November 3-7

November 3rd I was thankful for funny television. Crappy days are easier when you get to laugh a ton at the end of them.

November 4th I was thankful for blankets. Harrison and I were both getting a cold, and the blanket made it that much easier to hide from the rest of the world. Also, it was pretty fun wrapping Harrison in a burrito and pretending to eat his feet. Blankets made that possible.

November 5th I was thankful for my mom. I understand, more and more, the sacrifices she made to give us the things we loved. Lennon is taking ballet lessons, and when I see her up there, learning french and how to keep her back straight and tall, and running around on her tiptoes like a durn fool, I totally get it. My mom just loved the crap out of us.

November 6th, I was thankful for my little girl, who was so helpful at church. She had a pretty big responsibility to help the two of us find a seat, since Eric had to stay home with a sick Harrison, and she did it so thoughtfully and without a hint of resentment for being given a task so outside of her comfort zone. I spent the entire hour just sitting there so happy she was mine.

November 7th, I am thankful for rainy mornings, and crisp afternoons. I took a walk on my own while the kids were in school, and felt a great deal of gratitude for that alone time. The thought also passed my mind that I was grateful zombies aren't a real thing right now. I've been watching Walking Dead.

Please don't forget to keep doing these! I already did my time last month, so it's my turn to sit back and enjoy everyone else's. Especially yours.
