{being thankful}

its been awhile since i've posted anything. 
our colds are all gone. my birthday has passed. i spent my first days away from both boys, back in my growing up town for my friends wedding & have come back home. its been a wonderfully busy month so far.

tomorrow marks our one year date with isaac being with us at home. i take it for granted a lot of the time now. that he is healthy for now, & with us. & i just wonder, when i let that happen? when i got so  wrapped up in day to day & have not consciously been thankful for a lot of things.

there are a lot of ways i want to grow. but one, for now, is thankfulness. a lot of times, it seems like i have to choose to be thankful. for the way things are, & for how much goodness we have experienced.

there really is so much to be thankful for.

so today i am thankful for the chilly winter air, & a cup of coffee in the morning. for time to do yoga. for isaac & how he will 'turn the page' when we read books now. for daniel working so hard so i can stay at home & do the job i love most. & for the sweet potato fries in the oven right now. especially those, at this moment :)

what are you thankful for today? its the perfect time to start thinking!
