Weekend Wanderings...

A pause in time for all of us to.....just be.
And so, as it all winds down...and as a new week is upon us, I am thankful for:

~ Friends who love me.
~ A husband who is raw and real...and a man who loves us well.
~ Snow that came....and that just as quickly left.
~ Little boy wellie boots...and mud on my floor.
~ Frogs' eggs taking up residence in the big boys' bedroom.
~ Eggs from my girls...with a double yolker thrown in for good measure.
~ Peepers out my window at night....nature's lullaby.
~ Homemade bread...and sticky fingered Littles.
~ 50+ gallons of sap boiling down, down, down....
~ Maple syrup treasures...with some left over to store on my shelves.
~ Chickies roaming free.
~ Lunch dates with girlfriends.
~ Catching up from not seeing each other for far too long.
~ London's kicking and moving.
~ The anticipation and the countdown...
~ Saturday morning big breakfasts.
~ P.j. days at home.
~ Family movies...
~ and family afternoon naptimes.
~ Me beside him, and him beside me.
~ Cribbage crushfests...and 200+ games played.
~ Homemade chai...and little boy sip stealers.
~ The pitter patter of little feet.
~ And bed-headed boys who crawl under the covers.
~ Their love for the outside.
~ And the pond next door.
~ Snow explorations.
~ And green grass once again.
~ Songs that bring tears.
~ Conversations that heal.
~ Liquid gold that keeps boiling.
~ These crazy fast years.
~ Cereal for supper.
~ New mercies each morning.
~ And the promise of Spring.
 ~ Transfer station (Aka "the dump") finds!
~ Loved ones who "walk alongside."
~ Library books by cozy fires.
~ Little boy imaginations.

~ Week-end sleepovers in homemade forts.
~ School winding down...
~ Slow days...and days of madness.
~ A fridge full of groceries.
~ A Father who cares about the details...

"He inhabits the praise of His people...."
Lord, for these small things....and for their "great"ness as well....I thank you.
