Small Graces

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving week. Ours ended well but started out a little rough. I dropped my phone and the screen went black. It had been put through the ringer, so honestly I was a little surprised that it lasted as long as it did. I ended up dragging all four kids to the mall...surprisingly it went very well! We checked out some Christmas displays, stopped by the Lego store, enjoyed some mall food, and the kids got some individual i-pad time at the Apple store. Apple's consumer service is amazing - even though I admitted that I had dropped my phone, among other things, they replaced it for free!



This year we celebrated Thanksgiving with some friends from our church. We all had a blast and I enjoyed only being charge of mashed potatoes. The day after Thanksgiving we did our annual tree cutting tradition. Big Buddy was so excited this year. He's getting so big! He tried his hardest to cut down the tree by himself, Jeremy had to help a little bit. Plus he insisted on helping carry the tree - it was a long walk too, almost 200 yards! 






We spent the rest weekend slowly decorating our tree and house.  Watching Christmas movies, eating too many cookies, and drinking too much eggnog. 




This post is part of an almost weekly series inspired in part by Bob Bennett's song "Small Graces"

Sometimes they slip by without notice
Sometimes they are very hard to see
Other times it's all so clear when they are happening to me...

These are the small graces, the little moments when the miracles come...
Small graces leading to the larger one...

They are a reminder to the heart there is more to the life than meets the eye...
He is in the small graces,  the little moments when the miracles come...

  1. Lucky you! People usually have problems on having their phones fixed, but your experience was a pretty straightforward one. Either way, it's a good idea to get something to protect your phone, so that there's only a low chance of it breaking once you drop it. Take care!
