i’m a bit behind- i’ll blame post holiday mayhem. here’s the last week of november, and soon up… enjoying and celebrating the month of december!
day 22 – i’m thankful for these clear, cold, crisp days. so invigorating, so nice to be able to spend the daylight hours outdoors. even if it is freezing, that sun is just what i need.
day 23 – thankful for the opportunity to try my hand at freelance. it may be a bit of struggle, and i’m certainly figuring it out as i go, but the flexibility as a mom, and an artist… i’m thankful to try. i loved my job. but sometimes, the 9-5 wasn’t… awesome? i like that someone is giving me a chance, even a small one, and i’m doing my best to find a new path.
day 24 – hobbies- i’m thankful i have interests, and friends to share them with. books, sewing, design. i’m lucky to know so many creative people.
day 25 – thankful for skillful tradesmen. it may seem an odd one, but 2 men showed up at my house today, and my bathroom is transformed. yay them!
day 26 – I’m thankful for my son’s bright curiosity and quick, sharp mind. How when we drive along, if there is any D in any sign- it’s all for Des. I’m thankful today for the hug he gave my head as I sat on the floor and for the trillionth time picked up ‘treasure’. I love the things he finds humorous, even if I don’t share the glee.
day 27 – for a sweet daughter who starts every single day with smiles and near laughter. she is the sweetest. i couldn’t have imagined what she would be like, but in the best of imagining, i could have never come up with such a disposition. sweet girl.
day 28 – a whole month of feeling this gratitude. culminating in spending time with family and friends. i’m lucky, and i’m grateful.
