Last fall Robert walked into our apartment one afternoon bearing a "present" for me. He tossed it over, an acorn he'd found outside. It was big and round and smooth with the most perfect little hat on one end and the tiniest, sharpest point on the other. I put it in the tray by the door where we toss our keys and mail and there it remained, rolling around, for the rest of our days in that apartment. When we were packing up our things to move out in May, I don't know why, but I kept putting off chucking that acorn. It was one of the last things left in our apartment, when I finally convinced myself to part with it.
I thought about that acorn earlier this week when some acorns on our patio crunched under my feet. Things are SO different now then they were then. Only a year has passed, but now Robert has an awesome job. Now I finally have my work at a steady place I feel good, no GREAT, about. Now we own our home, and most exciting of all now we have our very own little baby on the way. It's like everything I ever wanted fell into place all at once, and this Thanksgiving I couldn't possibly be any more aware of how truly blessed I am.
So many, many blessings... like the abundance of acorns all over my yard.
