The short list

When I need to keep things in perspective, when I want something I don't need, when myself gets in the way, not much helps bring me back around better than a gratitude list. So here's a few things I'm thankful for today.

a field full of round bales

three freshly showered, sunkissed, pool-tired, waterlogged kids snuggled up with each other on the couch
the smell of chicken roasting in the oven and fresh veggies from the garden
full tummies and empty plates
health, whole bodies, whole minds
time and the creativity to utilize it
fresh ferns hanging from a farmhouse porch

freedom of choice
and the courage to use it
