Today I’m thankful for the laundry I had to fold, because that meant we had clothes to wear, and clean ones at that.

I’m thankful for the dishes that needed washing because that means I had food to feed my children.

I’m thankful for the dirty disaster of my house, because that means I have a home to clean.

I’m thankful for the headache meds I took earlier today because that means my girls are happy and healthy and love playing (loudly) with each other.

I’m thankful for the sinus infection my oldest has because that means we have access to the doctor and the medications (antibiotics and Motrin) that will make her well.

This post is my first attempt at a blog challenge, something you might see friends doing on Facebook – “__ days of Giving Thanks.” I thought this was a very fitting challenge to get myself back into a regular habit of blogging again. Feel free to join me, and post your own blog link in the comments below, so we can keep up with each other! Follow others that are participating HERE.
