Thankful Thursday #37
I am so thankful for so many things everyday.
You know, sometimes it is the simple things in life that make you slow down for a second and just take a minute to think and be grateful.
I am thankful for ice cream in general, but homemade peach in particular.
Maybe it's because I was born in Georgia and have lived in the same county all of my life, but peach is definitely the best.
It has not felt like Spring around here! I am ready for warm weather and nights of ice cream to cool you down. My Papa makes the best homemade ice cream. There really is no contest and with new ice cream makers it doesn't take as long as it used to making a batch. But to be honest, I think the old way makes it taste better because you have to wait on it.
Most everything today is instant. We can order a package and have it within 24 hours. We don't have to send payments or even a friendly note by snail mail. Even the post office is much faster than it used to be with other options for shipping. My kids buy the microwaveable rice and it cooks so fast. But, it doesn't taste the same to me. And, really, how much time have you really saved? Well, I guess it's worth saving a pot to clean from boiling the rice. I hate cleaning up the kitchen! That's another good thing about warm weather, nobody wants to be in a hot kitchen so we grill out a lot.
Some things are worth taking the extra time, like homemade ice cream. It's always good to be able to slow down for just a few minutes and think about our blessings. Even if they take a little longer to find sometimes, you have to eat ice cream slow anyway.
Sorry if I have tempted anyone with ice cream, but anything that helps us take in the good things in life, even for just a few minutes, can't be that bad for you.
I just listed these two new pieces today.

Luke 5:15-16 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
