Today was full of little moments that made me smile. I’m thankful for this outlet that gives me a place to record them, thus noticing and enjoying them even more.

These pine boards have held imprints of homework and crossword puzzles; seen holiday meals; held our midnight efforts to put together the gingerbread house that one year; been the staging grounds for school projects; and held millions of puzzle pieces over the years.

Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. – John Milton

Thank you Lord, for the little happy moments of today.
