This Thursday I am thankful for:
Only being called a 'mean old thing' six times today instead of the usual ten.
Being told 'I am sorry' for hitting and screaming and crying after thirty minutes of maniacal hitting and screaming and crying.
Hot coffee, strawberry pancakes and crock pot stew.
An hour with my sewing machine.
A few hours spent laughing with my family.
A deep bathtub filled to the edge with hot water and scented bubbles.
Having finally de-Christmas-fied my house, although my mantel looks oh so sad.
The small flock of chickadees that hung out by my kitchen window during my cup of coffee.
Lighting a fire in the fireplace - it was pathetic but it cheered me up.
My brown velour blanket - it is the Calgon version of a blanket, ahhhh.
