{Grateful...}

Today is Five Minute Friday:

"For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not." Lisa-Jo, the Gypsy Mama



------ 

As the rain drops upon the roof, rhythmic patterns of soft and soothing I am reminded...
Reminded of the memories made and thanks lived yesterday.

The gathering around table with faces and lives not seen in a long time.
Grateful.

The sharing of stories and encouraging words.
Grateful.

The hugs and "I missed you's."
Grateful.

The lives of extended family and the sharing and laughter of memories past.
Grateful.

The secret inside jokes told, laughter resounding through-out.
Grateful.

The planning of a cousin trip in the future to come.
Grateful.

For these things I am grateful and thankful to God.
Not just in the giving of thanks, but in the blessing of being able to live the thanks...

...These memories watering my heart like the rain watering the earth.

For what are you Grateful today?

---STOP---

By His Grace, 
Cole
