What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Gratitude Monday

Oh, yes, there are many....



77: A good spit-dousing from a teething babe



78: six days straight of wearing same birthday dress. (Less laundry too!)

79: Labor day~ and thanking God my husband is still working

80: A God who hears, comfort for those who aren't

81: Vibrant Opa~another visit



82: A moment just for them, I wasn't invited



83: A boy, who still gets the idea to curl up with his Mama-and hold her hand



84: A Nanny Moment, seeing my mom enjoy my child



85: Weak Grandma-in-love who insists upon making us lunch whenever we visit.

86: And always has desserts

87: And gives second helpings of whipping cream



88: An egg twice the size.... the SUMO egg



89: A nose, and lips, and hair SHARED

90: Eyes like her Papa



91: A chicken turned falcon. Pinecone who rests on my hand without flying away. I love her.



93: A handful of days left before Mama and children gather round the school table.

94: NOT schooling, but still learning that:

~ Two week old Alpaca's weigh 18 pounds
~ They don't have hooves, but toenails
~ How to turn sheep wool into yarn or fleece
~ Teasing wool can be pretty fun
~ Loom Weaving is pretty amazing
~ Pig chasing can get out of hand
~ Certain poisonous spiders can kill you in 15 minutes flat




Little treasures, ever sought, often discovered, always enjoyed.

oh yes- was there more than one yolk in the giant egg? think the most we ever got was 3, and that might've been a duck egg.
Did you know that when a duck lays its egg in oh, say a small swimming pool, they get soft. Esp. if its been in there for (ahem) over a week? We found that out growing up....
