If you've been visiting Thinking About Home for even a little while, then you know that we love to celebrate God's gifts. Birthdays. Babies. Holidays. Big occasions. Small occasions.
Today Bekah and I celebrated one of the latter. A small occasion.
After watching the nesting Canada geese all around our corner of the world this spring, we decided that we'd celebrate the first goslings we sighted with coffee smoothies from our favorite coffee shop.
Many people consider Canada geese a nuisance. There are quite a few of them around, they are messy, and they can be feisty. But Bekah and I kind of like their spunk, and we admire that they mate for life. Earlier in the season, as she drove to work, Bekah passed a lone goose in a parking lot for several days in succession. She worried that it was injured. Why else would it hang out in a busy doctor's office parking lot? Then one day she texted me that all was well with the goose! She had spotted another goose just barely visible among some shrubs. The parking lot goose was simply keeping watch over his growing family.
And how can we not ooh and ahh over groups of downy little goslings strutting along with their parents?
Last Sunday, we spotted the first little feathered family.
And this afternoon, we celebrated!
Do you ever celebrate the small things?
