Thankful for my almost 2 year old who is kinda sorta sleeping through the night. She'd been doing it for a while, I got accustomed to it, then BAM...she switched it up. Now, hopefully, we're back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Thankful for my 7 year old who comes into my room in the middle of the night...EVERY NIGHT, to cuddle with me. I tease and tell her to stay in her bed but I secretly love it and cuddle right back.
Thankful for my 8 year old who won her student council election. It was a huge boost to her confidence and put the importance of serving her community in the forefront of her mind.
Thankful that my kid still gets sad over the loss of my dad, which shows that he's still in her heart. The fact that I can share stories without breaking down proves that I'm stronger than I think.
Thankful that my girls have their sisters. They fight, even the little one gets her licks in, but they have each other's backs when it counts. I love watching their bond strengthen day by day.
Thankful that I'm not in this alone. My husband was out of commission this weekend and I realized that I'm not about that single parent life. It's tough and I give praise to all who have no choice but to do it. Kudos to the single mamas and papas out there, doing the damn thing for themselves and their children.
Thankful for my family and friends who enjoy squeezing into my house for some crack wings and cake, to celebrate my babies birthdays.
TMI ALERT!!! Thankful that my husband and I can find the time to get it in where we can fit it in. With 3 kids it gets exhausting and most days we just don't have the energy but when I walk in the room...candles burning and Marvin Gaye on Spotify...Holla!!!
Thankful for a year of ups and downs. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Thankful that God grants me patience, most days, to get through this thing called life. It isn't always easy, but with love and support you make it or you fake it till you make it.
Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
