You’d think that we never have food in my house. When I come home from the grocery store my kids are instantly hungry and it literally becomes a mild feeding frenzy in our kitchen.
Can I have some blueberries?
How about cherries?
Could I just try this cereal?…please?
You got this? You’re the best!
Could I please have a teeny – tiny taste of these crackers?
So my new strawberries end up on the top shelf of our cabinet — out of little ones reach — just until dinner — they’re just waiting for that yummy fruit salad.
It’s these simple things in life that make me content. They bring joy. It doesn’t need to be a grandiose trip, or a new couch, or any thing huge — it’s the little things. The excitement of Elijah as he eats a handful of blueberries. The joy that the box of freezy pops brings to my older boys. And me? I’m grateful. So thankful for stores that are bursting with food. Thankful for the $56 I saved using coupons. Thankful for the ability to purchase food. Thankful for the new baseball that we received as we were leaving the parking lot. Thankful for the vehicle to get to the store. Thankful for the working fridge to put the food into. Thankful for the little faces grinning as they unloaded the bags.
Have a blessed Saturday!
I’m looking into homeschooling Wes too! I was home schooled for a couple years and my mom used Calvert. It was pretty good but I did not like the penmanship they thought or the paper the had you use to write on.
We hide all our berries on the top shelf behind the milk in the very far corner!Lol We are also thinking about buying a banana tree since those never last either!
Just for the record, we have three children, so don’t let anyone get away with saying that they act that way because there are so many of them!
Have a blessed week!
Yep, the simple things are the best. 🙂 I can’t believe you saved $56 using coupons! Wow.
Have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow, Rachel!!

My husband gets paid once a month…that has been…challenging at times. Used to try going to a place like Costco to get food for the month. Only problem, my kids would act like yours and the food would be gone long before the end of the month came…fun memories!
Know that you’re always in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 103:1-5 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

I COULD HAVE WRITTEN THIS BLOG!!! 😀 I just had to laugh as I read it because I relate to it so much! My 15 yo boys are especially thankful to me when I come home with food (devouring something before the groceries are even put away… as if they have been starving!!). I LOVE how thankful they are during those moments in time!!!!
Yep,, still here,, lol,, reading past posts,, I really am enjoying this,, its real life,, lived well,
