the weary world rejoices

Today, I’m thankful for small dirty hands, and sofa smudges.

For stepping on legos, and tripping on dump trucks.

For laundry piles and dirty dishes. Bedtime struggles and potty training drama.

For beautiful creations, and innocent imaginations.

    There really are no words, are there? Sorrow and thankfulness come to mind. Praying for those families and it definitely makes you think.

  6. Great post Ashley – Bless all the children – they make life worth living. The handmade manger with smiling happy people is so cute, way better than any store bought one :)

    So well put, I know everyone is holding their families just a little tighter.

  11. Rhonda says:

    Love it. I said something eerily similar yesterday… I think mothers everywhere are hurting.

    There are so many “helpers” in our world…but so much incredible destruction and heart wrenching sadness can occur in seconds by one out of millions. Yes, incredible thankfulness for all things small and delightful…all the small but wonderful things.
    but I fear so many are simply “blocking IT out”and moving on with their lives.
    We need REAL change…how?
