Cold Cinnamon Toast

I am thankful for....

~A piece of cold cinnamon toast waiting to be eaten-----because it means Cosette made it to the potty in time.

~ A drawer full of 'too-small' baby boy clothes----because it means that Elias is growing like a weed!

~ An alarm that goes off way earlier than I'd like----because it means I can talk to my husband before he leaves for work.

~ Not being able to decide what to cook for dinner----because it means I have plenty on my pantry shelves to pick from

~ A sink full of dirty dishes in the morning----because it means we spent the night before playing with the kids instead of doing dishes

~ A little girl who is constantly trying to get my attention----because it means she is learning to express herself through words.

~ A grapefruit that I only got three bites of----because it means Cosette is learning to appreciate new foods.

~ A washer full of clean clothes----because it means I didn't have to wash them by hand!

~ A big bowl of double chocolate chunk fudge brownie icecream----Well, who WOULDN'T be thankful for that ?? ;)

Somestimes we have to remind ourselves of the blessings in life... :)

A little sister couldn't ask for better big bro and big sis. I thank God every day for blessing me with such an awesome family. And as if that wasn't enough, about 3 years ago God made our family even better by sending Joel. Soon after that Cosette and Eli came along to make this lil' sis even happier :] I love you guys!

Absolutely! I love how you took possible negatives and made them positives - and such sweet positives! I just might steal this idea one of these days...;)
