So I wasn't planning on doing a Thankful Thursday post again today... let's be honest. I wasn't planning on posting anything today. I was actually feeling pretty sorry for my poor self.
I've got a sick baby who also happens to be teething :(
AND a sick hubby.
And a headache and a sore throat.
Plus I cooked dinner last night and it was gross and the house is a serious wreck because sweet sick baby wouldn't sleep all day yesterday... or all night!
But then it hit me.
That's a perfect reason to post about what I'm thankful for!
It doesn't matter how bad the day is, there is always SO much to be grateful for.
So today I'm thankful for:
-My brother, who wrote this awesome article that pushes me to stay focused on what really matters. Tyler is the most passionate person I know and he constantly inspires me to not settle for what's popular and/or easy.
-Our general health. Colds and coughs are a bummer for a few days but really we are so blessed to have healthy bodies!
-The blessing of being able to be home with Lily. We've sacrificed a lot to make this possible and at times I've even doubted myself for doing it, but I am 100% positive this is where I should be and I'm more thankful than ever that I can be at home to take care of my sick baby.
-My new leopard print flats from Target. I "splurged" and bought them at the full $14.99 instead of waiting for them to go on clearance. They feel like spring :)
So there you have it. I'm thankful again!
