So I had it in mind that I would spend this week focusing on what I’m thankful for. But here it is TUESDAY and it’s late and I’m tired and feeling lame.
But I am thankful, donchaknow, and I really, really want to do this.
So tonight I take the easy route. No pictures, no witty ramblings, just bare bones gratitude.
I am thankful for Mama Syd and Papa Chris asleep in the next room, who drove 26 hours straight to be here, with us, for just a few days. I love those guys.
I am thankful for Susan’s friendship. Without it I’m pretty sure I would curl up and die. She keeps me real and has always and will always, push me closer to Christ and holiness. I sure do like that about her. And today is her birthday. I am so thankful she was born. “Skip around the room!”
I am thankful for a husband who deep cleaned the kitchen and kids room today while I was gone. He also fed the kids and then made me lunch, too. He deserves a trophy but what he gets is to leave at 4 am tomorrow morning to go hunting with my dad. Close enough.
I am thankful for a roof over my head and a space heater and a warm bed while I listen to the wind howl and know the temperature is well below zero. ZERO folks. Brrrrrr.
I am thankful that Monday did her business outside tonight and not in my living room.
So very thankful for snow tires.
To be continued . . .
