Saturday Morning In My Kitchen

Candles and warm light in my favorite nook.

Hmmm…What to fix? The possibilities…

.

Writing down daily thanksgiving on the family Eucharisteo board.

It’s all grace. Every bit of it.

Even this…

This is one of the first things I see….Lonnie refused to eat his nutritional bits.AGAIN.

Basements Shouldn’t Be Swimming Pools!

This morning I got up and went about my regular Saturday morning routine. I noticed, while in the kitchen, that the water pressure seemed sort of weak. I told my husband. He went down to the basement to check the pump.

Splash.

He found out that our basement had nearly six feet of water in it! Good grief.

It continues to rain. And the entire area is under a flood warning. The ground is saturated.

So is our basement.

What a mess.

Sigh.

I decided that I could worry and be upset about this whole occurrence…

It certainly would be easy to get angry…

But….I’ve been disciplining myself over the past several weeks.

Daily eucharisteo.

Giving thanks.

Is today’s mess frustrating? Yes.

A pain in the neck? Definitely.

It could have been worse.  But, it wasn’t.

Thanks on the good days. Thanks on the not as good days.

Each day there are things to be thankful for.
