Thanksgiving: Focus On Gratitude

Thanksgiving is this week, and I am going to be honest with you. I’m not feeling very thankful. Things have been a little rough for me lately, and it’s not just the presidential election bumming me out. Every morning my kids head off to school, and I mindlessly go through the motions of my day. I exercise, I eat…

Fostering an Attitude of Gratitude in our Families

With the holidays approaching and Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a great time to teach our children how to be thankful.  When I first became a parent, I thought my child would learn with ease how to not only say “thank you” but also be thankful.  Ahem…I have to say, it didn’t seem to come as easy as I thought it should.  When I began to hear myself repeating “Say, thank you” or “What do we say?” after someone would give my daughter a gift or do a nice act for her, I…

Thankful Thursday: To School on Time

I cannot be the only one...who is amazed at their child's lack of ability to just simply get out the door in a timely fashion.  Our school mornings have been hectic whirlwinds of velcro shoes, backpacks, and impromptu bicycle riding in the garage, adding up to a rushed and stressed out Mama that wants to throw in the towel.  Just recently though, I've noticed that it seems like we might have finally ironed out the morning wrinkles, and have been arriving at school ON TIME.

My…

Thankful Thursday: A Warm Weather Walk

I cannot be the only one...who is ready for their little one to head back into the halls of knowledge (or at least of crayons and construction paper).  Today, though I am thankful that the Southern California weather permitted us to take to the streets and walk our little hearts out...please visit me at I Cannot be the Only One...for the rest of my Thankful Thursday.…

The Obligatory Thankful List

I cannot be the only one...who feels obligated to have a list that shows all my gratitude ready at a moments notice to share with those around me on Thanksgiving.  Please don't misinterpret my sense of obligation with being ungrateful, I am very, very thankful for the many people and the things in my life, I am just not fond of an on the spot listing of those things (sometimes in front of a decent sized audience). To prepare myself for this spotlight on Thanksgiving I decided to put together…

DIY Thanksgiving Key Chain: Preschooler

This craft was not intended to be a Thanksgiving key chain. Matter-a-fact, it started off as a turkey headband. You know, those really cute turkey feathered headbands?

When I realized I didn’t have any 11×17…

The Challenge of Gratitude

Relationships are so disconnected these days that I often find myself stopping to wonder where exactly we went wrong. I remember growing up as a kid every Christmas my parents would receive so many cards that most of all the doorways in the house would be decorated from top to bottom with tons of Christmas cards they’d received from family and friends. However, those days have long since passed. Just this past Christmas my parents received 2 Christmas cards. The irony is that…

God's Treasure Chest

I was reading "All Things Bright & Beautiful" by Herriot while putting Henry to bed tonight and got to the part about this being the best time in your life and you don't realize it. When your children are young and all the wonderful

discoveries and pure joy that can be found amidst the sleep deprivation, revolving diaper changes and temper tantrums.

I just HAD to hug Henry then and I said, "Thank you God for my son" and absolutely, whole-heartedly meant it right then. Henry…

The Opposite of Wordless Wednesday

Have you ever felt the need to just ramble? Somehow make concrete all of the thoughts and ideas swirling through your head? Maybe the thoughts are all related, but you don't know how until you get it all out. That's what I feel like doing today, so, where most Mommy bloggers are posting pictures that say it all, I'm going to…

THANKSGIVING IN MAY! HUH? WHAT?





About 10 years ago, I started thanking God for stuff

before asking Him for stuff. I think I felt bad that I'd jump right into

my morning quiet time with a list of "gimme's." Admittedly, sometimes

it's hard to find thanks, like on days when I wake up & thankfulness

is eclipsed by sadness or…

Spring Thanks

This week, I’m thankful for the beauty and wonder of spring. Just when the days seem to begin heating up, a chilly, foggy day rolls in. Misty clouds float by outside, weaving between the trees out back. (Our home is at 5,000 feet, so we’re actually in the clouds.)



So, today is a day for us to cheer sun-filled days! Cheers to the Golden Poppy!…

Good bye, Schmorl's Node

This week, I’m thankful I can now say, “Good bye, Schmorl’s Node!” Although I know that each node is still actually there in my back, at least they’re no longer inflamed and making life uncomfortable. Who would’ve thought that adjusting from cup size C to cup size H when Glenn arrived could cause back pain?!



Thankful for my…

Outnumbered...and Loving It

This week I’m thankful for rhythm, patience (well, most of the time), and my three children.



Yes, we’re officially outnumbered. And yes, we’re loving it…most of the time.



I’m also thankful for my warm baby, snuggled up in bed with me. He’s found his smile now…though I’ve yet to capture it on film!…
