So it’s been a while since I’ve blogged … Sorry :/
Summer was so fun & I was too lazy to write anything
Today & everyday I try to remember to be thankful …. Thankful for even the annoying things. So here’s a little list of a few things to be “Thankful” for
Laundry – literally my biggest nemesis ….. But I should be thankful I actually have so many clothes that my laundry piles up & then I actually get to wash them in these amazing inventions called washers & dryers!!!! I mean I could have to hand wash everything & hang it to dry which would really result in no clean clothes ever in this house.
Toddler tantrums – although my threenager is fairly easy (especially since she’s my one & only) there are times that I would love to drop her off at daddy’s work & run to the wine bar….. And again I remind myself to be thankful for each & every previous minute with each other. My threenager is healthy, happy & not sitting in a hospital battling a rare cancer or disease, where I would be wishing she was just throwing a tantrum for more cookies.
Paying Bills- I always dread paying the bills as I’m sure everyone else does too…. But good news is that we can afford to actually pay for these things called luxury Bills!!! Mortgage, cell phone, water, electricity, someone to pick up all my garbage that I just have to leave on the curb!!! I’m not walking miles to a village well, living without electricity or hauling my garbage somewhere to dispose. Not to mention I’m even using my cell phone to write this blog!
Getting gas- in a perfect imaginary world my car would be self sufficient & never need maintenance. My favorite thing to do is pull into the gas station with my screaming threenager begging to get out of the car while I pump gas! Buuuuut how blessed am I to have not only a car but a working car! I’m not having to haul my little one around on public transportation or hitch rides from family & friends.
Political differences – I’m the total opposite of wanting to discuss politics but can I just say that here in America we are so blessed beyond belief!?? We may not agree on issues or who we want in office & Yes we have had our attacks on the country, we have shootings, crime, crazy people galore buuuut we also are not having to flee for our lives on a daily basis. We are able to pick up our smart phones, dial a 3 digit number that will bring someone literally at our beckoning call to come help me in case of an emergency. I’m not running on the countryside looking for a boat to board my family to hopeful safety.
This list could go on forever, but hopefully it just reminds us to be an little or a lot more thankful today;)
