Let Us Rejoice and Be Glad In It!
My random day to document things I am grateful for was Saturday. It started just like every other day, after my morning prayers I take my medication for hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed back in September. I am so thankful that the exhaustion has decreased dramatically!
Lazy Saturday mornings call for breakfast that takes longer to bake, like sticky buns. They are especially delicious because I didn’t have to bake them!
Driving into town to take a couple of girls to choir practice we were greeted by the sun shining through the clouds offering just a tiny bit of warmth to the rather chilly day.
This is the sight that greets us right after the last turn for home marked by those trees off in the distance, still another four miles.
And this is the sight in my rear view mirror. Another small miracle – the windows are clean enough to reflect the sky. They are usually covered in a nice layer of dust.
Fudge helps me clean up the bean bed after lunch. We talk about the garden fresh bounty we had this summer and make plans for next year’s garden.
These girls cluck and squawk the entire time we are outside, begging for just a little more grain.
After I get cleaned up from working outside Special Dark proudly shows me his latest drawing.
Then Hershey, not to be outdone, shows how her skirt twirls. I laugh at her self-trimmed bangs.
Laundry is next on the agenda. It is a task I actually enjoy, made even better by the wonderful scents I add to the towels.
Sleeping little boys are a mama’s reprieve.
Since it’s Saturday, church clothes needs to be pressed and ironed, made ready for church the next day. I love the feel of Mr. Ferrero Rocher’s starched shirts!
A little splashing in the tub by a deliciously chubby baby rounds out the day splendidly.
Except for the trip to town it was a pretty typical Saturday. I am so grateful for days where emergencies and excitement are no where to be found. There is stability and comfort in the mundane.
