Thankful Thoughts

Lately I have been especially thankful for this man who walks endless circles to sooth a crying baby, makes sure I have food in my belly and water in my cup and knows that some days I just need a hug

for friends who understand that being a mom is the hardest job in the world and don't judge me when I need to vent

for blueberries the size of my head that taste even better than they look

for fishing trips with my favorite people

and for the promise of each new day with the first sign of light.

A thankful heart will turn what we have into enough! Happy Thursday my friends!

1 Month

Happy first month of life my sweet little.  You sleep with one or both hands up by your head, love it when your daddy walks around with you and hate being hot.  You have made us realize we are completely out of control and that small things are big accomplishments like brushing my teeth before lunch time and remembering to change my shirt with spit on it before getting groceries.  You love to cuddle, have taught me to slow down and have grown man size yawns.  We love you!

Lately I have been thankful for any time there is a sleeping baby in her bed, a husband who stays up late and gets up early so I can have my eyes closed just a few more minutes and family close enough for a day trip.

Gratitude can come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes it's hard to find, but if you are looking it will always show up.

Happy Thursday!  What have you been thankful for lately?
