I am a little behind on my Thankfullness posts. But here are the things I have been thankful for the past few days…
Vetrans, and all those serving our country:
With Vetrans day being this past week, I have really began to reflect on the courage that so many men and women have that are serving, and have served our country. That is something I know I would never be brave enough to do and I thank all those who have been apart of ever fighting for us. Thanks!
I am so grateful for parties:
Ever since I was a little girl, my grandparents would call me “The Party Girl”. Every time they had a family gathering I would show up in my party outfit, a big smile on my face, ready for fun and games! Today, I am still the same! I love parties because it allows a chance for everyone you love to get together and celebrate something special. My niece’s birthday party was this past week, my sister’s birthday was yesterday, and my nephew’s party is tonight. I love that we get to celebrate these fun things because it brings us all together!
I may be a bit of a clean freak. Okay, maybe I am not so freaky about it now that I have a child, but I still like to keep things pretty clean. The other night, after a typically exhausting day, I was getting ready for bed and wondering how I got through the day. Charli was a more emotional than usual, maybe a little more rowdy than normal, and I was just ready to go to bed! I went to get something off of the nightstand and noticed how dusty I had let it get. Then I browsed to the edge of the nightstand where I saw cute, tiny fingerprints all along the corner. I just smiled. I know exactly what she was reaching up there for, the remote controll!! But it just made me giggle a little because no matter how hard motherhood can be sometimes, and how exhausting, little things like this make me love and appreciate being a mother more than anything! I am grateful for the fingerprints I see everywhere in my house. The nightstand, the kitchen table, the stainless steel fridge and dishwasher!! Her fingerprints remind me of how lucky I am to be a mother!
Today in church I had to speak! Ugh, I know! But actually the topic I spoke on couldn’t have been more perfect for this time of year – Gratitude.
