Friday came slowly, relieving the insanity of beleaguered days. The evening finally quieted from the din of whines, cries, and occasional bellows.

Those above the age of seven are settling in with books, computers, games, and a snack. Music is playing. Coffee and tea are brewing.

I am thankful –

  • For fresh apple walnut bread
  • For a hot frothy latte
  • Quiet bedtimes
  • Good friendships for my children
  • Clean sheets
  • Beautiful art
  • Bright yellow leaves dripping off branches
  • Brisk walks
  • Chubby fingers and drooling smiles
  • Old books, new books, e-books, kids’ books

I look forward to the weekend: soccer games, sunshine, a hot dog roast, and coffee with friends. Thank you, Lord, for a new perspective.
