Thankful Thursday 5-2-13

Hey guys,

This week I've been working on catching up on things around the house. My to-do list is just a little bit ridiculous right now. I'm quickly learning as a mom that there is always some project left unfinished. There are always clothes in the hamper and that brief 5 minutes (seriously?!) that it's empty are bliss. This is hard for a perfectionist like me, but I'm learning to manage and prioritize my life. It's a good thing too, because it makes my down time a lot less stressful. Also I'm sorry I have been slack on visiting your blogs and commenting. I'm working on that. I promise. :)

So now that I have gotten that out of my system, it's time to think on what I have to be thankful for this week.

* I'm thankful for time. I'm thankful for the moments, however, brief they are to just relax. I'm thankful for the crazy chaotic moments with my son. I'm thankful for the beautiful snuggly moments with him too. ;) I'm thankful for sweet hugs from my husband and coffee waiting for me this morning. Yep, he is that awesome and sweet. I'm convinced I married the best. ;) Sweet moments to play with my crazy pup. Yep, she's 4 and still a pup and that will never change. <3 b="">

*Opportunities.I'm thankful for opportunities to share my faith and my blog with others. I'm thankful for companies that are interested in my blog for giveaways and product reviews. I'm thankful for those loyal readers who have contributed to these opportunities.

*Family dinners. Tonight we will be enjoying a meal with my Father-in-law and Step-Mother-in-law. I look forward to catching up with them and watching them marvel at how much my sweet baby boy has grown!

*Southern Savers.  I'm thankful for this website because I'm getting back into couponing and it has been a wonderful resource. Do you coupon? Any recommendations on websites? Tips or tricks?

What are you thankful for this week?

  1. thanks for stopping by babe. What wonderful things to be thankful for, I love to show off our son to family too, nothing better than sharing our love for him.

    You said it, even the crazy moments are beautiful blessings, every moment is a joy.

  2. Oh boy! The things we learn when we become a mom...and it just continues and continues and continues. :) I am a perfectionist too. Have had to get over so much of it in the last 6 years. ;-)

    I am thankful that although we have SNOW here in NE Iowa this morning, because it is May there's no way it can stick around for too long!! HA!

    Blessings on your thankful heart.


  3. Some great things to be thankful for!
    Hope dinner is wonderful -- nothing like watching grandparents with babies!

  4. Thanks for linking up this week again.
    I know what you mean about just crazy and just needing the time to relax.
    Have a good week.

  5. Such wonderful things to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing with us, and joining us today! Don't forget there's nothing more important than you. Take time out for you. Hope to see you next week too! Have a great weekend.

  6. Time is everything when you are a busy mom. I used to despise waiting at Dr appointments or a long drive. Now I look at those times as down time and just totally enjoy the absolute quietness in my car and my ability to think a thought from start to finish!
    Sounds like you are adjusting so well and quickly.
    Hope you have a nice dinner with family....

  7. I love a bit of order returned to the house - a long to do list stresses me out!

  8. Family dinners and family in general is a lot to be thankful for!

  9. I remember those days time to hiccup! :) Couponing??? I do but nothing like on that show. Wish I could figure it out or mostly had the time to figure it out.


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
