Thankfulness Challenge

365 Days of Thankfulness – Day 9

Well, I made it through this Monday, despite the rain, a crazy schedule, my hubby being out of town for his mom’s surgery and feeling like I can’t possibly catch up on my to-do list.  Let’s get a little more grateful though…


Tonight I am thankful for an incredibly tasty dinner with friends.  And it was all an unexpected surprise.  Yesterday, I was thankful for our preschool experience and today that preschool teacher was babysitting my DD.  She told me they would be having dinner at the “twins'” house – twins that went to preschool with my DD and live a couple of houses down from her.  When I arrived to pick her up, I had been trying to figure out what I was going to eat for dinner, since I figured they would have already eaten.  Well, when I got there, there was a smoked turkey, smoked tri-tip, garlic mashed potatoes, garlic bread…and everything was soooooo good.  It was such a relief to know I didn’t have to go home and make myself something and I got to hang out and talk to friends for almost an hour.  It was definitely a welcome relief after a longish Monday and looking forward to a lot to do over the next few days!
