The Season of Thanksgiving

Today is the first day of November, which means it is the first day of the season of Thanksgiving! For today's Teach Me Tuesday post, I would like to share about The 30 Days To Being Thankful Challenge at Becoming A Strong Woman Of God . Sonya, at has put out this challenge. I will be contributing a guest post on November 17th.

November 1, 2011 : I am thankful for so many things; my salvation, my family, my friends . . .Today, one thing in particular stands out to me. As I was rocking my son to sleep. Tonight it hit me, as I was sitting in a glider in Robbie's darkened nursery, listening to praise music in the background. I won't have these days for long. Tonight, I cherished my time with Robbie as we went through his bedtime routine of bath, nursing and bed. Quite often, I am quick to get my little one off to bed so I can finish up household chores, put dinner away, blog etc.

As I rocked my little boy to sleep, he took in a deep relaxing breath, I felt his warm little body drift off to dreamland. The soft peach fuzz on his sweet little head brushed against my cheek. As I kissed him goodnight and tucked him into his crib until morning, I thanked the Lord for this wonderful gift!

So tonight, I am thankful for the small things in life . . . like rocking my baby to sleep.

Wow! ten? You are a blessed saint! I agree with Loni, Sarah. I just turned around and you were graduating college and walking down the aisle with Rich, and then driving down the street to live in another state; waving goodbye to me. I don't know where the time goes. CHERISH every second...Mama Robin.
