Gratitude: A Thanksgiving I am Project

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

Today is the gratitude  “I am project.” I have lots of great pictures from amazing women from all over North America in the slideshow below.

I’m thankful for finally getting better-

We are all recovering from ebola Strep and some crazy fever virus.The hardest part of having 5 kids is that your home becomes a petri dish and you start dropping like flies.

i’m thankful for playtime-

I’m grateful for the stress relief and release of playtime. Sometimes when I take the boys to play I realize how much I needed it.

Speaking of happy times, at Thanksgiving dinner tonight all 7 of us took turns saying what we are grateful for. When it was my turn, I opened my mouth to speak and my 5 year old interrupted with his best guess of what I would say.

“The Tweeter!” he exclaimed. “Mommy, you are grateful for the Twitter birds in the iCloud.”

Amazing what 5yr olds pick up, right?

i’m thankful for my guys-

Every night all five boys climb in our bed and watch sports with Daddy. I always try to avoid the upcoming chaos by escaping on my iPhone tidying the living room.

They snuggle, they laugh, they wrestle, they get hurt, someone cries, they get mad, their feelings get hurt and finally, Daddy kicks them out. Craziest part is this same routine may happen 2 or 3 times in one day.

Crazy guys!

 

I’m thankful for grace.

Grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them. ~St. Augustine

So true.
