Gratitude List 2012

Well, it’s not super funny or poignant or anything like that, but for posterity’s sake, here’s my list for 2012. It’s a simple reflection of where we’re (I’m) at right now. I hope to write more soon, but the numbness in my fingers and the frustration with my computer has not subsided yet, so the infrequent posts are the unfortunate result. The good news is that I’m enjoying my new mom status to the fullest with so few distractions J

Thankfulness List 2012

  1. Everything baby. The noises, the softness, the smallness, even the smells – well most of them.
  2. A full nights sleep.
  3. My community of friends and family. I am so very, very blessed. God has a way of putting the best people in the right place, for the right season, every time.
  4. Hot showers.
  5. Knowing that we learn from our mistakes.
  6. Living in a country where we can choose how to educate our kids, where to worship, what kind of food/ products to buy, our health care options, etc. We have no idea how free we really are.
  7. Belly laughs.
  8. Having come to the place where I enjoy spending my whole day, everyday with my kids (and still feel like it’s going by too fast)
