Today has been a good one. Granted, I missed church for some issues of health, but that aside, the day has been lovely, with highs around 60, light work to be done, the kids halfway behaving, and so on.
As we speak, the family is watching a dvd from the library, about dogs. It is nice to hear them all talk to the dogs on the screen, get involved in something together, even if it is a dvd. For a moment, there is no fussing, no fighting, no arguing. Looking at them right now, you could not tell any of them had autism.
It's the little things in life that matter. Like the moments that the kids watch a children's dvd without arguing or fighting. Like the warmer temperature, if only for a day before it goes back down to the arctic. Like a loving husband who helped throughout the health issue.
Thank the Lord for those little things in life! Thank Him for each one--they mean more than the "big" things that happen only once in a great while. The little things, they add up!
Today, I am thankful for the little things.
