I am thankful for the fact that changing diapers in this same spot every day is, well — just that. A part of my life. My every day world. This scene is a reminder to me of the miracle that it is to have sweet, healthy children. No one should take that for granted.
Oh, and for SURE I’m thankful for disposable gloves. Handling raw meat, changing a nasty diaper, random painting projects … you name it. I use them daily.
I am thankful for the chore of doing the dishes. Because seeing this mess reminds me that we have food to eat — plenty of food — every day. And running water and electricity to get those dishes clean. And loved ones to join us for a meal once in a while.
I am thankful for these anti-bacterial hand soaps from Bath & Body. You’ll find them at every single sink in our home. And I’m thankful they go on sale once in a while because that’s the only time I buy them.
