Thankful Thursday.

November always hits right about the time where I'm fed up with the candy and the clamoring to make Christmas lists and just want contentment. Just yesterday I took my littles to Target just to get one or two things and we're not halfway through the store and I am hearing about this that he saw on TV that he just has to get for Christmas and she is sitting in the cart pointing at twirly skirts that she must have and by the time we checked out I wanted to scream.

So when it hit me last night that Thankful Thursday was starting up again {and I know I say it every year but it shouldn't ever end really} I was glad because we need a little re-focusing time around here. Myself included. Time to count what we have and not what we don't.

So without further ado, this week I'm thankful for:

1. Sleeping in. Two days in a row we've all overslept. Yesterday the only one who got up and ready on time was T. Today we got up just in time to throw on some clothes, swallow down some cereal and make it to ECFE. While the morning is just a little busier and more chaotic {see #2.} when we oversleep, I know our bodies are needing it, so I'm thankful we get to.

2. Music. On the heels of that sleeping in, may I just tell you that gratitude was not the emotion I was feeling as I was rushing, yes rushing, into the van. My words were sharp. My patience was already shot. I turned on the radio and a cd was in and my littles just started singing along to some praise and worship music. "Where you go, I'll go, Where you stay, I'll stay."

I love that they love singing, I love that they know the words to praise songs and I love that hearing their little voices sing along has a way of turning my hustle, bustle busy to joy.

3. Family. I loved seeing extended family in Green Bay last weekend for the wedding. There is nothing like being gathered with the ones who know you and love you like no one else.

The morning after the wedding, my littles and I were downstairs in the hotel lobby eating breakfast. The three of us at the biggest table we'd put together the day before to accomodate everyone. Within 20 minutes the table is full of people and extra chairs pulled up and people standing. J and my dad and my aunts and my uncles and my cousins and my kids. I could have sat there all day in my pajamas with disheveled wedding hair just laughing, talking, reminiscing.

What are you especially thankful for this week?

I didn't get my act together to put a linky up but feel free to link to your own post in the comments or share in the comments what you're thankful for.

I love your list! I didn't post a Thankful Thursday just because I've been so frazzled - which just means I need to do it even more! Next week for sure though! Stop and thinking about what we are thankful for is so important.
