Small Graces

A weekly reflection inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces".

"these are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...
sometimes they slip by without notice
sometimes they are very hard to see
other times it's very clear when they are happening to me" 

when city work trucks stop in front of our house

finding them happy and quiet instead of whiny
and fighting

the privilege to vote & that it's so safe and easy i can
bring my kids 

how proud he is to show his daddy his school work 

my hot cocoa chef

his satisfied patron 

sweet girls holding hands

peppermint tea with honey

when zoo animals come close

It's November so like a ton of other people I'm keeping a thankful list...

1) my husband's loyal love 2) healthy kids 3) clean water 4) the way mini man pats my back when i hold him 5) god's word - written for me to read 6) the ability to learn new skills 7) the privilege to vote - safely 8) quiet mornings spent talking to my husband 9) a hot cup of tea 10) birthday celebrations
