Confession: small basketballs and footballs are thrown in my home and cartwheels happen throughout my house often. There are fingerprints on my ceilings from all the jumping, but today it is quiet. No one is moving in my house, no one is in my driveway. No one is even talking. I have sick kids. The fevers have taken my bouncing kids and made sleep their number one mission. The only good part of having sick children is all the cuddling. (We've played several board games too.) Many days I have wished for a little peace and quiet, but now that it has come I'm ready for the crazy again. Do you ever wish for what you don't have or can't experience? I think we all do. The grass may look greener on the other side of the fence, but it might be soggy or prickly. Being content each day means being thankful each day. God knows the grass we have is what we need for today. "And you will always give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Ephesians 5:20) Let's not wish away today because today was God's plan. However today looks, let's be thankful.
