I've noticed several friends on Facebook posting something they are grateful for each day. I thought it was a nice idea for the month that has Thanksgiving in it and decided it would be a good idea for me to take a moment each day to realize how good I've got it. Since I'd like to be able to remember this long-term, I thought my blog was a better place to document it.
Day 1 - I am grateful that surely but slowly Des and Bri are using more words to express themselves.
Day 2 - I really want to say how grateful I am that Logan found the snail that he lost in my car earlier today. But, of course, he didn't find it...yet. So instead, I'm noting how thankful I am for the Southern California weather. Today was 80 degrees and sunny while other parts of the country are blanketed by snow.
Day 3 - I am so thankful for books. I love, love, love to read.
Day 4 - I am grateful for my husband who is a tremendous help with the kids and household duties and is also my soulmate.
Day 5 - I'm thankful we live near a large community of Ethiopians and my whole family gets to benefit from their friendships and experience their culture.
