Thankful....... Simply Thankful!

At this moment, I find myself just sitting on the sofa.

Just sitting & stealing a few minutes in stillness.

I would say quiet........

But it's not quiet around here at all.

There is a darling little boy singing & yelling at the top of his lungs while he catapults all the toy balls he has from one end of the house to the other.


Yet in this loudness, I find stillness.

{there hasn't been very much of that around here lately}

And in this stillness, I find thankfulness.

And while I am thankful for so many things, these are TOPS in this moment...............

Numba One - My sweet husband.  I truly love this man to pieces!  He supports & encourages me.  He can be ridiculous & hilarious, & I love living life with him!

Numba Two - My baby boy.  He is a dream come true.  A hope fulfilled.  And sometimes I just look at him & cry!!!  I {still} can't believe how wonderfully God brought us together..... through our brokenness........ to this place of joy & love & happiness.

Numba Three - Forgiveness.  Lately, I've had such a hard time finding a consistent schedule for prayer & Bible study.  Although I beat myself up about it, it never fails that when I come to the Word, the Lord meets me there with such encouragement & love & hope.  What a kindness I find!

Numba Four - That some day, some way, some place, some time............ there is another baby {or 2 or 3} of ours waiting for us to come get them & bring them home.

I am oh so thankful for this moment of fading stillness.............


The little boy has now progressed to putting his toy balls beside me.

He's edging into my stillness.

Gotta run!

Thankful for the stillness.

Thankful for the running.
