It's funny, I have noticed lately that a lot of people talk about what we "deserve". Like, "oh, you deserve so much better." That word has really stood out to me lately. What do we deserve, really? I don't believe that I deserve all of the wonderful things that I have. I believe that God has been gracious with me and has given me these things even though I don't deserve them-because he loves me despite the fact that I'm so undeserving. ( I would try to elaborate but I think I'm still processing it all!)
I think it is that fact that has overwhelmed me and made me more thankful for the things that I have.
So...I'm thankful for a toddler who wakes up every morning saying "Hey mama!" "Mama, where are you?" And who falls asleep like this in the stroller after a walk to Starbucks.
I'm thankful for a tiny baby who is healthy, chunky, and starting to smile.
And for a husband who doesn't mind drying off with a hand towel because all of the regular towels are dirty.
So, so much to be thankful for. :)
