Thursday 13

Tonight I had writers block.

It was a bit of an overwhelming day - new school, lots of new information, not a lot of sleep, traffic, etc. My brain is actually too full to process it all right now, so rather than a bunch of babble, I found a Meme (pronounced Meeeem, not Me-me, like my grandmother) that I am going to participate in.

The Thursday 13 - a list of anything on your mind

So I will list 13 things I am thankful for, in no particular order:

1. I am sincerely thankful for my amazing husband. He is funny, he is strong, he is a wonderful daddy. I could not have asked for a more perfect partner in crime.

2. I am thankful that I have fond memories of my childhood. I can picture my bright, sunny bedroom, laughing and playing games with my family, my numerous kittens, skipping like Dorothy Gale in my ruby red slippers... I hope that I am able to provide such great memories for my daughter as she grows up.

3. I am so thankful for Isabel. She brings me joy everyday, and I never knew that I was in any way incomplete until she arrived.

4. I am thankful for my wonderful friends. My very best friend and I have known each other since kindergarten. Old friends and new friends and mama friends... I am very blessed.

5. I am thankful for music. Not only does it soothe the savage beast inside my child (haha), but it always finds a way to match my mood, to say the things I couldn't put into words.

6. I am thankful for clean sheets. There is absolutely nothing like climbing in bed when you have clean sheets.

7. I am thankful for my mom teaching me how to cook, sew, be kind, be a mother, and so many other wonderful things. I appreciate her much more now that I am a mommy, too.

8. I am thankful that there were many, many people in my life that taught me about God. I can not imagine a world without faith, without that picture of peace and strength. I am thankful to always have someone to lean on when I fee I can't go another step, or to celebrate with and praise for the good.

9. I am thankful for my ability to read. And I am thankful for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Madeline L'Engle in particular.

10. I am thankful for food... Yummy, warm, sweet, gooey food :)

11. I am thankful that my husband has wonderful parents that raised Him right and continue to shower love on us.

12. I am thankful for my iPad... I know that is very superficial, but without it I would probably not be writing this blog right now.

13. I am thankful for my new job. I am excited to teach new students and also to be able to spend more time with my own little student at home who learns and grows in the blink of an eye!

Hope that tides you over until tomorrow. Looking forward to date night this weekend!
