Seeing through thanksgiving.

Remembering to give thanks, I take a deep breath as I reread and type my list for the week.  I have been down and exhausted and today (Sunday) I just want to hide in a hole somewhere and mope.  I look at all of this, my thank offerings for the week.  My heart changes at this moment, this remembering, this seeing again what God has done.  He continues to pour out grace upon grace.  Oh for the eyes to see in each moment.

# 398 would have to be my favorite, although they were all wonderful! Nothing like friends who know and understand and do the right thing when you need it. After all, that's what friends are for, right??? And the dirty feet? Priceless!
