Every day I try and take a few moments to reflect on several things in my life that are good and wonderful. This helps me on even my worst days to realize just how blessed I am. There is a lot of good in my life, and while we do struggle with some issues – mainly health related in my family – I want to make sure that we spend time focusing on the good more than the bad.
Today I wanted to share with you a few of the things that I am thankful for and if you feel up to it please do the same with me.
Today I am thankful that I have a husband who supports my creative endeavors – it is so awesome when he takes the time to look at what I am working on and give me positive feedback and I especially love it when he throws in his 2 cents. You wouldn’t believe how many of his ideas are pure genius – I wish he would give me more of that, but I don’t want to push him. I am blessed to have someone who does not freak out when I go to the fabric store – instead he likes to see what I bought and hear about my next project.
Today (and everyday) I am thankful for Anne, at 2 years old she is already showing an immense interest in art – painting, drawing, sticker art – you name it! I love that she shows off her creative side regularly.
Oddly enough, today I am thankful that my neighbors dog woke up me. I know – totally weird! However, if the dog hadn’t woken me up I may have overslept seeing as I don’t use an alarm clock and I may have still been sleeping when Anne got up (coincidentally as I write this she is still asleep – baby girl had a rough night last night). Even the obnoxious barking dog has a place in my life today.
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday – be sure to come by tomorrow AND Monday – I have a couple of really fun and exciting surprises in store for you!
