Thankful Thursday: June 10, 2010

The days are just whirring past me
like bees from flower to flower...
something about June and the beginning of summer
that makes everything move--at buzzing speed!

Or perhaps it is because... 4 days my little man turns TWO

Or maybe it is because... 11 days the movers will be here packing all of our JUNK

Or it could be because... 15 days we will officially be living in another STATE

Or because... less than 60 days I am "due" to double the number of CHILDREN in our family


Buzz. Buzz. Buzz!

Of course, the stinging string of goodbyes (goodbye to my 1 year old, goodbye to the control over where my stuff is packed, goodbye to Wisconsin, goodbye to our family o' three) is soothed by sweet thankful salve.

Ahem: Yes I do love alliteration, thank you very much!

I present to you, my Thankful thoughts today:

  • I'm thankful for those times when Mr. H and I are so in sync with our routines that we get everything on our list done in record time, celebrating with fist bumps & smiles
  • I am thankful for the sweet prayers that have been slurred from toddler lips (see most recent Toddler Tales post)
  • I am thankful for the new home we will be moving into (which I saw for the first time this last weekend), the calm neighborhood, and the massive walk-in closet that I will soon be filling with my above-mentioned junk!
  • I am thankful for the thoughtful men & women who took the time to say hello and introduce themselves to us last Sunday in our new ward
  • I am thankful for Lynn-the-kind-CNM who I saw yesterday for the last last prenatal visit before the move! (Everything is looking great!)
  • I am thankful for a side-kick to color on my scrap paper and help me with my baking projects (mostly by playing with his cars at my feet, keeping me on my toes--quite literally!)
  • I am thankful that my Mom is only a quick speed-dial button away. Sometimes calling her is all I need to go forward with my day!

Ok, Queen Bees & Drones alike...
What's your Thankful Buzz today?

I am thankful that school ends this week and we get a 3 month reprieve from extra chaos.

I am thankful for the new adventures that await us with our move.

I am thankful to be moving closer to my parents but still only a 10 minute drive from the in-laws.

I am thankful for the pool at the new house.

I am thankful to read your posts and feel like we are keeping in touch though it's been so long since we've seen each other.

I am thankful for things like Thankful Thursday that makes us pause to consider the GOOD in our lives. Too much bad news going around. It overwhelms the good but the GOOD is so much better and so much more than the bad and we forget that at times! Also thankful for alliteration. I love it too and it makes me smile! Thankful that my sister has come thru eye surgery and is on the way to healing. Praise God for all His blessings .. too many to know, much less count!
