Tonight I'm thankful for

Boys on bikes, three miles as fast as legs could go

Lime popsicles under the shade tree

Swimming holes clear and blue

Slippery shoes hiking home

Long sword sticks knocking apples from above

Watermelon seeds spit clear 'cross the yard

Long rows of green beans picked by little boy hands

Dirty, sweaty boys nearly asleep by home

Cool washcloths, no time for a bath

Heavy eyelids determined to hear the end of the story

Light out, fan on, crickets serenade

House is quiet

heart is full


  1. Just beautiful! And a really great reminder for each of us to remember the things we have to be thankful for.

  2. So beautiful, Christine. May the rest of your summer be just as wonderful.

    No time for a bath--that's the best sign of a good day.

  3. This is beautiful Christine. Very.

    And I'm thankful for you :-)
