i am grateful for pop-up thermometers in turkeys
i am grateful for marie calendar pies on sale at smith’s grocery store for $3.99i am grateful for Lays ruffle plain chips that deliver salty goodness to my tongue every time
i am ungrateful for the cottage cheese i found in my fridge this morning when going to make dip for above mentioned chips when i thought this whole time it was sour cream……darn wal mart packaging, all looks the same.
i am ungrateful for the nutrition label on the above mentioned bag of delicious chips.i am grateful for the naked bear standing next to me laughing and saying ‘don’t pee your pants’ after taking a speed bath in which i thought i would have time to type this without him standing next to me naked saying ‘don’t pee your pants.’
i am grateful that yesterday i got to walk with bear on one side holding my hand and queen on the other side with my arm around her. i cannont tell you the last time i was able to walk with both of them.
i am grateful for a son who has no concept of time and still wants me to sit and visit with him every night
i am grateful for queen who buys a bag of animal crackers and then just carries them around unopened.
i am grateful for a daughter who eats her boogers and chews her nails and has the biggest heart in the family.
i am grateful for a bird who played a 13-year-old in air hockey and only lost by one point. it was intense and fast. i am grateful she loves her queen almost as much as her mom and dad do.
now bear is standing next to me saying ‘baby cried and pooped and cried and pooped’ while laughing.
i am grateful for a hubby who clips coupons, goes out and uses the coupons, then gets on the savvy shopper website to see them cheaper somewhere else and gets mad.
i am grateful for a husband, who even though he says he has already spent our food budget for the pay period, still goes out and buys things because he just can’t help it on sale, and i find the bags hidden in the storage closet.
my life is blessed.
i love my life.
i know how truly fortunate i am to have a loud, bustling, happy home and try to not ever take it for granted.
i do try to give away sometimes.
