Day’s Of Thanks #22…

November 22nd: My days of thanks are winding down, I will always have something to be thankful for I just may not always publicly express it. Everyday I think of so many things that I’m blessed with.

Today has been one of those difficult winter days. Not so difficult because of the trials we’ve had in the last 4 months but difficult mainly because of the snow and the depression it brings with it for me. In the winter I find myself struggling to get up in the morning. Once I do get up it’s difficult to make myself do anything other than stare out the window and wish it was summer. But today I pulled myself out of the stoop, I don’t know how I did it,it must’ve been another of those blessings I have to be thankful for. I wasn’t the mom I’d like to be this morning, I didn’t get up and make breakfast or get lunches ready I slept right until it was time for the girls to walk out the door. Then I told them to have hot lunch today, which they were excited about. I hugged them and kissed them and reminded myself how blessed I am to have such responsible girls to get themselves ready for school without me prodding them on. Then I fell back to sleep on the couch. When I got up at 10:30 I had to remind myself that even though Isaac made a huge mess with board games all over the front room I was blessed that he can entertain himself most of the time. He let me have my morning nap that I usually don’t take. I then decided I’d been lazy long enough and made a plan to make homemade rolls because baking usually cheers me up. So I called my mom to get some tips and cleaned my kitchen while talking to her. I am so blessed to have a mom that I can call anytime and just visiting with her cheers me up. Then at 12:20 I got a call from David saying that he was coming home today. His boss and he had been watching the incoming storm and it’s just getting worse. The roads are supposed to be horrible on Tuesday night which is when David had originally planned on coming home for Thanksgiving. He decided to take a sick day tomorrow and come home early. When he asked his boss if that was ok, his boss said he was about to suggest that anyway. I am so thankful for David’s co-workers and the wonderful company he works for. They have really been wonderful to us. Even though they do not know me and the kids well they have pulled together for our family in our greatest time of need. They are truly amazing and have become in a way David’s family away from home. I miss him horribly most days but I am so thankful that he is in good company and that they take care of him. Thank You IP Network Solutions and Data Sciences of Dugway, UT.

If you’ve noticed I’ve listed several blessing in this post just about today. So today and always I’m thankful for my blessings.
