Here I am for my final Attitude of Gratitude post. I have really enjoyed doing this all month long. I have realized that there is something to be grateful for in each day!
Today I enjoyed the sights and sounds of kids playing just becuse they can! It is Thanksgiving and there is lots to be thankful for today but above all today I loved that Cole and his cousins (of all ages and near and far) got to spend the day together playing! I wish this could happen more often becuase they will all grow up to fast!
Online shopping!!! I have dont 90% of my Christmas shopping online and I just LOVE this! I feel so much less stress by staying home in my warm home and shopping at my leisure. Now to wrap it all! :)
I am big on saving money where I can, especially on necessities like food! I really hate seeing food go to waste therefore I am always trying to find way to make multiple meals out of what meat or differnt way to use leftovers. Today I used my stock pile of frozen rotten bananas to make 18 loafs of banana bread - up 18!!! These will make great gifts for co works, friends and neighbors once I tie a home made holiday tag on them!
I also have a second thing to be grateful for today. I am grateful for the early evening hockey game that Cole and I got to watch Tim play in. He is a great hockey player and back in our days of just dating I just loved how he looked in his hockey uniform and I still get that same loving feeling today - 15 years later! He had a magnificent game!
This is going to be a love/hate for many people but I am loving listening to Christmas music! Its really puts me in a good mood :)
A good laugh. We always need a good laugh and when I need it the most I can always count on my dad!
I am so grateful for Cole. Today he says to me
"Mom, I always want you to be happy and I know how to make you happy"
I said " you do, how?"
He replise " When your mad, I will fix it so you will be happy. Your happy when I give you something. Your happy when I do something with you"
Sometimes he just melts my heart.
My life. I have had so many blessing from the very beginning of my life. I need to remember to not take everything I have for granted. Its about time spend together not things gathered and I believe in these 3 words, patience, priorities and perspective.
Thank you Precocious Paper for this wonderful month long challenge!
