The Smallest Blessings Thursday


I find that when I appreciate and am thankful for the beauty in everyday things and in everyday situations that I am more likely to wear a smile and be content with where I am in life. I love that the Smallest Blessings meme at Her Southern Charm is encouraging that.

This week my smallest blessing is a plate of homemade cookies.

I am so thankful that I can be home in the afternoons to make cookies or some other treat for my kids and to sit around the snack bar with them while they talk about their day. I get to hear what's on their minds while they fill their hungry tummies with something Mama made with love. It's one of my favorite parts of the day.

I love this. My mother used to do the same thing for me. They say the best food is made with love. :-)
