24: Strawberry Refreshments

I loved this illustration from “The Ragamuffin Gospel” by Brennan Manning about finding the gift in every moment.

I didn’t think too much about it as I was reading it today, but it came back to my mind as I was trying to bounce my sleep-resistant baby to sleep this evening. I realized I was focusing on the “cliffs” and “tiger” of my today when the “strawberry” of my little guy’s head on resting snugly on my shoulder should be the focus of my attention.
