The Small Things

This is the time of the year when we reflect on all that we are grateful for. Family, friends, our spouses and children. These are the people that keep our hearts full and we are thankful for them, not just when the Thanksgiving dinner bell tolls, but all days of the year.

There are also small things in life to be grateful for. Things that should not be taken for granted for they are the simple joys that you find in the everyday. Some moments that may seem ordinary are the memories you will hold on to for a lifetime.

Here are a few simple moments from our week that I am grateful for:

:: listening to the heartbeat of our sixth baby.

:: eating at the dinner table as a family; the girls sharing their days with everyone.

:: a very generous gift to our girls from a client of my husband’s.

:: loving the new Ikea comforter for the twins; seeing them cuddle under it together.

:: the remaining leaves clinging to Autumn, I love the rust colored trees the best.

What are the small things that you have been thankful for lately?
