After having a pity party for myself, my mom reminded me to count my blessings. And she’s right - I have so much in my life to be thankful for. Here is a smattering of them.
Going to the library and picking up new books for both me and Brendan.
Brendan let me read him two books in a row. I know it doesn’t sound like much but this is a big deal for him. He loves to read but usually only by himself so the fact that he sat on my lap and let me read to him was super special.
Our car being fixed. After one whole week without it, it feels great to have it back. It could have cost us over $2000 to fix but luckily when the timing belt broke, it didn’t damage the engine so we were able to save a lot of money. My father-in-law told Chris that we had a 50% chance of that happening and I’m glad that we were lucky.
Actually, I don’t think it was luck. We were blessed in a major way with that one as we are is so many other things. I’m feeling extra grateful today.
