30 Days of Thankfulness: Days 15-21

Day 15: I'm thankful for the sweet moments, though few and far between, with just Lizzy and me.

Day 16: I'm SO thankful for a coffee date with my best friend from high school. Even though it has literally been YEARS since we've seen each other and months since we've really talked, it was like not even a day had passed. Friendship like that is a gift.

Day 17: I'm thankful for getting to sit next to Justin at a family dinner while both our kids were at the other end of the table. It was almost like a date! Almost.

Day 18: I'm thankful for my sister, who also claims November as her birthday month.

Day 19: I'm so thankful for the slowed pace of our weekends lately, which have allowed for plenty of snuggle time, and the option to stay in pajamas until noon.

Day 20: I'm thankful that Becca is gaining weight well! At the pediatrician on Monday, she weighed 8lbs 14oz--she's gained over a pound already! Woo! Also? So thankful for snuggles with a sleeping baby.

Day 21: I'm thankful for the unassuming brown envelope that arrived in the mail this week. No note, nothing else. Just this. It was a tremendous blessing, I'm so thankful, and I cannot wait to be able to pay it forward some day.


  1. I'm glad she is gaining weight well too. Go mama! And that envelope? What a huge blessing. Somebody out there loves you :)

  2. So much to be thankful for!!!

    I got a little chuckle about your kids at the other end of the table was almost like a date. So true!!!

  3. The envelope makes me all teary eyed! God is SO good!

  4. Oh man another tearjerker - I am so happy for you! I don't know what it is with me lately, so happy with joy and glad there are still quite a few nice people out there. Beautiful family.

  5. I am thankful for you too sister! And yes, November IS my birthday month! ;D (Why celebrate for only one day?! :P)
