Simple Things...

In the stillness of our quiet home this afternoon, I took stock. While listening to the gentle rain hitting the living room window, I snuggled under a cozy blanket, breathed in the smell of a clean house, and savoured the silence that comes as a energy-filled toddler naps. And I counted.

225. Beautifully knit blankets, full, soft and warm. 
226. The hum of a heater. 
227. Creativity in action. 
228. Christmas lists and plans. 
229. The sounds of praise in a variety of languages. 
230. African brothers & sisters dancing in worship. 
231. Tender moments and stolen kisses. 
232. Warm mugs of coffee on dreary, weary Monday mornings. 
233. A little monkey named Momo. 
234. The smell and softness of my daughter's skin after a bath. 
235. New fragrances and body mists. 
236. Tea party's with little princesses. 
237. Simple meals and full bellies.

What are you grateful for?
