Today I am thankful for the slower pace of life in Ghana. I am grateful for a Sunday afternoon spent enjoying an impromptu 4 hour visit to my neighbor’s house. (Same friend whose party we were at yesterday.) I am thankful for the hours of sharing about our lives with each other, snuggling her baby, and my children playing with her boys and nieces and nephews. I am thankful neither of us had anything else to rush off to. I am thankful that most nights my husband is home by 6:15pm and doesn’t have to go back out again. I am thankful that we are in a season where I do not have to wake up and rush my children out the door.
It’s nice to be slow and present.
