The month is over and my heart continues to be full of thanks for all of the little, and not so little, things that fill our world. November is always a special blessing to me.
11.21.13 - Day 21
Today I am thankful for my girls. These women know all of my deepest secrets and love me anyway. They've been there for the highest of highs and the lowest of lows and are each such treasures to me. I am deeply thankful for them and blessed to call them my dearest friends.
11.22.13 - Day 22
I am thankful for the gift of time. The kind of time you need to take a deep breath and the time to enjoy cheap wine and pizza with friends simply because you have no other commitments. This is a gift that should never be taken for granted. You'll never know how special it is until you don't have it. I'm so thankful!
11.23.13 - Day 23
Today I am wholeheartedly and deeply thankful for this wonderful little creature. She is equal parts sassy and sweet, but most importantly she is healthy and thriving in the world. This girl never makes parenting easy, but she always makes it worth it. Bob for President!!!!
11.24.13 - Day 24
I am thankful for forgiveness. I have tons of experience with saying "I'm sorry" and tomorrow will be no exception. I am cranky and entirely unreasonable today, but I am thankful that they'll still love me when the sun rises again. Everyone has THOSE days and today is mine.
11.25.13 - Day 25
I am thankful for a day with no lunchboxes, no homework and no pouting about bedtime. 'Tis the season for family!!
11.26.13 - Day 26
My heart is abundantly grateful for my amazing son. He is a great student, a talented athlete and an exceptional human being. I didn't think I was ready to be a Mom when he came along, but God knew better. Every day of my life has been richer since this precious child entered the world.
11.27.13 - Day 27
I am thankful that today is my Friday and it's almost over.
11.28.13 - Day 28
Today I am thankful for the whole dang thing. The beautiful Thanksgiving mass this morning, my sweet little helpers in the kitchen, a bountiful meal and a family walk to the beach for playtime. We are deeply and beautifully blessed. Happy Thanksgiving friends!
11.29.13 - Day 29
I am thankful that there's not one thing on our list that required me to go shopping in the middle of the night, trample anyone or curse my way through a parking lot.
11.30.13 - Day 30
I am thankful for this month that draws to mind our need to give Thanks in all that we do. Our little Thankful Tree was overflowing when we took off the tags to make way for another tree today. We have so, so much to be grateful for all year long and my family's hearts are well prepared for the beauty of Advent tomorrow. I have been abundantly blessed and am deeply thankful all year long.
