Paul and I drove two cars to church this morning, since I was singing and had to get there early. As I was coming home with Elias dozing in the backseat, I had a few minutes to compose my gratitudes list for the day. I know I’ve talked about it on here and I thought it might be fun to share an entry.
This morning, I was grateful:
- That I did NOT hit a deer on my way in to church on the snowy, predawn roads. We missed each other by inches.
- That the sun is shining.
- That Paul indulged me and stood outside in the cold to fill up my car because I was feeling too wimpy to do it myself.
When Paul and Levi got home, I got to add to the list. They stopped and picked up flowers for me to cheer me up. (It’s been a long week. And I seem to have gotten up on the wrong side of bed this morning.)
It is delightful to receive flowers from a little boy who helped pick them out. He couldn’t have been prouder of himself if he’d built a spaceship.
They asked if I like the flowers, and I do. But I like who they came from even more.
For a cold and snowy one in January, I guess it’s not such a bad day.
