Savoring a Good Day

5 years ago

I almost didn't write anything today but decided it would be better to post a quick note before I go to bed that to skip it...even if I couldn't find the perfect picture to include in the post. I'm feeling very thankful tonight and wanted to share. I know that's cheesy. Sorry in advance.

I'm thankful for my wonderful little family. 

I'm thankful every time I feel our little baby moving in my belly.

I'm thankful every time L says, "I love you so much mommy!"

I'm thankful for the feeling of her little arms hugging me around my neck before she got in bed tonight.

I'm thankful for the sheer joy I hear every time she laughs.

I'm thankful we've found a wonderful, supportive network of friends here in our new town. It's still counts as new after more than two years. 

I'm thankful for the amazing friends I have back home and around the country and around the world who are still in touch despite the distance.

I'm thankful I only have to wait two more months to see my parents. I can't wait to see the look on L's face when they arrive. 

Now it's time to sleep. I'm thankful I get to go to bed early tonight. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day!
