Looking back on the past couple months…
reflecting on the summer to autumn change of color
I can't help but stop
and Give THANKS
it IS the "thankful" month after all..
A time of reflection and
a time of thanks giving...
One thing that I am thankful for..
Spending time with people we LOVE
that LOVE us
and want to spend time with us..
thankful for friends who take you on boat rides
and are ok letting your three year old
feel like he's driving…
and are ok when you believe it..
and feel anxiety..
and laugh with you over it
thankful for friends who have an open hand and are SO generous
thankful for smiling young faces
that make you SO look forward to watching
THEIR lives unfold..
because they are already SUCH terrific people
thankful for squishy smily faces
for RED, a young pupil
eager to learn
here in our home/school

and creative young people
thankful for every single smile
bright eyed smile..
you don't know what you are missing
till you are blessed with such a smile..
thankful for cousins
thankful for adventures!
because to the unobserving eye
one would THINK these children are playing on my trailer
