Week of Gratitude {Day 1}

I thought with Thanksgiving coming up I would do a week of gratitude. Let’s face it, my last post was a bit of a Debby Downer. So, we need to get some FUN, REAL, and maybe SILLY things that I am thankful to have in my life.

1. Ok, well let’s start off with my best friend. I know…. You are tired of hearing about how much I adore him but really I do. People have often said “I don’t know how y’all do it”….. well to answer that…. It is simple we do it together, the good and the bad, we do it together. Wednesday was a HARD day for me. It was one thing after another. I was sad and Jason knew it. He had Thursday off from work. He knew I had things that needed should get done but he said “let’s play!” So that is just what we did. We went to Disneyland kid free and rode on the BIG kids rides. We laughed, I smiled, we ate a YUMMY lunch and you know what.... it was JUST what I needed! I am thankful for a best friend that knows exactly what I need.

2. I am so grateful for unlimited long distance and my daily chats with my sister. I hate that we live so far away from each other BUT I am thankful that neither of us ever skips a beat…. If we need each other we call..... If we need to laugh we call….. If we need to cry we call.

3. I am grateful for BIG purses that can hold all of my junk!

4. I am grateful for all of you! No really, your comments often times are just what I need to “hear”. You are such kind and supportive women. {and for those that aren’t well… don’t send me emails OK!}

5. I LOVE being one of “those” moms. I am grateful to belong to an elite and special group of mothers. There isn’t a pass word or special hand shake but when we see each other or meet for the first time we know. We instantly know and bond over trials, loss, or funny stories.

6. I am grateful for Archer Farms Dark Chocolate Drizzle caramel clusters popcorn…… to die for!!!

7. I am grateful for GPS! Heaven knows I always get lost even with it. I would hate to see what happens with out it. Wink!

8. I am grateful for my Children’s smiles….. They make my heart smile.

Here's to {Day 1}...... stay tuned for LOTS more!

I LOVED this post and totally relate. I sort of did something similar the other day because sometimes it's just good to remember the good.

I am sorry you had such a hard day the other night. I SO get it. Yesterday at church, Derick had to be taken out which is never a good thing. We had it out in a small classroom where he was put into time out. He gets violent when that happens, but I held my ground. I was glad no one came in during the screaming. That would have just put the icing on it all! I never take him to the store if I can help it. Not because of a chair, but because of the melt-downs. They are something else! I so relate to the difficulty of not being mobile sometimes. That's why school is SUCH a blessing and we spend summer next to family. I don't think I could cope otherwise.

Know that this little reader is so grateful for your grateful post and to a be a part of your 'club'. No handshake required. I love it. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Best friends (especially those we happen to be married to!) who understand just what we need when we need it ... are the BEST.

Btw, I emailed you yesterday, but I don't know if I have a current email or not. Could you please email me if you didn't get it, and I'll resend?? susan at susankellerphotography dot com.
