“Thankful people are refreshing, life-giving springs, while unthankful people pull others down with them into the stagnant pools of their selfish, demanding, miserable ways.”

Not a hard, uninviting throne; but a big, soft, cushy one!
A Husband who loves to splash and play in the lake with his daughter.
have fun whipping down her slippery slide, belly first.
over and over.
filled to the brim with innocent hopes and dreams.
remembering the strong arms, and sweaty brow it took to prepare it.
Catching a glimpse of a tender moment between my son and his Grandpa.
on a lazy, Saturday morning.
being excited about the simple things;
airplanes flying overhead and baby birdies pecking at the ground.
now that I am a Mom.
because it meant he worked hard to provide for our family.
evoked by a familiar fragrance.
as a family around the dining room table.
to pray at a restaurant;
and not being ashamed.
My little man falling asleep, sitting up.
holding that warm towel against my cheek for some extra coziness.
looking up with eyes squinted shut,
letting the water wash the tiredness from my eyes.
at just the right moment,
to lift my spirits.
eyes welling up with thankful tears.
not grateful for the sickness,
but the extra cuddle time rocking my little boy to sleep.
as he loses the fight to keep them open,
his body becomes limp and heavy.
Ever so often I get another gift~
a little smile peaking up at me behind his suckling Nuk.
