I’m thankful for:

  • Monkey hugs.
  • Freshly cleaned carpets. Mmmm smells as good as it looks. Good-bye little boy footprints, hello steam-cleaned.
  • New pajamas.
  • Four free days to fill as we choose.
  • Christmas trees and the decorations we’ve collected from around the globe.
  • Two kids that I never expected to want and now love more ferociously than I could have imagined. (Once upon a time I thought I would rather eat glass than have children. Then I ended up with two. Turns out God saved the best for last. But that’s a whole ‘nother post.)
  • The smell of rain on a dark, fall night.
  • Laffy taffy.
  • Families who love me long distance and up close.
  • The chubby baby waddle.
  • The passion of little boys.
  • Four-year-old-logic.
  • Thirteen years, three continents, two kids, and one husband.
  • Words on a page.
  • A soft mattress, a fluffy blanket, a familiar pillow.
  • Home.
  • Crazy love.
