Today I am thankful for friendship. For four awesome women ready to take on a travel adventure with me in a few months. For text conversations that make me laugh and keep me sane. For a busy friend willing to let me drop my kids off for a bit while I run to an appointment. For encouraging Facebook messages and plans for coffee.
Today I am thankful for my health.
Today I am thankful for a decently-clean kitchen and laundry that is folded and put away.
Today I am thankful for fresh-baked apple pie.
Today I am thankful for weekend plans that make me smile.
Today I am thankful to have not had a repeat of yesterday.
Today I am thankful for dinner at Chick-fil-A, waffle fries and play places. For getting to keep that clean kitchen going for a little while longer.
Today I am most of all thankful that Mark is home from a business trip. That the kids sprinted through the airport to tackle him, the bags are unpacked, and he's here in the living room with me for our usual evening mini-marathon of sitcoms.
It's a beautiful thing to end a day so full of gratitude. In truth, I always could...if I'd simply make the choice to remember.
