I often experience times where I am calm inside and able watch the things going around around me with a sense of wonder and thankfulness. I am so thankful for those times and I love looking back on them afterwards too. It helps ground me when the days are not so full of sunshine. This past weekend was one of those times. It was just an ordinary Monday that we spent in a park barbecuing chicken. And I am thankful we did.
I am thankful for little crab apple trees with branches low enough for children to climb and look around at the world from a new perspective.
I am thankful for sweet little hands to help us in our daily tasks. I am thankful for the way they make everything seem new and exciting - even if it's only heating up charcoal.
I am thankful that we had such delicious food to full our bellies, and lots of scope for our eyes to feast on while eating.
And I am especially thankful that spending a day in the fresh air makes kids sleep so well at night. :o)
