A year ago, I found the screens for the windows in the kitchen and figured out how to open them. Then, last fall, we replaced the windows in our school room and then the bedroom windows this spring.
Fresh air may seem like a little thing, but it isn't to me anymore. I am thankful for it. So thankful.
But, I fear that sometime I may not be as thankful for the fresh air. What I find is that when I can't have something or when it is missing, I appreciate it more when it returns...
...whether it is my health after being sick.
...or time with my kids after a very busy period.
...or pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving since I haven't eaten one since the celebration a year before.
...or the warmth of spring after the deep cold of winter.
I hope the Lord will always help me remember the blessing of fresh air.
