quote of the night

I ordered a pizza for the three kids (Addi is here tonight). I answered the door and the delivery dude was like, “I wouldn’t normally say something like this to a customer, but holy shit that is a huge Christmas tree. It’s beautiful. Can I be here on Christmas morning? Do your kids know how lucky they are?!” It sounds a bit weird when I read it back, but I promise it was actually really sweet and cute and genuine.

attitude of gratitude

Today I’m thankful for:

My husband. He’s my soul mate. I never really believed in mushy stuff like that before I met him. Now I’m big sappy love chick.

My kids. They’re growing up so fast, but they’re loving, kind, smart, and all around awesome people. I’m forever grateful for the privilege of watching them grow up.

My fur babies. Violet and Bismarck. 🐈🐶

My lovely friends, old and new. I feel like we’ve fallen into this fantastic group of people. I remember when D and I had no friends in common, and now we have this big group of awesome people who love and support us. We may not have great relations with either of our extended families, but we’ve created a family out of friends.

Our lovely home. Our stability. Our health. I know some people who are struggling with absolutely awful things right now. My thoughts are with them today.
