Thanks: Appreciative, Satisfied, Content.

This morning we were up early; there was a dense fog, and the overcast haze is teasing us again with the promise of afternoon thunderstorms.  The kids have been busy playing with puzzles and kitchen toys and I am savoring a morning of dawdling laziness.  What are you thankful for this week?  Here are a few great thoughts from Ann Voskamp today!

"On every level of life, from housework to heights of prayer, in all judgement and effort to get things done, hurry and impatience are sure marks of the amateur."
— Ann Voskamp

"Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I've ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing.... Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away." 
 Ann Voskamp 

These are a few things that I am thankful for this week: 

  • Hearing "Cannon-BOMB!!" repeatedly while the kids jump into the pool.
  • The simple enjoyment of a yellow sucker from the counter at the bank.
  • Great big new teeth trying to squeeze inside a small mouth.
  • Flannel pajama pants until noon.
  • Maddy dipping her finger into the cinnamon and sugar mix left on her plate when the toast is all gone.
  • When my kids hold hands on their own.
