I've been cooped up in my house with my family (with the exception of the few hours we escaped for church today). We've relaxed, caught up on laundry, enjoyed time together. I cooked a delicious and time-consuming meal, I made salsa for my lerve, and I allowed snacks every time they were requested. We've read stories, I've been given pictures, and I had a picnic with pretend food.
My girls haven't complained about being bored once.
AND, we don't have school tomorrow.
Ann reminds us to count our gifts every day. I need to remind myself that my life and the little insignificant things that happen every day are my joy--not the experiences that I try to create.
I'm surrounded by joy--and when I stop to take notice--I recognize how incredibly blessed I am.
To be continued. . .
