I Am Thankful

I am thankful

for rain that is not sleet
for mud that is not covered in snow
for chill in the air that is not a freeze

I am thankful

for messes made by God-given blessings
for ornery laughter from a baby girl
for a cup of coffee that grows cold while I am distracted

I am thankful

for friends willing to speak a hard word
for a husband who doesn’t always spoil me
for children that know honesty in all its brutal truth

I am thankful

for the sweet in the bitter
for the silver in the clouds
for the good worked in all things

I am thankful

  1. What a wonderful place to call home…

    Strange how someone’s blog becomes part of our comfort.
    I thank you for being here.
    Your posts were missed while I was away.
    Hope you and your cute family are well, Erin. And the glasses are adorable.
