This is another new weekly post. I think it’s really important to take a minute and be thankful every once in a while, so we don’t take things for granted. For example, before this school year started I had a lot of time to get the house work done and then work on my own projects. Now that I have to be at school 5 days a week, I realize how much I took that spare time for granted before. I am so thankful any time I get an hour to myself that doesn’t include planning lessons or cleaning or cooking!
So here’s the plan – every Friday (hopefully) I will post 3 things I am thankful for. Then I’ll invite you to share something you are thankful for in a comment. Fun! Let’s get started!
1. I am thankful for the few spare moments I had Wednesday morning before school when I could do some sewing. (To be blogged next week!) It was so nice to be doing something that didn’t need to be done!
2. I am thankful for the time when my preschoolers started telling me the things they like about pre-school. And especially for when one of them said he liked everything!
3. I am thankful that my husband is so supportive and understanding (I think I’m going to be thankful for this a lot…). This week when he could tell I was a little tired/stressed he was extra nice to me. He even offered to start cooking dinner one night a week. Considering I had just taught him how to crack an egg (I though this was innate…) about an hour before, this is a pretty big deal. He also offered to take me on his run with him, since that helps him feel less stressed, and then, when I agreed to it, he went slow and let me walk sometimes. He’s the best!
What are you thankful for this week?
Oh, and on a side note, check out this fun video 100 seconds covering the last 100 years of fashion. I kind of wish I could get a closer look at the clothes, but it’s still pretty cool.
