In the Moment Gratitude

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton

I'm grateful that now that Pop Warner football is over we can eat dinner at 6 pm instead of 8:30

I'm grateful that we got the firewood covered with tarps and the garage clutter moved under the deck before the rain and snow came

I'm grateful for an extra large size bathtub especially on cold days

I'm grateful for a 17 year old son high-fiving his 7 year old brother after a hard-played football game

I'm grateful for leisurely Sundays where I can read and nap and get ready for the upcoming week

I'm grateful for a little boy preparing for First Confession who is quietly trying to do good things for the love of God.  


  1. I like your quote! And also your list.

  2. I just copied that quote and put it up by our thanksgiving tree! So thanks for sharing it!


I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
