In the tapestry of childhood,
what stands out is not the splashy, blow-out trips to Disneyland
but the common threads that run throughout and repeat:
the family dinners, nature walks, reading together at bedtime,
Saturday morning pancakes.
-Kim John Payne
It occurs to me that, elsewhere, most are not living a life with common threads. There are no family dinners around the table. No bedtime stories. No Saturday morning pancakes.
Today I am painfully aware of my blessings... and my routine refusal to recognize them and be thankful.
Enjoying the luxury of common threads today, and thanking God for His graciousness. Even in hard times, we have so much to be thankful for....
