As we are now on the countdown to my favorite holiday, I have decided to post each day the things for which I am thankful! No certain number, just what I am thankful for each day.
I light of my recent post, I am thankful for my husband. He is my superhero. By the standards of today's culture, he may not be the most G.Q., make the most money, be the most popular in a room, or even the most intelligent, but he is my man. I have written about him before on this post. I love the way we are commited to each other- even when the road we are on is wayyyyyy off road (pun very much intended)!
As I type this post, my yard is full of children all playing together in the awesome autumn like weather. The ages range from 12 down to 4 and did I mention they were all playing together?? As a mother of 4 there are often days that I long for a day when all is a peace. Well, right now I have 7 (or 8, maybe 9) kids in my yard and there is peace. There is also thankfulness.
Today, I am also thankful for a clear schedule. Other than my kids doing school today, we have nothing pressing to do. I was in my jammies until 3pm and will likely return to them shortly (I did get up and take a shower). On days like this, I live for comfort. I am thankful for comfort as well. I think that's a biggie that we all take for granted daily.
Since I started thinking of what to be thankful for, I have come up with about 1000 things, but I will save them for another day. Who knows- tomorrow I may feel a little less than thankful and in need of lots of reminders.
But for today, I am thankful that today is a good day.
