A friend/coworker posted a status on facebook the other night:
Thankful, just thankful and HAPPY!
To which I responded:
I was just thinking the same thing.
Can I get a Hallelujah Chorus?
We had such a great day on Monday, the kids and I. We didn't even do anything that remarkable, but we finally had the gift of time and it felt good!
The house was clean. Heck, I even wiped down and oiled the cabinets!
The laundry was mostly caught up.
Football is over!!!!
The Girl and I made cupcakes.
Both kids played outside with the neighbors.
We all got holiday haircuts.
Dinner simmered on the stove all day.
There was a casserole in the freezer for the next day.
The dishes were cleaned up and we had time to play Risk AND read.
I felt like I had my feet back underneath me. Like I was the kind of mom I used to be. It was a gift and I knew it.
I'm so thankful.
Here's hoping I hold on to that feeling and there are many, many more days like this much more often!
