thankful

Today, I am thankful for the things that aren't always obvious.

Thank you, God, for....
*children that have colds and fevers. But healthy and strong and have access to medicine.
*feeling such a burden on my heart to pray and hope for our friends.
*feeling physically worn out at the end of each day...because I've been so busy doing what I love.
*for the freezing wind because it reminds me that we've been given such an amazing place to call home.
*for the stuff of life that is too much to walk through....because the beauty of a community of imperfect people coming together and loving like we should is miraculous.
*for a baby that keeps me up during the night....because I get to hold her. I will never take this for granted.
*for the laundry I am never caught up on and the house that is downright disgusting. We have clothes to keep us warm and space to let things go!

Good morning to my dear, dear daughter. Your cup is full to running over as you are choosing thankfulness. You continue to "live your life like a hardwood floor!" what a lovely lesson learned from 'Providence!' Love you.

ps- the character is my attempt to draw like Griffin- my arms are stretched wide to hug you. :)

Hey Amy, I found your blog and wanted to comment on this beautiful post. I am thankful for so many of the same things and it's a great reminder to stop and realize how blessed we are. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

What lovely thoughts. I agree. There is much to be thankful for - even in the things that can drive us crazy ;). Love you!

Amen.

Well that was a tear-jerker. I'm thankful for an amazing wife to walk through this insanity with. I love you endlessly.
