The Grump

Peter doesn't get grumpy very often but when he does I notice.  Most of the time I notice before he does, point it out, and make him even more grumpy.  I think I have a case of the "I didn't realize I was grumpy but clearly I am" lately. usual time to make an "I'm thankful for" list.  Because I have so many things!!

*My children were angels, yes angels, during our 15 hour trip back from KY.  We had to go unexpectedly for my Grandaddy's funeral and honestly I was dreading the trip.  2 hours in the car, 2 flights and a 4 hour layover in Denver.  Seriously they were amazing.  I'm sure our traveling companions were thankful for that too!

*My house smells fabulous.  Absolutely fabulous.  We got the perfect tree last night and although it only has lights on it I already find myself getting in the Christmas spirit.

*My children are currently napping simultaneously.  I do realize that as soon as I hit the "publish" button they were probably both wake up but for now I'm thankful. (This was yesterday....I'm praying for a repeat today!)

*My dear husband is master's complete.  Complete!!!  I can't even express in words how excited I am that he is finished writing papers!!!  This means that when he comes home at night we can actually hang out.  Did I mention how excited I am?

*I no longer have a HUGE whole in my kitchen ceiling.  We had a leak the first week in October and have had a hole since then.  Ridiculous!!  Finally they put the last coat of mud on this morning and I have my kitchen back.  Hallelujah!!

*The sun was shining here today.  Albeit it was raining simultaneously but still!  It was beautiful.

*I LOVE our new church.  It took us a while to find one because Peter was gone for so long but now that we are settled and meeting people it is wonderful!  Did I mention it is 2 blocks from our house?

*Even though the circumstances were sad I'm so happy my boys got extra time to spend with their extended family, especially Ma & Pa!

What a nice list of things for which to be thankful! I am sorry about your grandfather. May you find comfort in your memories of him. You inspired me to take time and think of some of my blessings. Thank you

What a sweet list! I agree - it's so nice to make a "thankful" list when you're feeling grumpy. Also, my husband is done with law school next April and I can't wait! I bet you're super stoked to be on to bigger and better things. :-)
