So during the month of November people write daily posts about what they are thankful for. I like this. I am not posting every day, but rather writing things down daily and will post every Friday or Saturday during the month. So here is what I am thankful for from November 1st – 8th.
What are YOU thankful for today?!?!
1st – Emailing with my sister. Her and I email each other pretty much every day. It just makes me so happy and I am so thankful to have her and be able to “talk” to her every day. Whether it is something serious, a recipe, a funny story, life in general, or a joke that I know only she will laugh at….it makes me feel close even though we don’t see each other all the time.
2nd – Last minute weekend visits from our family!! It was so great to have my parents plan a last minute trip to see us today! It was a perfect…and I think helped one sick little kid feel better.
3rd – Dots, aka, Tim Bits. Come on, I think we can all admit “dots” make everything better and are something we should be thankful for!
4th – Having a job where I can take the day off, even if unpaid, when my son is sick and my work doesn’t question it or get mad. I know many people, including my husband, cannot easily take time off unexpectedly. I feel lucky that I at least have the option to put my family first.
5th – Dancing!! I came home after a loooooong day at work and was tired and it was yucky out and as I walk through the door Henry comes running to me and says “DANCE”!! You want to dance? OK! So I literally throw my stuff down and Henry and I dance. How can you not be thankful for that.
6th – For being able to sit down and have a dinner with Henry and Terry!! Sure tonight it was just grilled cheese and soup. But for two years we have only had a handful of family dinners and now we have one almost every night! Tonight we talked about his day at school. We are fairly certain he was trying to tell us that a big kid would not let Henry ride the bike at school. “Big Kid. No No Bike. Me. No No Bike.” You guys…..I am SO thankful for this.
7th – For finding the most awesome wee-ooo, wee-ooo truck (aka a Fire Truck) for Henry! And the best part was it was on sale and I had coupons putting this $30 truck at only $10!! Henry has been asking for this truck for awhile….he will be so pumped to get it Christmas morning!!
8th – For the guy in front of me at the Starbucks drive through who paid for my coffee and bagel this morning!!! THANK YOU!! That is such a kind gesture!! I was so thankful and continued the chain and paid for the person behind me. What great holiday spirit!! I am truly thankful to you stranger (and others like you) and your act of kindness!
