Tonight I am thankful for:
sweet words from a social worker who had never met us, but says she has heard great things about our foster home
boys with fresh haircuts
an extra wee boy in the crib, Kaleb
my husband's hugs
Dinosaur BBQ baked beans for dinner
a nap. Fell asleep on the bed with Andrew working out math problems beside me. Twenty minutes of bliss.
48 pack of fruit leathers at Big Lots for $6. The expensive kind they sell in health food stores. Bought two boxes.
My son Aiden's words that he "is thankful God brings us so many foster children to love." Aiden is sometimes more the cup is half-empty kind of boy so this impromptu thought of his, I loved.
Watching my husband and the kids tap the maple trees.
Thoughts of homemade sausage, fried potatoes, biscuits and smoothies for breakfast tomorrow.
Winter is hard on me, so I'm feeling the need to be extra diligent with cultivating thankfulness. What about you?
