i am grateful

19 Dec

for many things.  loads of big things like family and friends and health and happiness, electricity and modern plumbing etc.  i decided to look for small things i am grateful for.

i am grateful for:

hugs even when it means oatmeal smears on my shoulders

bright eyes and big smiles when i walk in the door each morning

little requests for me to read the same book “just one more time”

little hands that fit just perfectly in mine

sleep giggles

fresh haircuts on handsome boys

shared secrets

pretty little manners….please and thank you and “me me”

dinner time prayers

soft squishy tummies (that aren’t mine)

hot “totoa”
