Gratitude

   

  

 

I am grateful for family fun night. It was Cooper’s pick. He chose bowling. I think that might be the first time I’ve gone bowling since I’ve had kids. I’d forgotten how much fun it is.

I am grateful for a telescope I’ve had in a box under my bed since Santa brought it for our family last Christmas. I finally got that thing set up tonight, and I pointed it at the moon. It was quite the sight to behold, and I even got a pretty good photo by holding my phone up to the eyepiece. 

Nothing like a telescope to blow one’s mind thinking about how close and far away things are, how big the universe is, how insignificant we are, and what a privilege it is to be able to observe the world around us.
