I Am Grateful For . . .
I often find myself taking life's everyday blessings for granted. Although sometimes it seems like the bad overpowers the good, if I really take the time to stop and think about it, I have so many things to be grateful for in my life.
Of course one of the biggest blessings I have is my family and the older (and further away from them) I get the more I love and cherish my time with them. But, if I had to choose one thing that I was most grateful for, it would be the opportunity I have to be a mother. My little boy has been what I like to call the textbook definition of a "hard baby." Although he has grown out of the colic, and acid-reflux, we still go through some crazy days.
Lately, after he goes to bed, I reminisce with my husband about the little things (good or bad) that happened during the day. And even when I am telling him about my horrible trip to Walmart when I had to leave my cart in the middle of the isle and carry my screaming toddler out of the store while he knocks over and spills a whole can of lotion off of one of the display's...we have fun laughing about it together and it helps me realize how much I love him...even his wild personality!
What are you most grateful for?
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving weekend!
