a} YOU! I know, it's cliche, but truly, I am thankful that you take the time to read my blog. I know my blog is nothing special, but it's something that I enjoy. And while I love getting to write posts based on whatever floats my little boat, I really like that I get to "meet" people because of my blog, through the commenting and conversations. I really like that you take the time to leave comments. Also, I really like getting to visit your blogs, and read your posts and leave you comments. It's all pretty awesome. So thanks for being a part of it!
b} SUNSHINY days. We've had a few days of nice weather this last week and it has been ahh-mazing. I'm not a winter person at all, and have been waiting anxiously for Spring since November.
c} my sweet husband. He's always willing to go out of his way to do the little things. Earlier this week, I was craving diet coke like you wouldn't believe, and he ran to the store at 8:40 at night to get me some. Totally unnecessary, but very sweet.
d} Coupons and great deals. Since I'm a stay at home mom, and not earning any money, I make it my job to try and save money on the things we do buy. It's definitely beneficial for our finances, but I think it's pretty fun too :) I love when I can combine a good sale price AND a coupon and get my groceries for super cheap. Dillons prints the percent you save on your receipt too and I always check to see how well I did. I've had a few 70+ % savings and I love it!
e} Books. As I've shared on here before, I really do love to read. I can spend hours reading. And I love all different kinds of books. But I'm thrilled that my kiddo loves to read too. You cannot force a child to like reading (believe me, I was a teacher!) but you can expose them to reading and good books, and help cultivate a joy for reading. And thankfully, Kaylee enjoys it. Her school had their Scholastic book fair this week, and while we walked away with $38 less than what we started with, it's money well spent if you ask me.
I'd love if you join in and share a few things you're thankful for!
It's easy to get caught up in the negatives, so I think it's good to take a minute and focus on the positives...and hopefully you'll feel a little bit better afterwards.
You can see some of the other things that I've been thankful for here or here.
