Thankful Thursday!

It has been a week of little sleep and lengthy to-do lists around here.  The long summer days are filled with big plans and the kids are filled to the brim with extra energy.  I am realizing that it is even more important to focus on thankfulness when the days are too full and fuses are shorter than usual.  It has been a week to purposely hone in on my true priorities even when other things seem more important; it is a battle for me!  

  • Today I'm especially thankful that we have all been healthy (no summer sickness yet!) 
  • I'm thankful for cooler days and thunderstorms.
  • I am very thankful that we will be spending a week with my family.
  • I am thankful to celebrate Father's day with a great daddy to our 3 kiddos.
  • I am thankful for random colored pen scribbles that I find mixed in with my "notes" in my journals.
  • I am thankful for big hugs from my super-affectionate little guy.
  • I'm thankful for throwing the baby into the air, and his squeals of laughter.
  • I'm thankful for a 4 year old doing jumping jacks.  It is extremely entertaining. 
  • I'm thankful for sweet, sweet baby words that I should correct but want to remember forever.
