Practicing contentment by remembering the graces of the week and practicing gratitude by giving.
My little girl loves balls: Soccer balls, beach balls, tennis balls -you name it. If it's round it's a winner. Even onions and apples have fallen victim to the pitching arm of my toddler as she declared them a "ball". This week I was able to watch her awe and wonder as she was introduced to a ball-pit for the first time.

This week we were blessed with a few days away at a timeshare that was shared by family. We slept in as late as GBaby would let us (or as late as HandyMan would let me), stayed in our pjs and watched cartoons and Food Network and just played. We also ate some yummy cookies. It was a much needed respite for our family.
In our absence, our dog got to play with another doggy friend for the week, and for our friends who dog sat, we are very appreciative!
As we head into the week before Thanksgiving, I hope you can look back, and forward, to find the joy dotting your story! Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
