Practicing Gratitude... 10.24.11

- Those Rangers... and those players who make up the team.

- Celebrating the first World Series game (even with a loss)


- Dr. Nelms' generosity

- Napoli's 3-run homer (C'm on! It's the World Series!)

- Nowhere else we'd rather be

- Josh Hamilton, and this book we are loving reading aloud with our boys. Each chapter leaves them begging for more 
- A dust-filled home. All points to progress.

- Mama & Papa having a place here in Fort Worth.

- Nickmo!!!

- Skylar knowing the ins and outs of our family, home, dogs - her friendship and service to us

- Taking time to be still

- Hud's quick catch at pitcher


- Many years of celebrating birthdays with Hotchkisses

- Esther's "double" grin - she smiles, then when our eyes connect, it goes even deeper

- Peeking in at the sisters asleep, all limbs a tangle, in that big queen bed

- Nightly routine

- Hud playing memory on the floor with Es

- Cappy & Daboo in the stands

- Bran grateful for being out of a slump

- Cloudy day, cooler weather

- Boxing gloves


- Davis' hospitality - AND theater room to watch the World Series!

- Dependent on the Lord directing my steps. Too many to figure out on my own.

- These two and their love for this 

- Open conversations in the bleachers

- The end of an era - Randy and Lindsay taking their dining table to it's rightful home - after a decade in ours. Oh what sweet conversations move along with it.


- Anticipating two more baby cousins (makes 14 for the James side alone)

- Brighton's EIGHT years today. Love you, sweet boy!

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles...   1 Chronicles 16:11-12

Awww. Heart stuff-- so much simpler when they were in boosters and still wearing Longhorn bibs! Darling pictures.
And I too, have seen that grin of E’s.
