30 Days of Thankful--Day 20--The Little Things

And today I'm thankful for...
Kids running in the first frost of the year. We need
to get out more.
Crunchy grass--you know, the first frost that covers the ground in sparkly sunshine and kids who want to run in it.

The prize in the Cracker Jack box--it usually stinks, so the kids don't fight over it. (For very long.)

The fact that my kids still think the biggest treat ever is "going to the gas station" after school once a week for a snack.
A dog that is fully potty trained and doesn't shed.

Funny kids. (Sometimes on purpose, mostly on accident.)

My mother, who always unloads the dishwasher.

Elise, who always loads it. (Sometimes)


A husband who, even though I'm 'healthy girl', always brings me chocolate covered almonds, Just Because.

Being able to walk to church.

Not having to wear a skirt to that church.

Being able to take a nap on Sunday afternoons.

Sometimes, it's just about the little things...
