Thankvember is this idea of taking all thirty days of November to be thankful for things in our life. I’ve seen similar challenge idea such as Thirty Days of Thanks. Really, I think that it’s great to remember the amazing things in our lives since we so often get bogged down with negativity. Per the usual, I’m a few days behind but I promise it was for a good reason. 😉 We spent Halloween and the rest of the weekend at my sister in law’s in Boise. They have 3 girls, a little guy and another babe on the way. Plus, Jake’s other sister and family were there as well so two other little girls were added into the mix, plus my girls. They had a blast!
I’m thankful for family. Friday night Jake and I even had a chance to go on a date. Our wonderful family watched both girls and basically pushed us out of the house. I can’t thank them enough! It was the first date without a baby (no matter how well-behaved) tagging along. I got to wear a lovely new dress and we ate out at a little barbecue joint called Good Wood Barbecue Company. We ordered a philly cheese steak and the onion rings per my sister in law’s recommendation. I also got a salad and topped it all off with the perfect iced sweet tea.
I’m thankful for smiles. No matter how much I stress myself out, it all melts away with one of these. 😉
I’m thankful for resourcefulness. It means a great deal to use to be able to work from home, even if that means having to be resourceful and pull our business in a few different directions. I can’t help but feel like our girls have done nothing but benefited from having both of us at home all the time.
I’m thankful for friendship. Even more so that I was able to marry my best friend and spend an eternity with someone who knows how truly weird I can be. 😉
I’m thankful for kindness. It’s the less obvious kindness that comers from the little things in life that I’m really grateful for. Just yesterday, Jake’s brother in law offered to pick something up for us from the town an hour over since he would be there anyway and it saved us the extra trip.
I’m thankful for the brilliance that is the internet. It blesses us with the ability to run our business not only from home, but from anywhere which allows us to spend time with family whenever we feel.
