Thankful for the little things.. (bc they're not so little)

A few years ago I learned a great way to teach myself all I'm grateful for is to write down 3 things I'm thankful for.  Yes, my 3 kids, always though I'm talking about the little things.  Things we tend to forget or let go of in passing the days away. There are so many fortunate moments for each and every one of us that go unrecognized because paying attention to them has never been influenced. Kids need to know that their life is never promised and neither are their parents.  Sometimes when it seems life has been so unfair it turns out that it's lead us exactly where we need to be. Losing someone or a good thing ending can really run a toll on one person and forget about it if they're responsible for the safety and well being of a child or children. It may seem pretty far fetched and down right stupid though whatever we lose; whoever we lose, it teaches us. 

"Our loss is another's rejoice" was the quote at the top of a drawing that displayed a person kneeling by the bed and holding the hand of a loved one who has passed away. At the same time, another loved one who has predeceased is hovering over the bed with their arms stretched out embracing the life and soul of that person. 

Today I am thankful for: 1. getting up on time to get both kids up and out to school. 2. My coffee tastes great 3. my boss
