I started this post last night after everything had finally settled down… And I fell asleep! Then woke up to raging allergies this morning. Just as a friendly reminder that I really should be using my script still.
Anywho, yesterday was a blast! We got to spend the day with my family, which means breaking out the old NES and challenging all my brothers to our favorite games from when we were kids. It was fun passing the controllers around and trying to figure out what the controls were for each game. My Mom didn’t even complain that we’d completely taken over the living room to play either.
So on this days of day to be thankful (errr… the day AFTER,) here goes:
I am thankful for…
my family, immediate and extended. You guys are the freaking best!
warm and soft beds to sleep in.
having so much family so close together so that we can visit them all regularly.
a working car that can get us to said family.
stores that have food and other necessities so close at hand.
that we can afford to buy enough food to feed our family.
indoor plumbing and hot showers. Seriously, I like me a hot shower.
finally finding an allergy medication that keeps me from getting sick constantly. (If I remember to take it.)
happy songs sung by the sweetest of angels. Even if it’s at 5 in the morning.
the natural talents I was blessed with.
the ability to develop other talents I desire that I was not blessed with. Or at least the determination to try.
my love of learning from such a young age.
pinterest… Yes, I said it. It can be an overwhelming pain in the butt sometimes, but it’s always a source of stress relief, inspiration, and motivation to keep on truckin’.
my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They give me the strength to move forward and have yet to let me down.
my Mother, who is the most amazing thrifter EVER and keeps me clothed in cute stuff. She’s blessed the lives of many with that same gift and she rocks.
a home that is safe, and in a good neighborhood.
being able to stay home with my kids and watch them grow and learn and laugh. It’s not always easy, but oh is it worth it.
so, so much more! I could sit here and count off the many many MANY things I’ve been blessed with, but I do think it’s time for me to get back to sewing. Those Christmas presents aren’t going to make themselves.
I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! Or lovely Thursday if you’re not from the US. Stay safe out there if you’re braving all the crazy sales today and tomorrow. I usually go later in the day to grab a few things when it’s all died down. I’m not one for crowds. Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back next week!
