I’m once again getting my post in under the wire for the Lizzi’s and co-hosts of the TTOT. I don’t know why I just don’t write it on Fridays and wait until those last moments to submit my post. I’m the queen of procrastination usually and I wear my crown a little crooked in between being organized on these fleeting moments.
I love this time of day and I’m thankful when everything is quiet and I can write while the sounds of my slumbering family leave me feeling happy and grateful.
I’m thankful for a lovely Easter dinner shared with my family and my in laws were visiting us as well. There was lots of love, laughter, presents, and clothes for my growing boys and fun. Which was a welcome addition to their closets.
I’m thankful that my sweet boy will be turning five tomorrow. He’s had a lot of challenges since his birth and to see him happy, growing, and discovering the world fills my heart with love and happiness.
I’m thankful that we could celebrate an early family birthday party for him. The Dinosaur cave has taken up a special place in his room. The biggest hit of the weekend has been Big Batman almost the size of my son. He reserved a special spot for him in his rocking chair.
I’m thankful for the Easter egg hunt my youngest had with his Poppa. It was so cute to see them together with my son running around the yard with his bucket. Every time he collected an egg he would say “the Easter bunny can’t hide from me!”
I’m thankful for a walk in the sunshine and relaxing in my hot tub with my family. It was the perfect way to end the weekend. The Walking Dead was crazy good and I’m eagerly anticipating the season finale and dreading it at the same time. I will reveal no spoilers except to say I screamed a lot!
I’m thankful for getting my house cleaned, laundry organized, and being able to relax and enjoy myself this long weekend. Usually I’m stressed and trying to jump through hoops and keep everyone happy. This time I felt confident and calm and I kicked my anxiety to the curb.
I’m thankful for the beauty of my home. I love clean sparkling floors, scrubbed bathrooms, and laundry put away. I feel accomplished and happy as a housewife when I can look back and appreciate my hard work.
I’m thankful for my lovely family and my kind and generous husband. I found out that my youngest son has developed asthma. So I picked up his medicine and told my husband about it. We came home and I gave my son his medicine and started cleaning, dusting, and organizing clutter. I needed to occupy my mind that was filled with worry and get rid of the allergens as well. My husband came home with a Shark steam mop from Canadian Tire and I’m in love! It’s the little things that mean the most. ❤️
