After 5 minutes of sitting here, thinking about what I want to be thankful for, I still can’t pick one. So I’m going to share them all.
-> Obviously democracy and our ability to vote- along with the sweet, elderly poll workers who made such a fuss over the kids tonight as we waited in line. Such a great fuss, in fact, that the Bean cried when she realized we could only vote once.
-> I’m thankful for kids who think breakfast for dinner is the best thing ever and don’t realize that eggs and pancakes = a mommy who didn’t plan ahead.
-> Scorch and I had a morning where he wasn’t happy and I wasn’t happy with him. While I think I handled things as well as I could have, I was still beating myself up while he was at school for not having all the answers for my kid and not being able to make all his worries disappear. Hearing Scorch say during prayers tonight that he was thankful that God gave him the best Mom in the world made me so very thankful for the resilience of youth.
-> I was so thankful to see the sun out today. It had been 11 days- ELEVEN DAYS, PEOPLE- since we saw the sun. Even though it was only 38 degrees out, I wanted to take a blanket outside and lay on it to soak up the rays.
-> I’m thankful that it’s 7:52 pm and both my kids are asleep, leaving the Hubs and I all night to obsess over the election results without having to answer a million questions from the kids.
