so grateful

so grateful today for a moment in the past few weeks of fog, for clarity, freedom from the symptoms i've been having.

grateful for sunshine.

for my little girl happy in a bright orange dress licking chocolate ice cream so daintily, tissue napkin clutched in her little brown hand...

grateful for granddaughters in various stages of growth, young enough to play dollies but old enough to want 'private time'...

grateful for a husband who cares enough to come home early from work to take me for a check-up...

grateful for the green of bamboo sitting firm on my staircase handrail, a touch of nature put to good use...

grateful for the mistakes made by careless workers, for therein i can learn to hum and look away and quietly request for changes without 'losing it'...

grateful for life, for love, for strange happenings like the unexpected visitor at the door this morning, a naked boy who'd climbed over the wall and was begging for food...

Jesus, you are in it all.

i'm grateful.

THANKS!
