for hurried mornings, too
The hour before the kids leave for school is typically the busiest of my day. There is a warm breakfast to cook, lunches to pack, homework to sign, a Stella to wake, etc. A lot of days it leaves me feeling frantic. This morning, I took one look at Stella's sleepy, rosy cheeks across the breakfast table, and I decided to be grateful for it instead. I am grateful that I get to spend this hour with my children, and that I am able to send them off to school with a wholesome breakfast in their stomachs. I am grateful that once he is ready for school, Oliver likes to sit at the piano. I am grateful that most mornings, Mike doesn't have to leave for work until after the kids have gone. I am especially grateful when we take a minute to say family prayer before everyone leaves.
And then I am thankful for the quiet left behind for me and Elliot to enjoy.
