“A grateful heart silences a complaining voice.” Bishop Emeritus Eugene Gerber

This week, I’m thankful for all these things that bring me so much JOY and silence my complaints:

  • Rain, rain, rain!
  • No flooding in our house. {Though I’m praying for those who are dealing with this.}
  • Lots of rain = a luscious garden! I’ve never seen our yard and all the flowers so alive in the middle of summer! Feels more like Spring again.
  • Umbrellas, windshield wipers.
  • Puddles.
  • Daily Mass.
  • Christ present here with us in the Eucharist.
  • GRACE.
  • Praying together with my children and husband.
  • Talking about God and life and other deep things with our daughter.
  • Watching Fr. Robert Barron’s Catholicism DVD series with my husband and talking about it afterwards.
  • Falling deeper in love with our Faith together.
  • My mom and her amazing wisdom and generous heart that brings us yummy treats and comes along to help me pick out a new dishwasher. (In other words – keep an eye on the kids so I can pay attention and make a decision!)
  • A good home warranty company that’s helping cover the cost of a new dishwasher after ours went kaput.
  • My helpful little (and big!) interim “dishwashers”.
  • Prayers answered for a friend’s lost wedding ring.
  • “Brain exercises” and “story-time” with kids. (gotta get them back in shape before school!)
  • Baby Laughs
  • Our sweet 3-year-old’s voice. (The last “no many” one is the cutest)
  • Our six-year-old’s enthusiasm for my cooking!
