Today, I am thankful for this little guy. He gets this face every time I tell him he can't do something. It's cute. Even though I feel like it's happening a lot these days:) Today this face appeared because I pulled him down from climbing the stairs. I let him climb them with me watching, and then it had been long enough. He didn't like that too much. He brings countless smiles and laughter every.single.day. He shows me love. I love him.
Today, I am thankful for Mickey Mouse Club House. This 24 minute show (on demand) allowed me to write thank you notes for Jack's first birthday presents. I know the latest reports: no TV until 2, but really? I think it's OK for my child to watch a little bit, and I feel thankful that Jack likes Mickey Mouse.
Today, I am thankful for my new Stella and Dot ring which showed up in the cutest package in my mailbox yesterday afternoon. It was as if Christmas came early, and even though I knew it was coming, it's always exciting to get something in the mail. (Maybe I should send more letters...) I know a ring sounds like such a superficial thing to be thankful for, but since I rarely buy for myself anymore, it is a very pretty, little treat. I am wearing it as I type this, and I love looking at it. Although, Jack really likes it too, which means I probably will only end up wearing it when I am not around him:)
Today, I am thankful for a girls beach weekend. Tomorrow evening, I will be departing Raleigh and heading to the beach with 3 other wonderful friends from my childhood. This trip is very much needed. I feel like lately I have been stuck in a rut in many ways in my life. I am praying that this weekend will a rejuvenation for all for of us. A time to laugh, cry, and just be together. I cannot wait:)
What are you thankful for today?
