Grateful For The Little Things

It’s Grateful Heart Friday and I have something that I’m super thankful for this week! The love of popcorn! Sounds silly, but I love popcorn and I can’t get anyone in my family on board. Yea, my husband will eat a little, my girls say it gets stuck in their throats, and I’ve thought the little guy is still too little! Sometimes I just crave popcorn as an easy, salty, yummy snack, but I hate to make it just for me (probably because I don’t do microwave popcorn and go the whole nine yards with my Whirly Pop with real butter!) But this week, our little neighbor came over to play with the girls and they had a blast creating all sorts of art which gave me an idea – “Let’s have an art show!” They made invitations and I made popcorn. Later, the neighbors came over to view the gallery set up in our dining room and munch on some popcorn. Guess what? My three children devoured the popcorn and almost more than the beautiful art, empty popcorn bowls made me smile! I’m so grateful that my kids now love popcorn!! It’s the little things friends!
      I’m grateful for the creativity that floods my home. I’m grateful for awesome neighbors that cook for us, play with us and love us. I’m grateful for my fabulous husband and God blessing him with another year of life. Most of all, I’m grateful for a God that is just as interested in the tiny details of my life, as He is the bigger issues. I’m grateful that He knows the little things that make me smile and He delights to bring those things into my life.
