Thanks For the Little Things

The things we have to be thankful for are endless.  Firstly, there are the big things. The things that we take for granted everyday.  These big things include our health and our people.  Secondly, the medium things.  Our shelter from the storm, food for our bellies, and our employment which makes meeting those needs possible. And finally, there are the little things.  The things that make life worth living.  Today, I am so thankful for the big, medium, and the little things in life.

The Little Things...

Yellow boots and stripy sweaters.
Fall leaves and pumpkin bags.

Bearded dads.
Cool, windy Fall days.
Toques and mitts.

Pumpkin spice candles.
Blond curls and long shaggy bangs.
New Angry Birds hat.

Girls who tell stories and put on living room shows.
Snuggling girls in cozy, fleece feet pajamas. 
Throwing the leaves that dad just swept up.

Cheezy smiles.
The extra at home day today.
Camera self-timers.

Happy Thanksgiving.
