Satisfied Sunday #1

So this is what my dinner table looked like yesterday, around noon:


My sister dragged her mahogany record player downstairs and placed it in the kitchen; we then proceeded to play vinyl after vinyl, showing each other new songs and old favorites. It was a sister record day for, well, the record. (Props if you can find the dinosaur!)

So....I'd like to introduce a new feature here on this here bloggy. *woot* I am trying to be more grateful and really enjoy my life, and one way I can do that is to appreciate all I've been given. The little things that go wrong (like having the hot water go out) pale in comparison to what others have to undergo. And I'm so grateful God has given me an amazing family, and sent Christ to make a way for me. I want this joy to color my life and make me a kinder, more gracious person.

Enter Satisfied Sunday. For my these posts, I will be naming something (or perhaps multiple somethings) that I am grateful for. 

one. My sister, Kaylie. We have truly wacky times together. Just this past weekend, we spent more than an hour staring up at the sky and laughing about nothing in particular. She is my musical partner, my secret keeper (sometimes!), and my joy. God knew that I needed a little bald headed child to follow me around when I was younger, and I'm so grateful for her presence in my life today. 

Hey, you! Yeah, you! What are you thankful for?
