This post began the first day of 2018. The goal is to keep a “attitude of gratitude” all year long. We all get thankful in November but its a year round life people! I originally intended to post a whole year but that would be one monster post!:0 I’m going to do a daily note and then post at the end of the month instead 🙂
Jan 1 – My husband has the day off. LOVE!
Jan 2- Sold 2 dozen eggs and got a super sweet deal on some rabbit cages. Also cleaned the chicken coop. Farm livin’ at it’s finest!
Jan 3- My sweet co-worker surprised me with a gift bag for making her lunch yesterday. How nice! I honestly love cooking for people so I’m blessed twice!
Jan 4- Ok, to be honest I forgot..oops! But I know we had a church service that night and I am really thankful for our “home church revival”. I think it’s just what we need to really get things going.
Jan 5- I’m thankful it’s Friday:) also, we now have a play kitchen in the classroom and after studying “community helpers” we have been role playing restaurant /waitress/waiter and the kids LOVE it. Added bonus * they get extra word practice and build vocabulary when they write down food orders. Teacher win!
Jan 6- The day finally came! We have the certificate to prove it! My husband is retired from the National Guard! #sorryunclesamhesminenow
Jan 7- I’m thankful for my kids. This afternoon my daughter had a friend over and all around the house were giggles, giggles, giggles. I love that! As we were getting ready for bed my 8 year old wanted to snuggle and kept saying “I need you, I need you, I need you to love me”. Really, does it get any sweeter than that? No, it doesn’t!
Jan 8- Woke up to a beautiful sun making it’s way over the mountain. I live in a gorgeous valley. #blessed
Jan 9 – My son got into the welding program we were hoping for! I’m thankful he will be getting proper training in something he loves.
Jan 10- The day has just begun but as I looked around my house before leaving for school I was just so glad I get to live where I do. Our farm is a dream come true.
Jan 11- Chicken tacos. #hungrymama
Jan 12- It’s Friday. That’s all.
Jan 13- We are officially starting the kitchen reno today!:DExcited/Nervous
Jan 14 -17- We got a little busy with the kitchen remodel so I missed a couple of days but I am so thankful it went as well as it did! Lots of light and SOOO much easier to clean without the wall in the way!
Jan 20- The kitchen wall is down and the support beam is up! Thankful for a hard working husband. And for girls craft day (I escaped the mess!)
Jan 21- Well, I’m thankful for a God who knows where I’m at. My husband has mild PTSD and though he is able to do all the things that keep a house running our lives have been forever altered by it. I’m glad I serve a God who knows and cares about our struggles. He proved to me again today that I’m still His girl even in times of frustration.
Jan 22- Noah starts welding class! Praying for angels to go with him.
Jan 25- I’m thankful I am home with my little girl…even if she is sick
Jan 26- I’m thankful for my silly little students. They are a goofy and fun loving bunch.
Jan 27- I’m thankful for the beautiful new fallen snow. It’s the prettiest thing ever.
Jan 28 – I’m thankful for our houseful today. We have company and its a good thing!:)
Jan 29- I’m thankful for getting a few things crossed off the list and for learning something new. And for my family and teamwork and that I didn’t have any plans today at all. Not one 🙂 #homebody
Jan 30- I’ve had my mind set on a couple of goals and it’s funny how God will use the simplest thing to give you confirmation. #morningroutine #5minuteworkout
Jan 31- I’m and day early but I can’t wait…..I made it ! Budgeting, I mean 🙂 all the way through baby!
What are you thankful for today?
