I'm Thankful

Today over at Lysa's blog, she challenged us to write down some things for which we are thankful. After the week I've had (and it's only Thursday morning!), I thought I'd just list out some of the things I'm thankful for . . . since Monday.

- I'm thankful for the guys who came to rip up our bathroom.
- I'm thankful for the electrician who came to fix our generator (sort of--see below).
- I'm thankful for the 100 letters and envelopes that "showed up" at my door needing to be stuffed and mailed.
- I'm thankful for friends for my kids and that they are old enough to go to the pool by themselves.
- I'm thankful for the tile I picked up on Tuesday.
- I'm thankful for the summer rolls that Kate and I made together.
- I'm thankful for six trips to the grocery store to purchase all the ingredients for our Asian feast on Tuesday.
- I'm thankful for exercise.
- I'm thankful for friends.
- I'm thankful for babies to cuddle.
- I'm thankful for doctors to care for serious burns and little boys who are brave.
- I'm thankful for Shrek because he makes me laugh.
- I'm thankful for tile in the RIGHT color, even though I had to drive back to the tile store to get it.
- I'm thankful for storms.
- I'm thankful for an electrician who drove through a storm to come fix the generator he supposedly fixed on Monday.
- I'm thankful for pizza when the power goes out.
- I'm thankful for more friends.
- I'm thankful for my community.
- I'm thankful for bad news (and there has been a LOT of it this week) because it puts everything into perspective.
- I'm thankful for chaos because it shows me that I'm really alive.

I'm thankful for the delicious cup of coffee at your table and that I can have caffine again! I'm thankful for my iPhone that let's me read this blog and feed a baby at the same time :)
