this saturday i'm grateful for... well, everything

Saturdays are the days where our household stops. No TV, no hyper stimulation. Time to spend time together and just be. And because it's our day of rest, there's time to reflect on the six past days and remember all the things I'm grateful for...
  1. Absolutely everything. It's been a dark week. Burying husband's, drowing families, losing houses, losing a year's supply of crops that was once a whole family's income... Every night I've crawled into my sons' beds for a cuddle while they slept and have told my husband every night how much I love him. I'm not taking anything for granted.
  2. Holidays. While I've struggled to just chill out and relax, I think that I'm finally getting my groove back. Must be doing all that... um, not very much. And just in time. Back at work on Monday.
  3. A night out with just hubby. A ten year anniversary is a jolly good excuse to get out without the little lads (I'm so grateful for awesome friends who also pose as wonderful babysitters: thanks Kate and David!). We tried to remember the last time we did this and it was almost a year ago. But I love that we still have lots ot talk about, and love each other's company. And once again, not taking any of it for granted.
Happy Grateful Day.
