I would really like Fall to be a fresh start with a whole new outlook on life. Thankfully, World Gratitude Day is September 21, 2014. What better reason than to celebrate all the good things and small blessings in one's life, don't you agree?
First, I am thankful that my teenage son, Kyle, has made a beautiful transition into high school. Like many teens, he wasn't too thrilled about the start of a new school year, and he had foolishly hoped that summer would last forever. He wasn't looking forward to new teachers, a new school, and the increased responsibility that comes with being a high school student.
Even though his day starts earlier than it did in previous years, he seems bright-eyed and bushy-tailed every morning, and this makes my job as a Mom exponentially easier. I never have to fight with my teen to get him out of bed. For that, I am definitely grateful!
I am very thankful that my partner knows how to keep me balanced, grounded, and out of an insane asylum. Even if his antics do occasionally make it appear that he belongs in one. I mean, Count Chocula walking around the Walmart? Oh Lord.
Anyone who knows me is well aware that I don't generally care about celebrities at all. In fact, I usually don't even know who most of them are...But my Bruno is a different story entirely. I absolutely, positively love this man. Well, as much as you can love someone you've never met who wouldn't give you the time of day if you had. But hey, a girl can dream and swoon, right? Bruno Mars just makes me happy, and I am definitely grateful for that.
But my favorite furry friend would have to be my Yorkie, Trouble. This little dog always seems to know how to make me smile. She does have a bit of an attitude, like she's ruler of the roost, but this just adds to her charm. Plus, she is snuggly, affectionate, and loves playing with the kids. Whoever coined the phrase "Man's Best Friend" definitely had my Trouble in mind!
Last weekend, we decided to have Family Movie Night. We pulled out the sofa bed and put in an Indiana Jones Blu-Ray. Well, before I could even settle into bed with my bag of freshly popped, buttery popcorn, Dan, Sophie and Xander were all asleep. On my Nature's Sleep Aerated Viscolite Memory Foam Pillow. (The thieves!) Actually, sacrificing my oh-so-comfy pillow was a small price to pay for an hour or 3 of absolute, blissful silence. Plus, how cute are they, all piled up, sharing my pillow? Makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I adore my family, even if they are a bit wacky at times.
