giving thanks { days 1-3 }

I tend to whine.
I mean, probably not to y'all, okay so maybe I have whined a touch here and there, but mostly I wine, oops I meant whine, to my close friends.

When you whine you forget all the things you could be thankful for.
So let's be thankful. Each week I will share some things I am thankful for, serious and silly.
Thank you November and everyone on Facebook for the great idea ;)

Of course these first three are a given, but still I am thankful for:

1. Mr.Wonderful, the one who 
-loves me no matter how many cabinet doors I leave open 
-helps sweep up the mountains of crumbs and dropped pieces of dinner
-takes the boys to the grocery store so I can have a few minutes alone in the house
-still holds my hand
2. the opportunity to spend every day being a mama (see above picture) and gets paid in big slobbery kisses and sticky hugs.
3. my faith... what a journey.

What about you?


  1. aw lindsay you are a dear. and we all whine. but gratitude certainly puts things in perspective huh?

    i'm thankful today but some good news i got yesterday that i've been praying for for a while now.

    i'm thankful for making dinner with that sweet man of mine and laughing the whole way through about all kinds of silly things.

    i'm thankful for really cool people i have met via the interweb...a.k.a. you:)))

  2. Yay for being thankful! Isn't November the perfect time? I love Rachel Reeves' project Thankful on Paper, but maybe I should up to being thankful daily!

  3. Elizabeth Caldwell (the artist of the illustration) managed to make whining look very pretty! :) I wish you lived closer and then we could wine - oops I mean whine - together, ha :)

  4. I'm thankful that we get to go out of town this weekend with some good friends, and I'm thankful for YOU & what a wonderful friend you have been (seriously).

  5. I love this month. I always try to document the things I'm grateful for. I will find inspiration from seeing you do the same! Thank you.

  6. Thanks for the reminder to be thankful! I'm thankful for the upcoming weekend today, and for family coming to visit over Thanksgiving :)

  7. love this post. why don't you blog more.

  8. I LOVE that picture :D
    Wine goes really well with whining, you know - along with girl friends, it's a much needed trinity in a busy mom's life ;)
    30 days of giving thanks is such a beautiful idea - now all I need is to find time ;)

  9. the idea of Each week share some "thanks" are great and beautiful, go for it
