I have started a daily gratitude journal…and I love it. It really helps me clear my mind and focus on what is good right before I go to sleep. I’ve also really enjoyed looking back on here on Fridays on what was good in my week. Feel free to join me!
Here’s what made me happy this week…
The boys just LOVING soccer. Gabe said “I could just play soccer all day!” It makes those freezing cold, rainy practices and games that much easier to bear.
Olivia enjoying her first baseball game of the season. She hit the ball twice and actually made a fielding play! She threw the ball to the appropriate base. Best of all? She had fun.
Olivia has a crush on a boy on her baseball team. She has for years. He’s 20 and has Down’s syndrome and is adorable. He calls himself “The Beast”. She called him “muy caliente”. YIKES!!!
Matthew’s skinny little frame. He was sitting at the dinner table shirtless the other night and I just smile at how cute he is and how my fat baby became this skinny little guy.
Playing Quirkle with my boys after dinner. We were cracking up because it was Matt’s first time playing and he was awful at it. He’s good at everything!
Gabe threw an ever-loving fit the night before the math standardized test. It was awful, it kept us all up late and I was angry. But I was also really thankful that he feels safe enough with us to express his anger. Not everyone has that safe feeling.
Matt and I were able to sit and watch a movie on Tuesday night. That’s always bliss.
My Mom. I just love her and she is so helpful. I’m so thankful I have her.
What made you happy this week?
