As another weekend and another month come to a close,
I'm excited for a few reflections and another Thanksliving with Leslie at Top of the Page. (I am also super excited for Christmas music and movies on the horizon, but I will save that for another post.)
At this time of the year, I am thankful for the beauty and brilliance of fall. My girls are thankful for the mountains of leaves that grace our space.
Personally, I am more thankful for the rich colors. I am thankful for this lovely, peaceful road to our home. We have taken many walks up and down this drive through all the seasons. I have strolled newborn girlies up this drive and watched as they learned to walk up it. Now they race.
On a side note, I am not so thankful for these little guys...well, at least not for the ones that settle right in my path and try to bring me down. I knew it was coming, and I seriously almost hit the ground the other day after slipping on these bad boys. But, thankfully, my elbow caught the side of my truck, and I managed to stay on my feet...sort of...gracefulness is not one of my strengths.
I am really thankful that this little toothie decided to quit hanging out, and this brave girlie finally pulled it herself. Her second baby tooth gone...she is officially growing up way too fast.
I am deeply thankful for every priceless second with my loved ones. Especially my Pappy who's been sick and is fighting hard. I LOVE how he smiles when he sees the little ones. He lights up, and my heart rejoices.
I mean, does it get much better than that? A little supergirl dressed in pink was there to save the day and bring happiness to all those around her. And to collect apples in her Halloween bucket from the kind nurses.
flew rode along with mom and dad to a Trunk or Treat where she and batgirl scored all kinds of sugary goodness. I am so grateful for our church family and times of fellowship such as these. I am also thankful for my amazing husband, his love, and his presence in our lives.
(Secretly, I am thankful for toothbrushes and deep cabinets to hide some of this candy.)
Honestly, though, they have had so much candy already. Dum Dums appear to be their treat of choice. I am thankful for my own Lollipop Guild. ;)
I'm thankful for these sticky smiles. And big pink bows on cute little girls.
I am especially thankful for (somewhat) quiet evenings cozied up at home and coloring special dresses for tiny paper dolls with my big girl.
I am also thankful for my Sunday school class and beloved church family, lunch with my parents (and a Daddy who still pays my way), a Starbucks run with my mom, a munchkin who still takes afternoon naps, and, at this very moment, the mountains of laundry that are slowly dwindling, my Keurig, and apple butter cinnamon rolls with caramel frosting (totally happening now). God is so wonderfully great, and I am so completely undeserving.
"Let my mouth be filled with Your praise
And with Your glory all the day."
~ Psalm 71:8
I hope you've had a wonderful month filled with many blessings! :)
