He put on his carhartt jacket, winter boots, and gloves before heading out to the road with our garbage bins…. as I watched him walk down the driveway, I whispered… “Thank you”.
Within minutes, the kids all ran out to play in the yard and I watched them from the inside window and I whispered… “Thank you”.
I slipped into the kitchen to start dinner and I decided to throw on some Over the Rhine to sway back and forth to while I cooked our dinner.
I knew my moments alone would be short so I wanted to be sure to soak them in. As I stood at the oven, I whispered once again… “Thank you”.
It only takes just a second to say thank you. To sit and soak in the utter joy that one moment has to offer you.
May the new year bring you a million reasons to say thank you.
