One thing I'm learning is that on the grumpy days, I need to keep my list more than ever. I need it, I need it.
Here are some from the family's continuing list.
my mom and dad and grandparents who went home to see their dogs (this was written in Lucy's special script and translated by me)
fresh bread and butter
very helpful and fun son/mom time
popcorn and hot chocolate
cheese (are you beginning to sense the food theme? these come from one son in particular.)
Theo so he will get better (Lucy)
musical birthday cards! They give hours of fun!
a fresh gallon of milk in the fridge when you think you're out
trees and oxygen and carbon dioxide
Memaw (that's the children's great-grandmother)
brothers playing football happily
unfolded laundry because it means we have plenty of clothes to wear!
that God doesn't leave us like we are.
"We're not all that we should be, but we're so much better than we used to be." Our pastor says this all the time. He is at work, changing us.
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
