Yep, I'm going to follow suit and post something I'm grateful for every day. Since I forgot yesterday, I'm going to do the biggest thing I'm grateful for right now, all in one, so that I'll have to dig a little deeper throughout the month.
I am grateful for this.
Since our wedding seven years ago, three fantastic, beautiful children have entered our home. They are each unique, special, and so precious to me. I am grateful that they are healthy, eager to learn, and eager to please. I'm grateful for their curiosity, even though it often ends in messes. I'm grateful for their independence, even if I have to wash the bathroom mirror every single day. I'm grateful for their sweet spirits that reminds me how amazing and fragile youth is, and how imagination is only as limited as we force it to be. I'm grateful for the nightmares that mean I get to hold my child for another night, and I'm grateful I can sing them lullabies and touch their soft hair and smell their sweet skin. I know so many people who don't have this opportunity, and my heart aches for them. My children are my greatest source of joy. They are my world and my life. I am so grateful that I was chosen to be their mother.
I'll try hard now to post something I'm grateful for every day until Thanksgiving, as a constant reminder of all I have that is special and wonderful to me. Some might be silly, some more sacred, but I am excited to discover just how much I have to be grateful for--probably enough that I'll still have a bunch I didn't even think of in 20 days!
