Grains of Gratitude

I said this was going to be my Sunday thing - the gratitude post. Thanks, Michelle, for the idea. This week is tough for me. Not because I have nothing to be grateful for. But because it's been a rough week. Especially for some friends and family that I care so much about. It's hard to think of all the good stuff when I can't stop thinking of the pain that some of those near and dear to me are going through. I need to do it anyway.
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not great at routines or sticking to ANYTHING, so I want to stick with this. SO, here goes...what I'm grateful for tonight:

* a roof over my head

* good health

* a good husband who is faithful and takes care of us

* We joined our church today and that felt really great. This church has become such a big part of our lives. Our kids go there for daycare/preschool and we also worship there. The church is really close to our house and everyone there is so nice. It's nice to make it "official" that we are members.

* Our friends hosted a fun party tonight and the kids were able to splash in the kiddie pool. This is one of Brenna's favorite activities and it made her day. When I asked her not to stand on the swing set on a particularly narrow bar, she came to me and said, "But Mommy, I really want to climb on the bar, it's my DREAM. And I want to make it come true." It was too funny! My answer was still no but all of us parents had to give her props for her originality. None of the parents there had heard that excuse. "It is my dream."

Well - that's it for now. Short and sweet.

Have a great week.

How funny about Brenna saying it was her dream! That is a new one for sure!
