Three Gifts Shining. Hmmm. So close to Three Gifts Bright.
Kinsley thought about this assignment and suggested the moon.
“Oh, is it pretty tonight?” I asked her.
“Well, it’s actually pretty EVERY night.”
Right. The moon is certainly something to be thankful for!
We love our aquarium which was a gift from Mom and Dad when we moved into this bigger house. We all find it to be very relaxing, and soothing. One certain child finds it to be a good antidote to sleepless nights.
And the fish are shiny, right?
Our twinkly fairy lights. I am very thankful for them. They are not only cozy to look at, but they have saved me many a stubbed toe and cracked shin as I stumble about the house running various errands for various children who apparently have more pressing things to do at night than sleep.
When I asked Dan what shining things he was thankful for, he immediately thought of my ring. “It’s the shiniest thing I have ever bought!”
I am very thankful for it, too. I am thankful for the wonderful guy who was old fashioned enough to ask my parents for my hand in marriage. I am thankful for the beautiful August evening nine years ago when he presented me with this ring in the middle of a field of tall grass waving gently in the breeze.
I am thankful that I seem to be able to wear my rings again, since every once in a while my body decides to rebel against them and I develop a terribly itchy rash that persists until I take the rings off my finger and put them away for a while.
And I am thankful for all the blessings that have come after the above shiny object was installed on my finger!
