Day Thirty-One: Gravel Days

“Some days are diamonds, some days are stone”, to quote an old song by John Denver. I would have to say that today was somewhere in between. Gravel, maybe?

Our newest blessing is a week old today and an absolute dream to have. On the flipside of that, the chicken in the oven is torturing me! Getting used to an appliance’s sweet spot sometimes takes awhile and this oven is testing the limits, I think.

People can be like that, too.

Do you find the sweet spot in your relationships, with people and with Our Father, and go with the flow? Or, do you test the limits to see if they are really who they claim to be, really do love you, are really there for you?

31. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father, a daddy, and a husband who are there for me, even when I test the limits. I am also thankful for the oven, even though it has been well over an hour and the chicken isn’t done yet. I am most definitely thankful for our newest blessing!
