Thanksgiving Thursday, 2% Small Curd Bucket of Grace

When I began keeping a Thanksgiving journal, it was important to me to not just fill a journal, but to see God’s love in all I filled it with. Again, when I began sharing Thanksgiving Thursday’s, I wanted to always remember that all is grace, not just words to fill a blog post.

I had this on my mind the other evening as I was writing a few abstract thoughts down in my Pages of Motherhood journal. I was sitting on the couch, one leg curled underneath me, my favorite pen in hand, and a glass of Chardonnay gently tucked under a fold of the couch to hold it in place.

Then I heard it. A wonderfully familiar sound. I reached for my Thankfulness journal and scribbled # 150, The sound of the cottage cheese bucket being opened.

I smiled. Yes, all is grace. Not just words to fill pages or blogs, but sweet grace, daily blessings. My husband sat down next to me and handed me our usual late night snack: 2% small curd cottage cheese.

It’s odd how one bucket of cottage cheese can differ from another of the same milk fat and curd size, but the best ones have just that right amount of creaminess and just the right texture and flavor. This particular one, the one that became #150, was perfect. All. Is. Grace.

    Giving thanks for finally getting to see a blue jay after hearing him squawk all week;
    having godly friends who faithfully pray for me and give wise advice,
    Jodi being at the top of that list;
    Autumn being in the air;
    our neighbor’s peach tree bearing bountifully;
    downed aspen from friends’ property for our wood stove this winter;
    Thank you, Jodianna, for your blogs–each one shines! Mama
