Gratitude - Day 20

Today, I am thankful that it is technically already Friday and this long crazy week is coming to an end. And I am thankful for my friends.

The one who sent me a devotional at the perfect time this week reminding me that
"God never intended for us to make completing a to-do list the purpose of our lives."
~Rick Warren
Hurray for that piece of good news! Because if that was my purpose I would certainly be failing. But it's not, and I know it's not. But too often I fall into the trap of judging my success as a parent, as a homemaker, as a child of God by how much I get checked off my list.

And I'm thankful for my friend who recently reminded me to get up close with my camera. I did, yesterday.
And look what I found.

Gorgeous photo! She's such a pretty girl.

I hadn't heard that quote before, but it is right on. Perfect to hear at a very listy time of year.
