Thankful Thursday

I'm using up every ounce of patience and every sliver of gentle persuasion that I possess today. It's draining. Very very draining. But I wouldn't trade it for any other kind of life, even if you gave me a million dollars!

There is much to be grateful on this sunny Thursday.

I found a laminator today. I've been scoping online for almost a month and haven't found what I want for the price I want. Wouldn't you know it, I was walking through Walmart today looking for something completely different when I saw a laminator for the best price I've seen. AND no shipping charges. Cha-ching! Now to find the best place to get laminating sheets...Jen?;)

We doubled up on lessons today and Jonzy didn't notice until the very end when he decided he'd had enough. Almost perfect timing.

My family is amazing.

My parents recently celebrated their anniversary. I'm so grateful for my wonderful parents and sorry for those of you who were not raised by them:)

Air conditioning! It's hot outside today. A couple days ago, for a couple days in a row, I could feel autumn in the air. I'm super excited for this fall season!!

I'm thankful that my head doesn't explode when all three of my boys are loudly upset about something, even though it feels like it will.

I'm thankful that my heart doesn't explode when all three of my boys are singing songs with me at bedtime, even though it feels like it will.

I'm also thankful for this blog that reminds me to pause and document a bit of gratitude on a regular basis. It's been life changing.

What are you thankful for today?
