|Thankful for my sweet family. :)|
Today I'm thankful for the winter weather. Yes even though all the water buckets were frozen solid this morning and I had to break them up with a shovel and I HIT myself in the shin with said shovel, I'm still thankful for the change in seasons. I grew up with one season. 70 degrees and sunny, so a little cold (okay freezing) weather doesn't bother me one bit.
I also ran quickly back inside after the morning chores and warmed myself by a space heater for, oh I don't know, an hour? So maybe the weather bothered me a bit.
Moving on. I'm thankful my kids had a great first day back at school. I missed them terribly, but they came home with big, sweet smiles on their frozen faces.
I'm thankful my kids appreciate the little things in life. Like the fact that I made this for my daughter last night after she went to bed, and she gave me a big sweet hug and excitedly thanked me for it this morning. It's a case for her DS and it was really simple to make, but it warmed my heart that she appreciated it so much and was sooo grateful.
N-e-way, I'm thankful again for my Dad who blessed us immensely by gifting us all the materials to hook up our wood stove.
I'm thankful that my almost 7 year old is growing up into a responsible young man who has now taken on the morning and nightly task of feeding these beasts.
And I just typed breasts above instead of beasts.
I think that's my cue to go to bed. Good night. :)
