Although Thanksgiving is 3 days past, now is the first time that I have sat down with more than a second to spare.
Lately I have been overwhelmed by working 10-13 hrs a day while still not feeling like I am accomplishing enough. Mason who seems to get into everything, Jackson who requires constant attention, and feeling like even when they're being difficult, that I never get to spend enough time with them. Our house and the level of perfection that I never seem to attain. Time with Matt and how I never feel like there's enough of it. Friends and how I lately I haven't been able to be the friend I want to be.
When I started to pity myself and my minor frustrations, it was impossible to not think of all of the things that I am SO grateful for.
-Matt and absolutely everything about him (There are so many reasons that I could make a list of just the reason's that I am thankful for him)
-Two healthy, happy, adorable boys
-My siblings and their spouses
-Grandparents (Matt and I still have 5 between the two of us)
-My job (and a boss and peers at work who are wonderful)
-Our cozy perfect home (whenever it's clean I tell Matt how much I LOVE it)
-The opportunity we have to give
-2 reliable vehicles (and 1 with automatic start!)
-Our stocked pantry and freezers
-My bed that is SO comfortable
-Pictures (especially all of the ones that Brian has been taking of the boys)
-Time off (My 2+ weeks a year, which bumps to 3+ in May!)
-Great friends (even when I feel like I can't be a great friend back)
-My DVR (pathetic, but I love being able to catch up or get behind on tv shows knowing that they are all saved there).
-The mountains that I wake up to every morning
-and SO MUCH MORE
