Wednesday night I was hit hard with a stomach bug. Oh it was bad. Maybe worse than childbirth?!? Not sure. Regardless, it's been several years since I was so sick. As I laid in bed Wednesday night, I prayed that my little ones wouldn't get sick.
And I was reminded once again that I have so much to be thankful for!
Thankful that I get to squeeze this face every.single.day.
Thankful that I get to tuck this one into bed every.single.night.
Thankful for the luxury of grocery shopping and the ability to fill my refrigerator on a regular basis.
Thankful for a little chunk of earth to grow a garden.....even in the winter.
Thankful for a child healthy enough to play outside.
The door leading to our garage is right next to our kitchen. I painted part of the door with Chalk Board paint, it's a fun place to right messages and notes.
Every day for the month of November, I have seen this reminder on my kitchen door ~ 'today we are thankful for....'
I often forget that this is the season of intentional gratefulness. I sometimes have to stop myself in my busy tracks and say thank you. I take so much for granted. Motherhood has taught me to be intentional. To stop and pay attention. To notice the simple joys in life, because I might not have tomorrow....
