiny tights kill me!

3 gifts painted:
~Unique artwork on my walls.
~Art for baby girl's room (prints of a friend's paintings).
~ painted finger and toe nails (yes, I can still do it! :) )

3 gifts full:
~Cup full of a fruit smoothie: healthy and delicious!
~Heart full of joy and anticipation for our little girl.
~Mug full of coffee as I had a mommy chat with a friend.

3 gifts smelled:
~Left over frangrance of the rice cooked the night before.
~The comforting smell of a cup of tea.
~Clothes fresh off the line.

A gift unexpected: to be totally sucked in to making a baby quilt.

A gift unwanted: a deeper look at my heart.

A gift unlikely: To enjoy a day at home without the internet and my computer.

3 gifts from His Word:
 ~ "'And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.'" ~Mark 11:25

  ~"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." ~Mark 13:31

~ "...Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man." Ecclesiates 12:13
