November Days of Gratitude Day 13


You know even if life is crazy, frustrating, hard, and unfair- which so often it is, there's so much to be thankful for. Not only is life all of those crazy things, it comes in waves and just crashes down on us at times. But there's always light, always hope. I'm so thankful for that. I don't have a perfect life, my life is so far from perfect. Whatever perfect is. I have a messy disorganized house, I snap at my children, I sometimes dread making dinner. I get behind on laundry. But I find that narrowing it down to one ting I'm thankful for a day is more often than not difficult. And for that I'm so very thankful, I know I am blessed.
Last night we had a storm. We lost power for all of 5 minutes. That's it. 
Piglet got sick but she got up and didn't get sick all over the bed. Then she was fine the rest of the night.
And this morning? Diva. My eight year old. My sweet wonderful 8 year old walked by me with a hamper of dirty clothes she was taking downstairs and said, "I cleaned the bathroom." as she passed by. Sure enough I went in there and she had gotten the bathroom "company ready". Cleared the counters, wiped them down, wiped the sink down, wiped the outside of the toilet, and put in a fresh roll of toilet paper. <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
