#ThirtyThankfuls Day 19: Ice cream.

Sometimes, when the kids are particularly cranky, and you and your spouse are tired from a good but long and overfull week, the best thing to do is put the kids to bed, leave your beloved at home for (hopefully) a few moments of peace and quiet, jump in the car, and head over to the grocery store for two pints of cold, chocolatey goodness.

Thank you, merciful Lord, for the gift of ice cream, an unnecessary blessing that reminds us that You don’t just give us what we need to survive, but You graciously provide us all good things to enjoy.
