Little Things

Everyone has those days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and nothing goes right, me included.  I am trying to focus on the good instead of getting bogged down in the bad (though I have only been moderately successful thus far), because not all days are good, but there is good in everyday, right?  So I am trying to be thankful for all the small things in life that make every day good.  Here are a few:

*carpool naps*

*gracie’s new obsession with makeup and how she puts lipstick ALL OVER her mouth (and face)*

*movies on demand*

*the way brantley is learning to be confident and embrace her strengths.  she is a little self-conscious of her height (she’s very short compared to a lot of girls her age), but she told me the other day, “I may be small, but I’m really smart!” atta girl.*

*freshly brewed coffee*

*family movie night, complete with s’mores over the gas fireplace*

*actually looking forward to going to church every sunday*

*the way ben won’t go to bed without saying goodnight and giving a hug to every family member, including the dogs, without fail*

*being able to fill the grocery store conveyor belt with fresh, healthy food for my family*

*our new nightly ritual of hot tea, complete with honey, lemon, mint, and ginger*

*the sound of my children praying together, without being prompted*

*snuggly puppies*

*new shampoo and aromatic shower gel*

*mounds and mounds and mounds of freshly washed clean laundry, to clothe my family in*

*dirty martinis with extra olives*

*good friends that will meet for coffee at a moment’s notice*

*the amazing imaginations of children*

*waking up early, realizing it’s saturday, and then being able to go back to sleep for a while

*the way scott is very affectionate towards me in front of the kids*

*being complimented on something I am very self-conscious about*

What little things are you thankful for each day?
