Today I am thankful for the amazing amount of rain that we have gotten in the last week or so. I have heard that we are officially out of “drought conditions” here in my neck of the woods. Everything looks green and lush and the air even smells better. We still need more to refill the farm stock ponds and the lakes, but we are on our way. Thank you Father, for the miracle of rain! Cleansing, refreshing, restoring rain!

Today I am thankful for drains that actually, well, drain. That’s not something I think about much really. I just run water down the drain and assume it’s going to go where it’s supposed to. Over the weekend we had a cold snap with a few inches of snow and everything. So much for it being mild the rest of the winter. 🙂 Anyway, whether it was frozen or just blocked I don’t know, but last Friday night the large drain out to the sewer stopped draining. Water backed up into the bathtub, flooded the garage, the whole thing. Not a lot of fun. Which left us with 3 stinky people, lots of dirty dishes, and no clean laundry. And the potty situation was just, well, eeewwwww!
Monday evening the Roto Rooter guys were finally able to get to my house. Bless them, they apparently had a very busy weekend. And in a matter of 20 minutes from the time they got there to the time they left, they had cleaned out the pipe so everything could flow smoothly the way it was designed. A. Maz. Ing. The thing that was causing such a huge mess in my life was taken care of just like that *Insert finger snap here* by someone who knew what they were doing. Pretty sure there’s a spiritual application somewhere in this little adventure of mine. 🙂

I know, I know, it’s Friday all ready. I had some technical difficulties yesterday, so this didn’t get posted. But it’s here now! Yeah!
Today I am thankful for my parents. I have had the great privilege of having lunch with my parents every Tuesday for the past several years. After lunch Dad goes home and Mom and I spend the rest of the day running errands and shopping. I am so very fortunate to live in the same town with them. Our lunches have deepened our friendship and my appreciation for their wit and wisdom. We have a lot of fun together and these times are very precious to me. Occasionally one of my kids or another family member will join us when they are in town. But as much as I love them, I have to confess that I truly treasure most those days when it’s just the three of us.
The older I get the more I understand what life is really about. Life is about relationships. Real, heart-to-heart relationships. And as it is with so many other things, quantity is no match for quality. I have determined to be more deliberate with the relationships in my life. They are gifts from Father to be nurtured and cherished and celebrated.
