I’m introducing a new feature to the blog: Thankful Thursday. Each week I’ll be posting a list of what I’m thankful for. I was inspired by my family’s ‘gratitude journal’ when I was a kid. My mom bought this little floral notebook for me, my mom and brothers to write down 3 things we are thankful for each day. It was around the time my dad left so it was important to her that we all stay positive and remember how truly blessed we are in every day life. We all kept this up for a while but sadly it fell by the wayside. Now, nearly a decade later I’m bringing it back in the form of a personal blog post.
- My jobs: even though I may not like all aspects of them I’ve very thankful for the extra income and an excuse to leave the house
- My in laws: they bought me a new stove for my birthday!
- This past long weekend: David has been working a lot lately and sometimes I work evenings so we haven’t been able to spend a lot of time together. We both had all 3 days of the Labour Day weekend off which was great.
