What are You Thankful for Today?

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

1. I woke to the wind, from an open window, slamming the bedroom door against the jam. The wind was warm and I was happy to hop up and quiet the door.

2. I was the only one who heard this wind so I quietly crept downstairs for 30 minutes of solitude before the chaos of the morning ensued.

3. I took the dogs outside to do their very important business and marveled at the wind as it tossed about the trees that were magnificent but still without leaves.

4. I welcomed my son as he was the next one to greet the day. He wanted my attention so I closed the laptop.

5. I smelled his breath that is becoming more like big boy breath and less like baby breath. Bittersweet.

6. I dropped my oh-so-independent 2yr old at preschool. Bittersweet again.

7. I had an awesome workout. One of the benefits of preschool.

8. I stopped by to see my extremely hardworking husband and was awed by his ability to still impress me.

9. I showered in peace while my daughter napped and I never ran out of hot water.

10. I basked in the sun of a most perfect spring day.

This was an awesome list! I loved reading it so much, I had to go back for a second helping!

Thanks so much for joining in this week! I hope you'll come again. It sounds like you have a lot for which to be thankful!

Also, the part about the kiddo being in PS and you getting to workout makes me more than a little jealous.
