I awake and the red sunlight filters through the autumn trees, lighting my room with happiness. My feet hit the floor and carry me to the bathroom, where a Bible verse taped to the window glows with morning sun. I hear the little girl's noises from the other side of the door and I smile. These are the times - the times when I want to be thankful. There's much bigger things to worry about today, but still I can notice the little things. Still I want to be grateful for the everday. Overwhelmed with the small and thankful for the big. So today, I am thankful for...
