So much to be thankful for!
It has been one week without our beloved Savannah, and it's getting less painful. Cooper hasn't cried since Sunday. He wrote 2 of his 4 required spelling word sentences about her which tells me that he's still mourning but is dealing with it in a way that works best for him. I am so thankful that his little heart is healing. We are all smiling at stories and thoughts of her now although she is so missed! I am thankful that she was a part of our family and that Cooper truly knows the meaning of mans best friend.
I am also thankful for the kind words about Savannah, both on my comments and via e-mail and phone calls. They were all so comforting.
I am thankful for a wonderful group of women and the chance to spend a "girls night at the lake" with them. We're leaving on Friday at 5 and I'm looking forward to lots of laughs, good food and a few hard core rounds of dominoes (stop the madness, I know!!). My boys are headed to the boat show & a night without mom. I think we'll all have a blast!
I am thankful for my wonderful husband- who so gladly supports my need for girl time and makes it so easy to walk out the front door without a care in the world. Well, maybe a few!!
I am thankful for the prayers and well wishes for our 44th President. I watched portions of the Inauguration on Tuesday and listened to my friends at Fox and was struck with an overwhelming optimism and feeling of how much a part of history the day really was. I am truly hopeful of his time in office- despite my vote in November!
I'm not a resolution maker- but have tried to set some goals for myself in the new year. In a post this fall that I cannot now find to save my life, I outlined things that I was going to try to do- and have been successful only with my 3X weekly walks in the early (and now incredibly cold) mornings (although since I can't find the post, I'm not completely positive that the walking in the morning was on the list. I know that walking up the steps at work was and that lasted about 10 days). Things that I am adding to my list are taking vitamins daily and creating weekly menus. I'm thankful that I've been able to follow through on these for 2 weeks- must keep up the journey!
The weeks of cold winter weather are moving by quickly- for which I am SO thankful! I actually saw little daffodil tips popping up in our yard. I cannot wait for spring!!
Enjoy your weekend!!
