I get stressed over money, our home addition, our back yard that is a never ending construction zone, Owain's next surgery, the piles of laundry, dirty dishes and this strange and endless overflowing of toys that come from 4 kids. I stress over my cracked windshield, the new tires I need and the strange sensor light on the dashboard. I stress over silly little things like a house covered in Cheerios even though I just cleaned them up, along with the never ending scattering of crayons and little scraps of paper that my happy little children left behind in a frenzy of brilliant craftyness.
I sleep very little at night (although at this point much of this is due to a very huge baby in the belly) and I spend my days worrying about dozens of things. Many times, I get through the day by turning my back on all of my stress and completely focus on my kids...but then when I try to focus on things again everything is so out of control that I don't know where to begin.
So to help me get through the week and get my head organized, I have decided to start Thankful Thursdays. Every Thursday I will post a quick list of things I am Thankful for, I would love it if you stopped back on Thurdsays to join me.
