It's day 29 of NaBloPoMo, and I'm spent! What to write, what to write...
I could resort to tales of what we had for dinner (Frito pie), or I could update my weight loss saga (since I hadn't updated my weight loss ticker for EIGHTY days until today). I could talk about how the four of us are cozied up in the living room watching the Cowboys-Packers game. We could get into how Katie and Ryan are filling our house with Christmas music these days, getting ready for their school programs. There's "Shrek the Halls" that we just watched on tape; that could be a short post. Brett just made another banana smoothie, his snack of choice lately, and I could write at least a paragraph about his blended love. And of course, there are always cat stories to be told, if only to uphold our reputation as the C.C.P. Hmm. What to write, what to write...
When I started this whole post-every-day-for-a-month thing, I said I would be blogging gratitude, but how simple is it to say I'm thankful for, um, just about everything? I'm thankful for all of the daily blessings that make me smile, from Fritos to trumpet music to animated ogres. I'm so glad to have "just a Thursday night" in my home, surrounded by my precious family, my belly full, my heart fuller.
It is the little things that sometimes matter the most. I think the ability to appreciate the little things is a true gift.
Jill's story just breaks my heart. She has such a great outlook and attitude. That clip was just amazing. I am so happy that she and her family will have that experience. What a great memory for her kids. They will never doubt that she loved them dearly.
Saying "NaBloPoMo" really fast makes Jack laugh
Frito Pie!!! Yes!!!
I introduced that to a few people up here. Big hit.
