A friend who can decorate Barbie cakes (Isn’t she pretty and you would be totally blown away by how fast my friend decorated her)

Ass cream and Hairy Queen.  I love how the girls search for a way to say a word when they don’t know, or just can’t remember.

And there are no words how thankful I am for a hubby/daddy who knows how to rollerblade/rollerskate!!!  I tried, I really did.  I ended up in tears from frustration, embarrassment and failure.

I am beyond thrilled my walker of days gone by, that I leaned on so heavily to get from one point to another when my brain couldn’t tell the rest of my body quite how to work, are now being used by little girls learning to skate.

I am hopelessly in love with a man who will come home and help our absentminded 6 year old look for her glasses she lost, again.  He searched and cleaned with her…so mama didn’t go bezerk yelling at her.

I am so blessed to have him for so many reasons.  He plants a garden and then cans yummy things for us to enjoy all winter.

I run as often as possible and I am so excited that my distances are increasing and I am now running far enough that my 8 year old declares she is not going with me anymore because I run too much.  I so appreciate that my hubby never seems to begrudge me my running time and I can’t express what all the support from friends on Facebook and text message means to me.  It makes my heart sing and my smile huge.

My heart sings with the beautiful weather we have been happening.  And I am VERY proud of myself that when I took the girls to the waterpark yesterday, and found that the 6 year old had no shoes with her whatsoever, even after being told to get them and asked countless times if she had them, that I kept my cool and that her sisters, while deeply disappointed, didn’t give her too hard of a time when we had to go home instead of having fun.

These are my 10 things I am thankful for.  How about you?

Thanks to my friend at Make Mommy Go Something Something,  I found this blog hop and am joining in over at Considerings
