Today I am thankful for...

  • Kids, my kids. My kids that love to play games, and don't hold their anger long. My kids that smile and me and hug. My kids that are creative little artists, singer/song writers, architects, and forensic anthropologists.
  • A wonderfully creative husband. When I am around him I feel creatively inadequate. He works hard, which allows me to stay home. He makes me laugh. He loves me.
  • My sewing room. A place to work. A place to create. A place to share with my kids.
  • A new laptop for our family. Shiny, new, just out of the package.
  • Tax returns that allow for said laptop.
  • My parents and their pork.
  • My sisters and my brother.
  • Getting all the trash out of our van. Seriously, it was bad. I am just glad its done.
  • My best friend, my other half, my platonic life partner. Even if she lives 6hrs away. I am so thankful for technology that allows us to call each other for free (thank you mobile to mobile minutes), video chat, text, email, cyber window shop, etc.
  • NO MORE DIAPERS!!! Uri is successfully potty trained. I mean, staying dry at night, potty trained. Yep, its amazing.
  • Vehicles that work.
  • Houses that keep us warm and safe.
  • Embroidery.
  • Quilts.
  • Awesome Aunts.
  • Giving Grandparents.
  • Legos.
  • Coffee nights at Benettis.

Obviously there are many things to be thankful for. These are the ones fresh in my mind right now.

There is a homeschool meeting tomorrow night! Us moms are going to get together and play games and just enjoy each others company. It was a lot of fun last month, so I look forward to it again.


  1. I love you, platonic life partner.

  2. I am thankful for you Em. I think about you and your family daily. You are the little sister I never had.

    Love you!

  3. How come I don't know you? We must remedy that sometime soon. Seriously.
