I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?
This week I'm grateful for:
My mini wet bag: I picked this up about a year ago on a whim, knowing that I would need it in the months to come. It was made by a WAHM (Work At Home Mom) somewhere out there and she is amazing. At the church picnic this past Sunday, I neglected to presume that water would be involved in multiple forms of the children's play and only brought one change of clothes for each child and two changes of diapers. I used everything. Needless to say, I had a lot of wet stuff. This little wet bag held two outfits, two pocket diapers, two microfiber inserts, one prefold, two fitted diapers, a cover and three cloth wipes. Thank you for existing, my dear wet bag.
My car: I love my car. It's awesome. I've had it since 2002 and it has kept me safe all that time. When I drove home last weekend, we had some challenges, but we made it there and back in one piece. Thanks, car.
My GPS: Yet another device in my life that annoys the crap out of me, I am thankful for its existence because it still helps me get to places I haven't been before. Additionally, it reminds me how to get places I may have been before but am not quite sure of. I can overlook the fact that it occasionally wants me to go down roads that don't exist as long as I get where I'm going.
My phone: In the absence of my GPS device, I have the ability to use my phone. I can use it to cross-reference the route my GPS wants to take me and to look up all sorts of great information. Although it is slightly addicting, I am grateful to have it because it keeps me connected to the outside world. (And I can check the weather every five seconds.)
Heidi: She has become so helpful lately it's astounding. And no, I'm not exactly eliciting it any more than I have been, she's just growing up. I love watching it and I am so, so grateful that I am able to watch her grow every day.
