Good morning!

This week I was thankful for:

Day 1:

  • Impromptu ice cream parties
  • My tribe
  • Being able to exercise at work. Although next time I need to remember a towel.

Day 2:

  • Packing lists. 
  • The Dollar Store and how easy it is to park, grab two kids out of the car, and purchase the wipes I forgot to pack plus a few “necessary” snacks.
  • The Disney Pandora station.

Day 3:

  • Sunscreen.
  • People nice enough to tow our boat to a gas pump and when the gas pump was out of gas go all the way back home to bring gas. 
  • Floatation devices.

Day 4:

  • FaceTime.
  • Cora stopped crying for the last 15 minutes of our drive home. 
  • Reuniting with Dan and having family cuddle sessions.

Day 5:

  • While eating dinner Ina told me, “Yum, mom, you did a really good job on this chicken.” She has now figured out the way to my heart.  
  • Cora is still happy to sit in a stroller that isn’t moving for 30 minutes or so. I know those days are numbered, so I am thankful for them while they last.
  • Catching up with high school friends and watching them as moms, even though I still think of them standing by their locker or wearing a basketball jersey.

Day 6:

  • Library books. I checked out The Happiness Project and Wild and am excited to read them.
  • Eight years of marriage! 
  • My phone screen is fixed! I can use it without risking my fingers being stabbed with glass.

Day 7:

  • Corn on the cob. Or as Ina calls it, “corn on ma-cob"
  • Bucket lists. 
  • Grace and mercy and love and forgiveness.

What are you thankful for?
