Bachelorette, Masters, & Firsts {Multitude Monday #231-245}

For the 2nd week in a row, life has been a whirlwind, but in a good way.

My parents flew in from Haiti for a week...

My girlfriends and I partied celebrating another bride-to-be pal...

We picked strawberries as a family for the FIRST TIME. Can you believe it? Yeah, no strawberry fields in Haiti!....

My sister, after MUCH hard work, achieved & received her Masters degree...

My 22-year-old cousin's little girl's 1st birthday....and 1st taste of cake!

I think she liked it! ;)

Adding some more of my gifts this week....

Gratitude - a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation, as for gifts or favours;
the state of feeling grateful

I have joined The Gratitude Community -- a place to be inspired by others and what God is doing in their lives, a chance to share my own journey of gratitude, and an opportunity to REMEMBER to be grateful in ALL things. So on Mondays, I will add to my list of 1000 gifts of all the graces God has provided in my life. Would you consider joining me? Even if you don't blog, you can join the gratitude community by starting a gratitude journal, mentionning your gifts on Facebook, or sending e-mails to your friends. Let's work together to help in creating a more thankful, joyous world!!

How precious is this time with family which gets so much more meaningful when you don't see each other that often! Glad you had a good week.
Oh - and the pronunciation in SA would most likely be the same as in Dutch as SA comes from Dutch originally... (actually sth not to be so proud of, since it has to do with being the superiors, but there you go!)

@thecrazyrambler I bet you are right! I didn't catch that you were Dutch! I think I do remember that now from my first read through on your blog! Thanks for popping back over!
