It’s Been Too Long

How is it you just know? When schedules get crazy, kids are noisy, and my world spins, I have to readjust my thinking. Stepping out of the reality of the moment and seeing the truth of eternity means that I choose to be thankful for today and what God has done.

I am thankful for boxes of tissues for the many runny noses in my home.

I am thankful for a dishwasher that cleans the piles of dishes used each day.

I am thankful for an extra gate to put upstairs so that my toddler will be safe if he climbs out of his bed at night.

I am thankful for the quiet of the morning before the little ones get up to greet the day.

I am thankful for children's Bibles that capture my babies' attention.

I am thankful for weight gain . . . for my baby.

I am thankful for my messy home.

I am thankful for snow days even though I have not accomplished much.

I am thankful for children who are confident in the kitchen.

I am thankful for children who enjoy playing together.

I always enjoy reading your thankfulness posts, Sandy. They remind me of how much I have to be thankful for too. :)
