5 Minutes of Joy: Helicopter
On Mondays, I take five minutes to write the things that I am thankful for. I say 5 minutes, but maybe that’s just an ideal. (It’s easily can add a few hours to fix all of my typos and round-up pictures!) I make an effort to do this daily, but on Mondays I share! This project has been a HUGE blessing to me! I’m not sure that there’s a better way to start the week! So without further ado, these are gifts that bring me joy:
This summer that I feel pressing in on me… – that I GET to have a summer with my kids. (Thinking of the parents that know their children’s days are limited, brain cancer, kidney disease…How easily I forget that tomorrow doesn’t come, sometimes.)
Every day is a GIFT.
Sleepy little faces.
Sheet wrinkles on their skin.
Hubs building a helicopter for B
B’s whole body exuding joy…fingers reaching, arms swinging…just to touch propellers for a split second.
M delighting in helping…that I finally have a kid that can buckle herself in!
M (4 years old) crying…can’t shift gears…praying and crying with her. – That God’s grace is big enough for both of us!
Words that heal
Words that lift up
That HE is greater than pain…that he uses pain
The luxury of blow-dried hair
Stick on earrings
Family trip to Target
Tendrils of cantaloupe…climbing, reaching…
Time to spend on US
Time alone in the sun! (It’s been years…why am I so bad at giving myself a break? Finally doing better!)
What are you thankful for today?
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever. -1 Chronicles 16:34
