Good morning, Mommy. What are you grateful for?
We are so blessed. And sometimes, when you’re killing it trying to make up for the business you lost last month, or when you are driving from work to track to take-out food, making it home five minutes after what is, in theory, your children’s bedtime, when life gets crazy like it does, it’s easy to lose sight of how very, very blessed we are.
So, what are you grateful for?
I’m grateful that my legs work. And my eyes and arms and fingers. I’m grateful that I am blessed with a body that will get up in the morning and take me where I need to go.
I’m grateful for my family. Always. Those wonderful, funny people who bring light and joy and a variety of mess into my life. Thank God for them. Husband, children, mom, sister, dad and various sisters-by-choice, wonderful humans that help get me through each day.
I am grateful that I have a home with a roof and a floor and central air to raise my children in. That our food is refrigerated, our water is clean and my wash machine is right upstairs.
I’m grateful for our dogs. How did I ever come to own three dogs? This was not the plan. But I love them and they make me laugh. And I’m grateful.
I’m grateful for new green buds on the trees and tulips and birds singing.
I’m grateful that I ever learned to put raisins in black tea. And almond butter on toast. And that Grandma Ruth gave me the REAL recipe for her famous lemon bread before she passed away.
I’m grateful for soft gray yoga pants, my husband’s extra-large white t-shirt, yummy soft slippers.
For front porches, fresh mornings, a cup of hot tea.
For a brand new day stretching out in front of me, just waiting for me to jump in.
So blessed, Mamma. We are so very blessed.
