I like to do a Thankful Thursday post at least once a month. Unless you take the time to think about what you are thankful for, you might think there are a collection of things that just plain suck in your life. I have this weird ability to see the positive in the most negative things.
Today I am Thankful for yesterday. I lost my shit (big time) trying to make my vacuum at least work (only the hose part works). Meanwhile, Levi was calm. Asking what I needed him to do for me. Helping me in any way that he could. Just being amazing. Delylah was in a weird happy-go-lucky kind of mood. After church Levi gave me a big hug. Apologizing for the vacuum not working, saying how much he loves me and (being positive) saying at least the hose part works. Even though I lost my shit and at that particular time I thought it was the worst day ever, it wasn’t. It was such a good day! I am beyond blessed to have such amazing, thoughtful kids!
I am Thankful for Flonase. Yep, it’s helped Delylah out so much since she started using it every day. It is a pain to remember to have her do it twice a day everyday but once we did, she stopped getting sick. Her allergies are terrible and the Flonase is keeping them in check. Especially right now when everything is blooming and it’s been windy. Remembering the Flonase every day is much better than constantly battling a sickness.
I am Thankful for home school. Levi has done more than just flourish with his learning. He has come out of his shell more and enjoys talking to other kids at the playground or wherever we may meet them. (which is contrary to what people say about home school kids) It feels good to use my brain everyday while learning or re learning all sorts of things. It’s weird because I am interested in most of it, which makes Levi want to learn it too! Home school takes up a lot of my time sometimes and I had to change my entire routine to conform to a new one but I believe it has been one of the best decisions we made for our family.
I am Thankful for my ability to let things go. I was not always like that. I would freak out at the slightest bit of non-routine, dirty carpet, kids making a mess and arguing constantly, over filling my schedule. Most of that still happens….everyday. Instead of stressing about it and worrying about it all, I have learned to just wooo-sah. Breath, remember I can only control so much and move on. Finding a way to do this has helped my life in a tremendous number of ways. I am not exhausted from battling everything just because I think I can. I don’t argue about stupid things with Travis. It doesn’t only make me happy, it makes my entire family happy!
What are you Thankful for? If you just take the time to think about it, you might be surprised what you really are Thankful for.
Happy Thursday- Be thankful for the bad things in life. They open your eyes to the good things that you weren’t paying attention to before!
