Today I’m thankful that our realtor called to tell us that our closing got moved up to next Friday.
Today I am thankful for my Seester folding the clean clothes at my house.
Seriously, she’s an amazing laundry folder. I love it when she folds it. It’s all neat and tidy. Everything is uniform.
I’m not even kidding.
Today I am thankful for Starbuck’s Venti Iced Vanilla Latte’s with light ice. Yep. sure am.
Today I am thankful for the opportunity I have had to go back to college.
Tonight I begin my final 5-week class and then I will graduate on December 15. As I think back on the past almost two and a half years, I am reminded that when I started this process, I thought that this day was so far away.
It’s a pretty big deal to me that I am actually finishing college. I have often struggled in my life with completing anything. I begin projects, crafts, books, chores, etc. and just give up somewhere in the process and never complete it. I even tease that I couldn’t even finished pregnancy so I had to have c-sections. (I know, probably not funny, but true!)
So, I am proud of myself for persevering and not giving up. There have been a couple of times that I just didn’t think I’d make it. But, here I am at the end of this particular journey. Almost finished. Then end is in sight!
Today I am thankful that my children have both sets of grandparents living about five miles apart from each other. (And soon we will live almost smack dab in the middle of them!) My kids are truly blessed because both sets love them and enjoy spending time with them.
Today I am thankful for the times that I get to spend one-on-one time with my kids. They are just growing up so quickly. The times I get to spend with them are so precious. Before I know it, they’ll be gone and moving on with their own lives just like their older brother. I don’t ever want to take these times for granted.
Today I’m thankful for all the people in my life, and my children’s lives, who love my children. Ever since The Lovely Daughter was born, we have had lots of people who I know I can count on to watch my kids, when needed, who pray for my kids, who enjoy spending time with them. I know so many others who don’t have family and friends close to be there for their kids. I’ve always had those kinds of people. I think that’s why my kids are so well adjusted in social situations…because they’re used to spending time with people who aren’t always just us. I know there are those in our lives who would drop whatever they are doing to be there should my kids need someone. That’s what, or WHO, I’m thankful for today…and everyday!
Today I am thankful that my Seester and her family have moved back to Indiana. I’m glad she’s here because she’s my bestest friend. I’m glad she’s here because I’m excited that we can really get to know each others kids better.
Today I am thankful for my Savior. I just cannot imagine living my life without personally knowing the Creator of All, the Prince of Peace, the One who gave His life for me, the One who sustains me and who loves, accepts and forgives me over and over and over again.
