Giving Thanks

Truly, truly, I have so much to be thankful for.

Just one of the things I'm giving thanks for today is our morning family walk.

We bundled up the boys and strolled our quiet neighborhood streets. The sky was bright blue. The air was perfectly crisp. And I don't think my kidlets could be any cuter!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
-Psalm 107:1

Passing Moments

Here are a few things I delighted in on today's morning walk:

Watching my four-month-old stare up at the clear blue sky, then succumb to sleepy eyes and drift off to sleep.

Saying "Good Morning" to a stranger and seeing him smile.

Listening to my (almost) two-year-old giggle with glee at the men in the trees trimming branches.

Feeling the warm sun on my back and the crisp air on my cheek.

Overhearing a conversation between two gentlemen in their late seventies that went something like this:
You keep up the good work.
Yes, you, too.
Hey, are you still playing that horn?
Hell yeah!
Life is made up of moments. Don't let joy in the small things pass you by.
