Gratitude List!

The Templeton's are still around! We have been enjoying every minute of this awesome weather! We had a wonderful Spring Break and the kids and I have been trying to get back into the swing of things this week. I have missed blogging, hopefully I will get better at taking pictures and can post more!

Some one much wiser than me :) always recommends on hectic days or weeks to make a gratitude list from A-Z to put things in perspective so I am going to do one for my blog! We are so blessed every day and I need to always remember that when life gets busy!

I am GRATEFUL for:

A - Always checking on my kids after they have gone to sleep and seeing their beautiful and peaceful faces right before I go to sleep.

B- Being available to everyone around me (friends, family, Tex, kids, etc...)

C - Continuing to grow each day and learn who I am as an individual, mom, daughter, friend, wife

D - Daily Blessings - small victories for my children, a good day at work, an awesome dinner, a beautiful sunrise

E - Every new day that God gives me to be a better person

F- Friendships!!!!!

G - Girlfriends!!!!

H - Husband, without him I would not be able to keep it together!

I - Inventions that make my life easier like organizing bins! ha!

J - Jesus

K - Kindness that is shown to me each day even from complete strangers

L - Love (One of my favorite quotes.. "Three things will last forever--faith, hope, and love--and the greatest of these is love."

M - My "mommy" time that allows me to re-charge and decompress!

N - Naps, they are still one of my favorite things in the world even if they are few and far between!

O - Outdoors, the sun can change my mood instantly!

P - Presents! Getting and Receiving! haha I LOVE giving someone a present that I know will make them happy!

Q - Quality time with anyone! With two small kids it is hard to get real quality time with people so I appreciate those quiet conversations so much more!

R - Relaxing!

S - Sushi - I love it!

T - Taking Baths! There is nothing better for me than a Sunday night bath with the latest In Touch Magazine! Guilty Pleasure and I love it!

U - Unconditional Love

V - Variety, for a creature of habit I am GRATEFUL for allowing myself to experience variety and be ok with it!

W - Wisdom from others.... I love hearing others share their stories because in every story I find a little piece of my own life and a little wisdom on how to better handle situations!

X - X-tra hugs from the kids! (Ok I cheated, couldn't think of a darn thing that started with X :)

Y - You! Everyone that has come in and out of my life has touched in me in some way and I will forever be grateful for each relationship I have had!

Z - Zoo! I LOVE the zoo and watching the kids see all of the animals for the first time. Some of my favorite memories of the kids have been from the zoo!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I hope to post some pictures soon!
