Thankful Thursday

Everyone is asleep, and I am reveling in this rare time I can call my own. During the chaos I call my day, I tend to focus on the negative, whether than on what IS good, what is going right, and what I am happy about. I have three little beings that need me, constantly, endlessly...sometimes I am overwhelmed. I could not do this alone. That leads me to what IS good, what is going right, and what I am happy about.

Leif, I love this man. He is my best friend, my provider, my therapist, and the best Daddy I could ask for my kids. He makes an effort to make me laugh, everyday. He tries to dance with me in the kitchen. He listens to me whine...A LOT. He brings me home girl scout cookies. He tells me I'm beautiful. He loves me.

My Mama. How would I manage this without her? She helps me SO MUCH. She is always willing to help me, even if it means postponing something I am sure she would rather be doing. I can always count on her help.

My Dad. This guy. Man, he cracks me up. I enjoy the little snickers I can only share with him. He makes me happy, just to see his bald onion head. (Yes, Dad, I really did just type that)

My Sister, Tammy. Just recently we've made an effort to strengthen our relationship. It means a lot to me. I have missed her.


  1. Great posts Lur. Its nice to sit down and write the positive things we do have in our every day lives, especially when it seems to be filled with frustrations and trials. I have not been so happy lately and when I got to church I felt the spirit very strong, so I bore my testimony in church today. It felt like a great reminder (slap in the face) of all the blessings I receive and need to snap myself out of the negative. Just know, you're not the only one with those kinds of struggles. ;)

    I'm so very much looking forward to our visit in a week and a half! Can't wait! The countdown begins. Looking forward to holding that sweet Soren for the first time. :D

  2. I totally understand. Some days are really hard with little ones, no matter how great they are. I realized today my kids are 3, 2, and 1! Its crazy. But just know that a lot of people love you, especially us! :) and admire all that you are able to you. You are blessed to have the loving family you have, also. Love ya, lady! :)
