Thankful #2

#3: I'm thankful for my amazing extended family. They're there for the every day things, like kids' soccer games, Sunday dinners, and babysitting, and they're there when life throws a wrench in our plans, offering an ear to listen, a ride home, or a warm place to sleep.

 #4: I'm thankful to have a job. Even though there are times I'd rather be anywhere but there, and there are days when I have the rudest customers ever (ahem, yesterday.) But I'm glad to have a way to help my family financially.

#5: I'm thankful to have a roof over my head. We're in the process of moving and the stress of packing up everything we've ever owned is making me realize just how much we have. We're so lucky to be able to buy whatever we want, when we want (within reason, of course.) So, we've been downsizing our things, donating what we can, hoping that someone else can benefit from it.

Day 1:  So thankful to have two little boys to snuggle each and every day.  One who wakes up so happy to see me sleeping nearby, and is completely ecstatic to crawl up on my lap, while yelling "mo, mo" and signing for milk.  And the other who loves coming home to tell me about his day and hasn't yet grown "too big" for my hugs and kisses.

Day 2:  I'm thankful for my hubby who works hard every day to provide for us, helps take care of little ones, and is still willing to cook dinner for us all.
