Amanda’s new website, Mama to Mama. This is an amazing idea from an equally amazing and talented artist and mom.
This week I am most thankful for CHANGE:
Even though we currently don’t reside in the U.S. my husband, along with many others, fight for it everyday. We had our absentee ballots in as early as possible this year and are very excited for the changes our country will experience over the next 4 years. I am so thankful that I will remember, forever, where I was when our country elected its first African American Democratic President. I was actually snuggled up in my bed since I live 6 hours ahead of the Eastern Time Zone but nevertheless, hubby and I awoke before the crack of dawn to find out the exciting news.
Our car broke down today – broke down as in will cost more to repair than replace. We have a baby due in less than 4 weeks and have no wheels. Yet, I am thankful! Thankful that we won’t have to pay $60+ a tank for this gas-guzzling hunk of junk any longer. Thankful that this was the final push for us to get a new car, we had been holding out as long as possible. Thankful that it happened today, when I was home from my doctor appt. and not on the way home from the hospital with our new little baby.
Getting ready for Christmas early.
You know you are getting ready for Christmas too early when your decorations are up before the ones at the mall. A friend of mine joked that I wasn’t giving Thanksgiving any respect by putting up my Christmas decorations early. I beg to differ. I am merely getting ready for the holiday now so I can spend ample time with little Tripp when he arrives in a few weeks. The last thing I’m going to want to do in between feeding and changing my new little man is stringing the lights on the tree.
What are you thankful for this week?
