  1. Beautiful list! I'm hoping to start my list to 1000 soon.

  2. Wow, all that in one day!! What I love most about this list is that you know it all comes from Christ, through Him and because of Him.

  3. Beautiful, Crystal. I'm also so happy that the days are starting earlier and ending later. Wonderful to hear all that you have to be thankful for at work.

    (We make our own yogurt, too! Every week.)
