Giving Thanks

Things I’m giving thanks for today, in no particular order:

1. Cute kids

2. A cute husband who “rode herd,” while I was in The Cookbook Writing Zone. I was able to turn it in a day early. (Apparently, I surprised a certain editor that I was on schedule. C’mon…. I want the A.)

3. Aforementioned editor who has been very kind and patient with me during this process.

4. Sunshine and cool breezes.

5. Good friends who’ve encouraged me continually throughout this past month.

6. Netflix.

7. A soft bed.

8. The ability to write — and checking off something from My Bucket List.

9. New opportunities and an open calendar.

10. Jesus.

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.

– Psalm 9:1-2

  4. I’m thankful for my new little one, my husband and family for their help, and for Christ’s strength that got me through the first month of mommyhood! :)

  5. Today I am thankful that the exploding molasses bottle didn’t do any damage… that my lawnmower started on the first try…. that my beautiful daughter is sound asleep under my roof (teenager — not getting up anytime soon)…. and that on this 4th of July weekend, I get to celebrate the fact that my brother returned home from Iraq almost three years ago, safe, sound and whole and with no loss of life or serious injuries to those under his command. The small and large blessings.

  6. Congratulations on getting the book in on time. I know it must be such a relief. What a sense of accomplishment you must have. :)

  7. I am celebrating the bounty of our garden. I love walking into the garden with an empty bowl and coming out with an overflowing one.

    I am thankful for my husband and my wonderful children.

    I am thankful for making a difficult decision about priorities and the freedom in my schedule that I’ve created for myself this summer. It makes the summer so much more enjoyable for all of us.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
