From my gratitude list this last week, the beautiful things I’ve noticed, moment by moment…
2310. The same girl accompanying him to a ham radio show.
2312. Reading the same book over and over because it’s his favorite.
2313. Hearing the squeak of the backyard swing.
2314. Just a small spot of quiet on a Sunday afternoon.
2316. Date nights. The almost full moon with the city lights.
2318. Leg hugs. (counting that one again and again.)
2319. New hair cuts.
2321. My brother’s updates from the road he was traveling for work. Following him for a geography lesson as we did in Automobiles and Airplanes.
2322. The colors of a solar system model.
2323. Sweeping, sweeping, sweeping and sweeping again – because it means they are all enjoying the sunshine and shaking off some of the outside – inside.
2324. Encouraging friends – those I can hug and those in the blogosphere I wish I could hug!
2325. This is a biggie – Hodgepodgedad and how he does the grocery shopping.
2327. Sitting next to eldest boy in big church.
2328. This, that the pastor read, that brought applause from everyone.
2329. The parenting challenges. Without them, would we really get on our knees as much?
Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it – because it does. Give yourselves to the gifts God gives you. Most of all, try to proclaim his truth. 1 Corinthians 14:1 The Message
