This morning was a peculiar morning. There actually wasn't anything different about this morning, but it made me realized how blessed we really are.
Breakfast was homemade biscuits with homemade strawberry jam. The oldest daughter prefers honey, which was of course local and was purchased last year from a local farm. Then we had fresh eggs our hens had laid and wild boar sausage we had processed ourselves last fall.
We ate breakfast around our table together, no tv this morning, no computer. Just family.
Then we all got ready to go to church. No new clothes, nothing fancy or expensive. In fact I think most things we wore this morning was from either a yard sale or thrift store. I see no need in purchasing overly priced new items, when used is just as good.
We got to church and got to visit with our church friends and family. We sang, we worshipped, we shared one another's burdens. And it was a great time.
We don't have a huge house, a huge car, we aren't famous. But we have a beautiful, blessed little life and I wouldn't change it for anything......
