When they humour me and my silly ideas…
Day 12: I am grateful for cuddle time! I am grateful that my munchkins let me hug and kiss on them until they just can’t stand it. I am grateful that when I don’t feel well, I can curl up on the couch and be fed magic medicine and have my temperature taken with fairy wands and be served orange juice by little girls wearing crowns. I am grateful for nose-to-nose smooches and bear hugs.
(And I am grateful for the helpful hubby who snapped this picture for me today.)
Day 11: I am grateful for sunrise and sunset. I am grateful that every day God breaks out his paintbrush and creates something new and beautiful for us to see Him in. I am grateful for the daily reminders that there is always beauty to be found and that each day is a new creation and a new opportunity to do God’s will.
Day 9: I am grateful for technology. I am grateful for all of the gadgets and gizmos that I have come to rely on for communication, organization, and memory-keeping. I am grateful for wireless Internet connections, digital cameras, 3TB hard drives, and high-definition monitors. I am grateful that there are brilliant people out there who make these things and that I am blessed enough to own so many of them.
Day 8: I am grateful for… Thursday nights. I am grateful that I get to spend time with my incredibly talented brother on a regular basis. I am grateful that I have been able to watch him grow from a little boy who could build an exact replica of the Titanic out of Legos from memory to a man who is constantly seeking to grow and know God better. I am grateful that my girls want to wait up on these nights just so Uncle Ryan can read them a story.
