Being Thankful Instead of Whining

Tonight I am exhausted.  Beyond exhausted.  I have crammed 2 weeks worth of activities and cleaning into 2 days.  And the hubs is sick.  Nora Virus is going around something fierce in Western NC and it has made its way to our house.  It isn't a surprise since I think I've taken about 476 people by ambulance to the hospital for the exact same thing.

Today I really just want to whine and be a really big baby but I'm not going to.  Instead I'm going to make a thankful list.

I'm thankful for(in absolutely no particular order):

  • Salvation
  • Caffeine in the mornings and afternoon and the evening too
  • Grace both common and special
  • A healthy Clayton
  • 8 weeks until graduation
  • Family that loves me in spite of me
  • Planning special things
  • Netflix
  • Pinterest
  • An amazing church family
  • A husband that works really hard so that I can dream big
  • Clean sheets on the bed(where I will very soon be.....YAY!!)
  • Hearing a child sing childish songs in the bathtub
  • New tires
  • Pink scarves
  • Homemade organic and all natural chocolate chip cookies
  • Johanna
  • Clorox and vinegar(one to disinfect the Nora Virus, the other to take away the smell of Clorox)
  • Electricity and Internet
I don't feel like whining any more.  And that is the point.
