While doing some editing for a previous post, I read through the blog I had linked to. I read her home page, went through a variety of her posts, and noticed she had a Thankful Thursday blog post. I love her idea and it falls in line with what I want to do with my blog. I want to use my blog as a way to remember the things that are easy to forget. More importantly, I want to make a conscious effort to be more thankful. Writing it down, typing it out, living it outloud.
Today, I'm thankful for things that make my kids happy and my life easier. Although the two don't always go together. For instance, the snow we got last night = Kids are thrilled! Doesn't really help me though. But they have been waiting so long for snow. The talk of snowmen and sledding has consumed them. I'm glad we made it this far without it, but it's nice that they get to experience it for a little while. Secretly, I was hoping for a school delay, but I suppose there's still time for that.
