I know this might sound silly, but today I'm thankful for my thankful Thursday posts. A friend recently made a thankful Tuesday post and said she wishes she did it more often. I commented that I really actually enjoyed Thankful Thursday because it made me more thankful throughout the week because I was actively thinking of things to be thankful for. (that's a lot of alliteration isn't it?! ha ha)
I find that if I am actively thinking of things to post about on Thankful Thursday I am actually being more thankful for what I have. Sometimes it's so easy to get wrapped up in the bad and negative things going on in our lives and we end up wasting so much time focusing on them that we miss out on the good things in life. Even if it's only once a day I think about how blessed we are, that's one less negative thought I'm having.
In no particular order, here are some things I'm thankful for today:
+Bitsy's sunshiney happy mood this morning. She's had some rough days lately but she woke up this morning in a kissy giggly mood and that's ALWAYS something to be thankful for.
+Gabe's best friend came over yesterday for the afternoon. It was not only nice to see Dolan, but seeing Gabriel so happy to be with his friend was wonderful.
+Geo is off this weekend. We are excited to spend the weekend with him and he's thankful he will get a few days off to relax before getting back to the crazy schedule he's used to.
+I've recently been hired at the library for five hours (at least) a month. Even though it isn't a ton of money, it'll be good to get out of the house without the kiddos for a while.
Finally I'm thankful for our beautiful garden that not only feeds us, but has been feeding other people as well and will continue to do so over the course of the summer.
What are you thankful for today?
