Thankful for Small Things

Standard

Driving by the school, which is down the street from my house, I scanned the playground. I realized that I was looking for a little boy who is no longer there.

When Wyatt was in kindergarten, I’d look for him on the playground while driving home for lunch. Hoping to catch a glimpse of him running and playing. Since making the decision to homeschool, I no longer have to look for my son elsewhere.

Last Friday, I found myself staring at the playground as I drove by. Got thinking about how God has provided for my family. Sure, we might not always have the newest clothes or are able to eat out all the time, but God has provided for the things that matter most to us. He has allowed us to:

  • Keep Tabitha at home, to allow her to be a full time wife and mom
  • Homeschool Wyatt

Regardless if either of those situations change, God is still good. I’m thankful that He has allowed us to pursue the small things that matter most to us.

What are you thankful for?

    At the moment, I am thankful for water and coffee. Friday at work is wrapping up and the thoughts of the week are being pushed out. That afternoon coffee and big glass of cold water really help center my thoughts on not just what is to come, but what is right here in front of me.

    I am blessed. Great post!
