Thankful Thursday. Week 1.

Right now, I am thankful for....

1. The sun shining outside and the seemingly slowed down process of the changing of the seasons.

2. Family. Of course J and the kids. My dad, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandma....

But today, especially my dad. He really is the best. And he has had so much these last two years. So, so much. Today, for the first time in two years I heard something in his voice that reminded me of him before my mom was sick.

3. Friends. Near and far.

My friends Zach and Sarah were here with their boys this past week and spending time with them on Monday was wonderful. It was so great to sit and talk and drink coffee and eat lunch and let our kids play.

And friends near too. Friends that come over and feel so comfortable in my house I don't feel the need to clean up or try for perfection. They dig in the fridge for string cheese for their kids or the cupboards for snacks. My hope has always been that my home be a welcoming place for all, and having friends that feel welcome here makes me happy.

4. Health.

There is sickness all around us and I feel blessed and very thankful that for the most part our family has stayed healthy. T was home a couple days this week with a cold and a very lowgrade fever but is back up and running now.

5. Where we are at.

Though sometimes I complain or wish J didn't have to work late when he has to or could take an extra day off here and there, he has work that pays him well to afford us our bills and our lifestyle. We have healthcare. I am able to stay home and do freelance things and run our household.

There is always enough food in the cupboards and the fridge. Our kids can be in activities and preschool and swim lessons. We don't have to think twice about taking anyone to the doctor.

Not only am I thankful for all of that but I'm also thankful that J works as hard as he does to provide what is needed (and more) for us. And he never complains about it, he just does it.

Have you shared what you're thankful for right now?

Thank you God for all these things (and more) this week!

I am thankful for the nice weather too - I had to step outside to help the clinic across the street and was amazed at the warmth! And it's getting warmer this weekend too! We can put off winter for a bit, that's just fine with me!

I'm thankful for...
my husband's steady employment & that he likes what he does.

the encouragement I receive from him to continue subbing, so that I can have a flexible schedule.

having the privilege of being a mom to N & K. It is a blessing I do not want to take for granted.

a healed back for my 16 yr old! She broke it in January & today her core is stronger than ever before.

an awesome partner on this journey of parenthood and marriage =)
