It Happened

One day last week it happened.  I got older.  I'm still in my young 30's, but with each year that passes I know I'm creeping dangerously close to the mid-30's.  YIKES!  I don't feel my age, and I hope I never do.  I hope I always have the mindset that I'm in my 20's.

I have another bloggy friend that celebrated her 32nd birthday by remembering thirty-two things she is thankful for during this time in her life.  I really liked that idea so I'm stealing it.

Here are thirty-two things I'm thankful for since I'm 32 this year...

  1. My God
  2. My church
  3. My marriage
  4. Little Man
  5. Little Miss
  6. Littlest Man
  7. A beautiful home with each room filled
  8. The ability to exercise
  9. Sleep at night that lasts longer than 3 hours
  10. Naps...good restful naps
  11. Sleeping on my stomach or back
  12. Cookies straight out of the oven
  13. A sane mind (most days)
  14. Humorous moments
  15. My amazing friends
  16. Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper with Sonic ice
  17. Wonderful neighbors
  18. My Toms
  19. Ice cold water in my thermos 
  20. Teaching gymnastics
  21. Practical jokes
  22. Yoga pants
  23. Slouchy t-shirts
  24. Bubble baths 
  25. Long showers
  26. A healthy body
  27. My laptop
  28. Our extended family
  29. Relaxing evenings at home on the couch with Steven
  30. Date nights
  31. Hot baby breath on my neck
  32. Another year to experience life
Some things are trivial and very indicative of having a newborn right now, but I am truly thankful for all 32 items on this list.

What are you thankful for at this moment in your life?

along with being thankful for my kids...I'm thankful for a job so I can provide for them. Thankful for a vehicle. Thankful I can still afford gas. Thankful for new recipes to try! Thankful for a kitchen and all the necessities I need to cook. Thankful for cable tv and dvr (just got it back after 2.5 years of not having it. Thankful for my home. Thankful that you made me think positive at this moment!
