Hello? You there? Hi! I've been a little absent lately, and not just from the blog, but from my head. HA! I haven't even read much this past month, and I've been really busy at work and home trying to plan things and get ahead. But I'm starting to feel balanced again, so hopefully I'll get back in the swing of life. :)
So what am I thankful for today? Definitely not being innovative here, but I'm going with family anyway. I don't know where I'd be without them all. My husband, my kids, my parents, my sister in law, and (begrudgingly) my brother. There's also the extended fam that supports and loves me unconditionally, but I'm just going to stick with the immediate here.
I love when my son (4) tells me "I love you the best in the whole wide world." And when my daughter (nearly 2) runs up to me and squeezes my neck. I love that my husband does all sorts of little things to show me he loves me (helps with dishes, laundry, kisses me before work, makes me a cup of coffee, lets me read in peace). I relish the moments where we all sit and cuddle, reading books or watching a movie, or when we sprawl out on the floor and play board games. Things, of course, aren't always rainbows and butterflies, but all the fun/good moments overshadow the bad.
I hope you all have had a wonderful October and enjoy the upcoming holiday seasons. Hopefully we'll see more of each other from here on out.
