Every year, I say that I’m going to participate in a ’30 Day of Thanks” post/photo.
Alas, with 2 little ones, I only made it to 5 days.
It’s not that I’m NOT thankful, of course. I am so very,very thankful for my wonderful life. I can complain about the loss of sleep or despair over my moments of weakness…but gosh darn it all, my life is awesome.
I’m thankful for a husband that still laughs with me; who can read my cues when I’m losing the parenting battle. I’m thankful that when our patience is running thin or our frustrations are getting the better of us – we can look at each other and laugh because we know we’re thinking the same thing.
I’m thankful that we never turn to anger in our toughest moments….it’s always laughter that eases that tension.
I’m thankful my sweet baby girl continues to grow in mind, body and spirit. It makes my heart leap out of my chest when she leaps off the table or asks me to flip her over…but I’m thankful that we nurtured her sense of adventure by simply loving her.
I’m thankful for my sweet little boy who dazzles us with the most charming smiles. I’m thankful he has his daddy’s mellow temperment and easy-going personality. I hope it sticks around!
I’m thankful for good friends and healthy family.
I’m thankful to have a career that I love where I get to work with people I respect and whose company I enjoy.
Thank you God for blessing me with such a great life and teaching me to value those blessings above all things. Happy Thanksgiving!!
