As I said last week, I’m going to finish Tuesday Topics even though our host is taking some time off. This week’s theme is Three Things to be grateful for, which is quite timely given the mantras I posted about yesterday! I also always look at things from the week to be happy and grateful for each Friday, but we can never talk about the good things in our life enough right? So here are three big things I’m grateful for.
(1) Never having to pay for childcare. My mom has graciously watched Ollie for us since I first went back to work and we are forever thankful. We do pay for his school, but as far as childcare goes we are so, so blessed. My parents also willingly watch him on other occasions if we need, as does Nate’s parents and his sister. They all do it because they love him and spending time with him. My mom always says she gets paid in hugs and kisses. And I’m just forever grateful.
(2) A husband who loves to cook. Yes I brag about this quite often, but I am seriously so lucky that he loves cooking so much and keeps us so well fed. I’m not even sure when we shifted to having him be the one to do the majority of the cooking anymore, but he has for years now. And he has perfected some recipes that are so good. It has made my life far less stressful. I am the one to do all the cleaning, but I’ll gladly do it to enjoy delicious meals!
(3) This blogging community. I am SO grateful for all of you who come here and read my babbles and share in my life. I have been doing this for many years now and I’m still in awe of the connections I’ve made and the long lasting friendships, even those that span across the miles. I hope to be here for many years to come and I am pretty sure I will be, you all fuel my fire and I thank you so much!
And those are just some of the things I’m eternally grateful for. I just wanted to give them special attention in this month of thankfulness.
