7. Day 22:  WE Are Worth Celebrating

I am loving how Holy Spirit is speaking to my heart with these lists of “100 Reasons Why”.  I was simply writing a card to go into a goodie bag to give my daughter and her fiance` (I love saying this;) to take on a cross country trip they were making.  The list just spilled out my delight, my tender love and the joy I shared in their beginning adventure.  I love how honest the Holy Spirit is here.
