Day 2 1 and 22

After venting about my girls, they can also break my heart. Last night, I arrived home after a meeting and they were still awake. I went upstairs to "re-tuck" them in. I was heading out of the room when Libby said, "Mama ... you didn't give me a hug, and a kiss, and a wiggle."

Just turn that knife in my heart, honey.

So, I am thankful for daughters that remind me to give hugs, kisses, and wiggles (eskimo kisses).

I am also thankful for the ability to run. It keeps me sane and healthy.

Day 20

Today, I am thankful for wine as a coping mechanism to deal with two grumpy three-year-olds who in the last hour have told me:

I cannot walk.
I can't get up (off the potty). My feet are too itchy.
I don't want to wash my hands.
I can't wash my hands.
I don't like to wash my hands.

They are now in bed, about 30 minutes early, but not asleep, and that is OK with me. I think we all needed a break from each other. Whew.

Days, Um 15 - 19

Ok, so one of my friends gently reminded me that I am waaaayyy behind on my days of thankfulness, so I will try to wrap up my week.

Thankful for a new half marathon PR - 2:09:46. I didn't see that one coming, so it really made me proud.

Thankful that I had the ability to hear Dee Dee Myers speak on why women should rule the world. In a room of nearly 1,000 women and a handful of squirming men, it was a very inspiring luncheon, with a few aha moments along the way.

Thankful for coffee this week. On rainy days, it makes me feel cozy.

Thankful for friends who help me keep it real. Fo' real tho.

Thankful that our JLG magazine, The Evergreene hit mailboxes yesterday ... a week earlier than scheduled and that it is truly full of great articles.

Thankful that I have a husband who cooks and tries to do so healthfully.

Hubby found a new recipe for Rocco's "almost" General Tso's chicken and made it for dinner. Yummy, healthy, and spicy!!

Day 13

I am thankful for swings in our backyard. Not the toddler kind, but the rope swing that hangs from a limb about 100 feet up.

Lets just say that thirty-something year olds aren't too old to swing.

Happy Anniversary, Hubby!

Day Eleven

Playing catch up ... maybe that should be the thankful theme.

Thankful for little people who claim that they are thankful for each other.

And leave me treats, like the uneaten end of their banana.

Sigh.

Day Nine

Thankful for Jimmy John's on days that I forget to pack a lunch. In a matter of minutes, they delivered a yummy Veggie sandwich. Next time, I will be thankful for remembering to order extra avocado spread. It's the little things, people.

Day 4, Day 5 and Day 6

Day 4 - Thankful for a fun trip to Savannah and a much needed, adult dinner out complete with good food, good wine, and good conversation!

Day 5 - Thankful for a new half marathon PR in Savannah ~ 2:11 and some change. I know I'm not winning any races, but to be able to hold some speedy for me times, and pass the 2:15 pace group, it felt pretty amazing.

Day 6 - Thankful to great friends ... those that will run with you and those that drive two hours to see you for about four.

Day 3

Thankful for Libby, when asked what she is thankful for replied, "Mama, Maddy, and Daddy."

30 days of thankfulness

I know I am late starting on the bandwagon, but I here goes nothing ...

Day One: I am thankful for my health and the health of my family.

Day Two: I am thankful for two beautiful daughters that while sometimes drive me to the point of frustration, make me so proud to be their Mom.
