Josiah has always loved to "play piano" <3. When he was Noah's age, I used to sit him on my lap while I played lead sheets in the key of C... haha. Nothing fancy, and so when I am asked if I could play piano, I always truthfully answer, eh, not really. Mama shared a picture of those sweet moments one time, and our "adopted Grandpa" in the Friendship Choir leaned forward one rehearsal, and told me, "I saw you playing that piano with that baby. Now you have to play for us someday." I don't think he believed me, haha... But, given that, I find it adorable that now Josiah plays with Noah <3.

I love this little face, with it's messy curly hair and sweet little nose!!!
Today I am thankful for the little moments...
time change, because I honestly love this schedule, sorry to those of you who don't, haha - Noah patting me and asking if I can pick him up - and calling up to me from the bottom of the stairs to ask if he can have m&m's for absolutely no reason, heehee - working on a bible reading schedule with some of my siblings, and being able to discuss what is happening "now" with the younger ones - Josiah asking me to come snuggle him before he goes to sleep - the feel of a warm cup in my hands in the early morning - putting pen to paper again, because for the past several months I've either been too overwhelmed or too busy to write, and now it's such a joy to bring it back - giving people nicknames as a form of affection - crossing items off my to-do list that has gotten far too long in the past couple months - Josiah, manly man that he may be, still climbing up for some snuggles like the little guy that he is - late night laughter with my sisters - Andrew's quirky grin when he knows I'm being a goose, but he doesn't want to discourage me - evening texts from dear friends - songs that encourage one in the Lord - Noah's sweet little voice singing along to a hymn - seeing Peter becoming a little artist - the little boys in their matching pjs - answers to prayer - a family that will be there for me through thick and thin - reading through the bible and noticing little details I've missed so many times before... there is always something to learn - dear friends sharing their words of encouragement with others - being able to sit down and thank the Lord for all this and so much more on a otherwise hectic day <3.
Happy Thursday! What did you do today? What are you thankful for :)? What is your opinion on the autumn time change?
