It’s been a long time since I’ve done a gratitude post… too long! Â IÂ know that everyday holds a multitude of things to be thankful for, but admittedly, I’ve been too busy being cranky and overwhelmed to pay much attention. Â Today (Monday), for whatever reason, God is highlighting so many little moments throughout my day I’d be remiss if I didn’t record them. Â And since I’ve been slacking on my blog posts, I figured what better place to share than here?
Today (Monday), I’m grateful for:
~ a workout that left me motivated to keep working out. Â a trainer who’s as passionate aboutÂ my strength as he is about his own. Â a husband who rearranged his morning schedule in order to make it possible for me to get to the gym.
~ friendly salespeople at StrideRite who helped us exchange some defective shoes for the “super-speediest” ones we could find.
~ for the chance to attend kindergarten chapel where I can watch sweet babes raise their hands to worship God, pray earnestly for sick classmates, and receive awards for being awesome.
~ for gymnastics, which gives my active boys the opportunity to channel their energy, learn new skills, and be proud of themselves. Â and for Ryder’s sweet coach who told me I have “one great kid.” Â 🙂
And since I didn’t publish this post yesterday, today (Tuesday), I’m grateful for:
~ MOPs… for friends whose messes are just as beautiful as mine.
~ for a breezy day that’s warm enough to open the windows and air out the house a bit. Â as much as I’ve whined about winter forgetting to show up for work, I can’t complain too much… especially since so many of my friends are freezing their tails off in the midwest.
~ for the 100th day of school. Â because who doesn’t love hearing about all the things their kids got to count, sort, and EAT 🙂
~ for neighbors with boys the same age as mine. Â especially when they invite one over for a playdate, allowing me to get some housework done… and watch Henry Hugglemonster with the other.
What are you grateful for?
