Feeling Grateful.

Tonight on our way to our dear friends house for the annual pumpkin carving FHE activity we ran into some pretty awesome looking clouds. We pulled over, I snapped a few pictures, then we continued on our way. This simple experience left me feeling grateful for a few things.

Thing 1. Grateful for a husband who pulls over so I can take pictures of scary looking clouds.

Thing 2. Grateful for the beauty all around. For changing seasons and seeing His hand everywhere.

Thing 3. Grateful for children who make everything more fun. Even silly holidays like Halloween.

And finally, I was feeling grateful for friends. And traditions. And the knowledge that simple evenings like this will be remembered for years to come.


  1. What a lovely post! Gratitude is often underrated, I think. Thanks for sharing the awesome pics! :) ~Becky
