Today, I am grateful for hay rides and pumpkin patches and apple fritters. I'm grateful for the three boys in my life and all the fun we have.
Today, I am grateful for this cute boy whose favorite color is blue and who picks out his pumpkin with a minimum of fuss. I'm also grateful for the boy in the background wearing the white t-shirt. Indecision may or may not be his problem.
Today, I am grateful for autumn harvest, for plenty, and for the abundance of blessings in our lives. (Please note: white-t-shirt boy picked out the biggest pumpkin. It weighed as much as the other three combined.)
Today, I am grateful for this golden retriever basking in a sunbeam and for the man who shot this amazing photo of Daisy Doolittle looking all grown up and dignified. She's not either of those things. In fact, she's just five months old today and quite shockingly unsensible. But it's cool to get a glimpse into the future.
Here is another picture, much more realistic, of her taken right before she threw up in the back seat of George's car. He was driving the family home after a fall hike in the woods.
"Dude! Drive nice or I'm gonna hurl! Uh-oh. Too late." Hard to believe both pictures are of the same dog, isn't it?
And why, when I write about Daisy, do unpleasant bodily fluids always come into the discussion?
Today, I'm grateful Daisy hurled in George's car and not mine.
What are YOU grateful for today?
