{Gratitude Lately}

Thursday, September 25, 2014


Lately I've been thankful for flannel shirts and the changing of seasons.


For afternoon donuts and morning coffee.



For lap babes and wrist rolls.


For winter jam enjoyed at summer's end.


For 16 lb packages that still fit here.


For Sunday afternoon drawing lessons.


For homemade salsa and growing our own food.



For shared fried pickles across the river. 


And for daily hugs with stroller buddies.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Thursday, brave ones.
What have you been thankful for lately?

I positively adore that line, "Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough."
Amen! Here here!

Lately I've been grateful for homemade soups that warm my soul on rainy days, for a group of new friends who welcomed me with open arms, for coffee dates with old friends and family time.

For husbands who steal the puppy from her kennel to come snuggle at night
For fall planted perennials we pray will survive the Minnesota winter
For a fridge drawer filled with no less than 9 kinds of cheese
For big sisters that send sweet text messages first thing in the morning
For the stunning fall leaves we collected on our family walk to display in the kitchen

Hope you didn't enjoy those changing seasons too much since it'll be 85 this weekend!

For surprise phone calls that end in "judging by the MRI and his milestones; your baby does not have cerebral palsy."
And for verses like "if God is for us, who can be against us." That give me encouragement.
Have a great weekend!
