I am still working on my list of 1000 moments that I am thankful for. Tonight seems to be centered around more of the ugly beauty moments. In case you are not familiar, it goes a little something like this…dishes in the sink, because we are too busy to think, Isaiah losing his mind, and yet in that very loud moment, I was still able to hear my shepherd’s voice gently telling me to slow down, selfishness and the recognition of it. Even in these things, the hard things…there is beauty, and something to be thankful for. I have time. Sweet time, days and nights of beautiful moments, and ugly-beautiful moments, and for that I am grateful. Mostly, I am grateful that today is done, and tomorrow will be new. There is something really powerful about KNOWING that you are in a test, right when you are IN IT.
