Day 1: Today is a strange day to start this, but ya know no more procrastinating. I am going to start writing down 1 thing I am thankful for each day. Most of you know that 2010 was a busy and trying year and I clearly have a lot to be thankful for. I think sometimes I forget this though. I get caught up in the rat race that is my life and let small things get hold of me . Writing them down and publishing for all to see might allow me to be accountable for for being thankful for the tiny triumphs and grace I am given each day. What do you think? So with all that said I was woken up at 4:00 a.m. by three screaming, well one kicking, girls. Why I do not know. I was pretty sure that someone played a late April Fools joke on me and changed our clocks. No dice on that one. Jeff said we should pray for strength before we got out of bed. As I laughed I thought silently to myself "you know maybe I should". Typically on these type days things go down hill and fast. By the time daddy gets home the four of us look as if we have been run over by a mac truck that was spinning in a tornado. So praying for strength might be a good idea. Here we are at 4:48 p.m. all sitting peacefully in the den. Ashlyn Kay is watching Dora (shocking I know) and the twins are jumping in their jumperoos. Mommy even got to rest her oh so tired eyes for a bit. Let me tell you it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I know that being thankful for no drama and strength might seem trivial to some but as a stay at home mom of three little girls under the age of 3 this is like winning the lottery. Can I get a amen from my SAHM! So for Wednesday, April 6, 2011 I am thankful for strength and no drama....oh and strong coffee!
