Today was one of those that was filled with love, laughter, and learning. Not to mention tears, diapers, and mixed emotions.
It was a day no different then most everyday. Instead of letting myself get drug down by the monotony, I embraced it. I got up and got myself dressed and even put on make up. This isn’t always a normal, I want this to change. I want to live everyday to the fullest.
When I started to plan dinner an realized we were running low on a few of our staples. One of the main ones being meat, instead of panicking and calling Casey to pick something up. I embraced it and said a prayer thank God that we had a house with food in it.
I then went through the cookbooks I had to find recipes for what I did have. I found a pancake recipe that jumped out to me and then I was checking out some blogs that I read and came across this post by Kalee. And decided that I wanted to make a quiche. Never have done it before so googling led me to The Pioneer Woman’s blog. I took her idea and changed to fit what I had.
So guess what I am trying to say in all this rambling is I am thankful for my healthy family, a roof over our heads, and food to nourish our bodies. I am thankful for a husband that accepts me and my flaws and loves me even when I am a HUGE pain in his rear. I need to remember to take the time to give thanks for all of the little things that make my life great. I especially need to remember this when I started to get sad and down.
