I’m thankful for comfy sweats, Riesen’s chocolates, a role playing game of “hair salon,” a bright moon in the early morning, pellet ice, tickle fights, movie nights, a hot bowl of Cream of Wheat after a cold run, unexpected hugs from my growing boys, silly face selfies, family bike rides, and bus-stop pickups when they’re all fighting for my attention to tell me the stories of their day.
I’m thankful today, but to be honest, I’m thankful every day.
Every day that I tuck my little ones into bed, every day that we get to spend together, every day that we are healthy, every day that we are smiling, is a day that I am overcome with thankfulness.
Today is no different.
I have a lot to be thankful for, but these five that are standing by me right here- they’re everything. They make me who I am. My life is centered on making sure that they are all taken care of. There is no other life I’d rather have.
