This morning I felt a bit, well....annoyed. Four loud, fidgety kids and more rain! Then, a split second later it hit me: I'm surrounded by four amazing children I love more than life itself and we have a lovely, warm, dry roof over our heads. I've got a delicious cup of coffee in front of me and get to start preparations for my loving husband's birthday tomorrow. Next month we'll have been married 9 years! He has, after a long and difficult season of unemployment, a new job which he loves and we're so grateful for! I told Amarra that I loved her the other day and she sighed at me and rolled her eyes, "Mommmm, I KNOW. You tell me EVERY DAY." I could not help but laugh. I love my family and am so thankful for them, and I'm pretty sure they like me alright, too. I've got a new yarn project I'm working on for Joel...I am always brought a piece of joy and comfort when I pick up my knitting or crocheting, I simply can't help it! My Little Man is healthy and growing after such a rough start and some bumps along the way. I have amazing and wonderful friends to support me...........The list could go on and on and on. What it all boils down to is that I am so fortunate. I am so blessed. And when the little things start to get to me all I need to do is look around to realize what I've got and, suddenly, I am so thankful.
