I am having a “grateful” night.  Have you been blessed with those?  They are fantastic.  I love them.  I would likely have more of them if I chose to look their way. 

Amid the chaos that is our little life on the farm, with all the unfinished projects that I often desperately wish were completed, I sit here in awe of all that we have, all that we are gifted with and all that we rarely recognize as a gift.  

So that I don’t forget … I am …

  • Grateful for that little girl fighting her nights sleep.  Her sleepy eyes that tell this Mama that it is only minutes away.
  • Grateful for that little boy finally asleep after a silly fly continued to wake him up.  The Mama took care of the fly and he hasn’t stirred since. 
  • Grateful for the stacks of towels freshly washed and dried … even the forever stained kitchen towels that I use for spills. 
  • Grateful for family and friends that have passed through our less than clean farm-house door this summer, and shared a meal. 
  • Grateful for a husbands unconditional love.
  • Grateful for a garden brimming with produce.
  • Grateful for air conditioning on a hot summers day.
  • Grateful for pudgy fingers wrapped around mine during a feeding.
  • Grateful for the piles of craft supplies that spill from their cupboards because there is simply just too much.
  • Grateful for full freezers.
  • Grateful for a favorite song on the radio when you have a moment to enjoy it.
  • Grateful for tan little feet that stick out of the stroller as we feed chickens and collect the daily mail.
  • Grateful for employment.
  • Grateful for fun garage sale finds.
  • Grateful for building towers with blocks, only to have them tumble-down with the hands of our girl.
  • Grateful for sweet babies asleep with their little butts high in the air.
  • Grateful for the gift of life … it is truly a beautiful thing.
