It may not be Thankful Thursday, but I feel like it's overdue around here. Laura tagged me on Facebook to list 3 positives a day for an entire week. Something about the chaos in my life lately makes it seem a little daunting.
But we can totally use some positivity around here so here we go.
I am so thankful for my kickass friends. The ones I can call when everything feels like everything is breaking down. The ones who remind me that there is always something to be thankful for. The ones who tell me I need to meet them at the gym because I will feel better. The ones that I can kick back with on the lake - or at the beach - at their house - or at a pig roast with ... and just be.
I'm thankful for amazing sunsets, and time spent with my boys. All 4 of them.
I'm thankful for Al being on vacation this week. It doesn't even matter that we aren't going away this time around. The little day trips and just spending time as a family (in-between looking at houses) before school starts is perfect enough.
I'm thankful that the boys get to spend days like these with family.
I'm thankful we live so close to the water, because it's part of what keeps me going.
I'm thankful that we are able to surprise the boys with their first trip to Disney in just a matter of weeks. The countdown is in full effect (unbeknownst to the kids).
For all this and more, I am thankful. And a big thank you to Laura for reminding me that there is always something to be positive about. I tell the boys that all the time - but sometimes I don't always remember it for myself.
