How can I look at the photo above and not feel blessed beyond measure? Recently I have been making a mental list of all the small blessings in my every day life and these smiles are on the top of that list. I suppose having very little, when it comes to material things, is teaching me what really is most important. Relationships, experiences and people I love are essentials for me, and luckily I am blessed with these things everyday. Recognizing that I am given all that I could ever want or need fills me with so much gratitude.
The other night we enjoyed a night at the county fair, arriving just as the sun was going down, painting the sky a beautiful pink hue. Admission was the cost of 3 cans of food per person, Darren won a fish and Wesley got to kiss as many sheep on the nose as he wanted. Just being with these two completes who I am.
