Gratitude is overwhelming me today.
I don’t know why it’s today. There’s nothing special about today but I’m finding myself just thankful to God in my mind over and over. Recently, I redid our travel/map wall. After several transitions, it’s finally done. I’ve rigged it to display our family photo albums from years past.
That is what makes me the most happy about it because we can see them every day and they are not on a shelf. Nights like last night make me thankful … no game, no meetings, no place to be. We had a relaxing dinner. The boys had enough time to get all their homework done and their few chores. We had time to watch a little tv together. We actually sat on the couch and watched an old episode of Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman. One of my sons curled up beside me and threw his leg over me and we just sat.
Making photobooks helps me remember the good times.
Those moments don’t happen very often anymore so when they do, I’m so keenly aware and thankful. He’s just shy of 40 pounds less than me now so he takes up almost as much space as I do! My other son is really enjoying orchestra and starts Cotillion on Monday. Here’s our map wall now…
