It led me to feeling a deep sense of gratitude for what I consider the little things...
It's funny how when you start counting your blessings they multiply quickly...
Family, photos of precious moments, a multitude of books
An excess of toys, a little girl's imagination, a beloved blanket from a beloved friend
A beginning of an art gallery for the kids, crayons, markers, paint, the ability to create
A spot in Our Master Bedroom, the love that resides there, a soft warm bed
Pride to be southern, a sense of humor, a running sink with clean water
My loves: their health, that they are safe and learning and growing and becoming who they are meant to become
A photo of my Dad as a child, the time I had with my Dad, my learned love of reading and writing
My totally unfinished bench, the sunlight pouring in, my paints and brushes, the time I carve out to make something for my home
Crockpot full of white bean chicken chili, food for my family, health and sustenance entering our bodies to nourish us, a time where we can all sit together
A child's bike, a warm day with fresh air, his desire to ride freely, his laughter and pursuit of feeling the wind in his hair
A little space my husband made me to hang things I love, a husband who supports me, a husband who loves me and gets me
A chance to read new books, a chance to learn new things, literacy in a world where 1 billion people can't read at all
Next time you are wanting more
(which is exactly what I was doing)
count your blessings.
Remember to be content with what you have
It will bring you back to the present moment.
Happy Wednesday Friends! ;)
