I turned on the news this morning to see that there had been another crash or something in which two aircraft were involved and the possibility for survivors is little to none. It's been a bad month for things that fly, or at least there has been more coverage of it.
It makes me think... a lot, and it makes me want to hold my family closer and appreciate the little things that really, aren't so little.
I am thankful for every poopy diaper I change.... because every dirty bottom is attached to a sweet face that gives me kisses.
I'm thankful for every hand print left on my white walls.... because every dirty hand is attached to the arms that wrap around me so snugly for hugs.
I'm thankful for every dinner I make that is less then gourmet.... because we have food.
I'm thankful every time the sticky food covered child who sits next to me steals food off my plate.... because at least we are together to eat as a family.
I'm thankful for the times that my husband is late getting home when all I want is a break.... because that means he's here to come home.
I'm thankful for getting caught in a downpour at getting drenched and then having to go pick up dash-1 at school looking like a wet dog.... because at least I'm able to be there to pick him up and share his day with him.
I'm thankful for (granted its hard to be at the time) temper tantrums and nasty attitudes.... because it allows me to show my children that I love them irregardless.
I'm thankful for the downs... because it makes the ups mean so much more.
What are you thankful for?
