Attitude of Gratitude..

There are so many things to be thankful for if we just stop and think. Or listen. Or look. Or feel. Or smell...

These are a few of mine, for today...:

** The carpeting for my rec-room is coming tomorrow morning..!!!!!!! I'm thankful I have a recroom, that it's getting finished, and that I can afford the carpet!!

** I can see some of my lawn. It may be brownish yellow. And really mucky. And wet. But it's not snow. I'm so thankful it's not snow. And that SPRING is coming SOON!!!!

** It's quiet. My children are all peacefully sleeping in their own beds. I'm thankful they're sleeping, that they have beds, and they aren't in mine--yet!

** I'm going to the movies with my kids tomorrow. I'm thankful I can budget this, that I get to spend time with my kids, and that it looks to be a good movie! (right Jen??--Horton!)

** My dad is well. I'm thankful I have a dad, and that he is well.

** I can smell burnt popcorn. Well, it stinks, but I'm thankful I can smell.

** Chocolate. Easter chocolate. Lots of it. 'Nough said!

Good list. You'll really enjoy the rec room. Kids will too!!

Horton will be a great movie for your kids...plenty of funny parts, great animation and awesome message(s).

Have Fun!

Love the pictures of Aliah...Jianna was just asking me a couple of days ago, "how do you know when your baby is hungry, or wet, or what is wrong"

That was a little hard to explain to her, but isn't it great when you get it right first try, and then they are so happy?
Of, course if the whole bed is soaking wet....that helps you figure it out pretty quick!

I love my rec room too, we just repainted it. I am thankful for good friends to come and help us paint. I am also thankful for chocolate, is there anything better?!!
P.T.L for your dad feeling better. Blessings to you all!!!!
