Making the most of small spaces

It has been almost a year since we downsized from our 3400+ square foot home to 1400 square feet of cozy living space.

I am fairly certain I hear God chuckle on nights like this:

with girls and their babes gathered in to “hang out” and watch movies.

I know my heart sings when I watch my boy growing into a young man making a sweet baby giggle.

and when a cherub faced little girl gets her hair braided and walks around our tiny space saying “I pretty”.

Yes, sweet girl, you are very pretty indeed!

We make room on the floor to play dress-up…

and room on the couch for those that need to rest their eyes…

There is something that feels right in this small space filled with laughter and the noise of teenagers…

and I chuckle back to God, and thank Him for filling my heart AND my house on a Friday night.

and the counting of gifts continues {41-50}

~pumpkin pie with whipped cream

~the anticipation of a trip to see family

~chubby baby legs

~good reports at parent teacher conferences

~fuzzy, warm socks

~Bible study with good friends

~hug from the hubby after a bad day

~a new {hot pink with my name on it} study Bible

~friends that know me well enough to give me a {hot pink with my name on it} study Bible

~vehicle that fits lots of mama’s and babies and car seats and diaper bags

What are you thankful for?
