a grateful heart [part two]

Today, I'm thankful for...

November 9th: unexpected lesson in kindness, aka the crabby receptionist at the tumbling gym we go to every Friday for showing me that I shouldn't be so judge-y when she tracked down my phone number to tell me I left my driver's license there.

10th: ...Netflix. Getting caught up on all the shows and movies I missed in Lorelei's first 9 months makes me feel like I have my sh*t together.

11th: ...the immeasurable sacrifices of others. Thank you, veterans.

12th: ...the residual effects of a day spent almost entirely by myself, window shopping and eating lunch as slowly as I wanted and not having to share any of my fries or worrying about the mess we were leaving behind.

13th: ...a mug of tea and a good book. Make that a beautiful mug you bought on your solo day out so that every time you use it you think about how great it was to have a day all to yourself.

14th: ...the woman at Hy-Vee who helped a very sad little boy find his "missing" mom. I hope someone will be looking out for Lorelei like that someday.


  1. Great list! I'm glad you had some alone time, I hope you walked verrrry slowly :)

  2. So good. Love #13- I'll have to do that...if I ever get a whole day to myself w/o worry or guilt for leaving my husband w the kids!
