Before sitting down to dinner I had each grandchild choose a mini pumpkin and we went outdoors for a very quick photo shoot. What fun they are! How I love them!
G. K. Chesterton once said, "I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that happiness is gratitude doubled by wonder."
I sit here now in the quiet and watch the pink sunset steal across the sky. A white contrail catches the light as it moves westward. Two pine trees stand silhouetted against the horizon. The air coming in through the open doors and windows is cooling dramatically. This moment, this day. I am filled with thanksgiving to God for the people in my life.
