gratitude, mum's thoughts, Thankful Thursday

Although it is still cold in the morning, the weather is beginning to feel a lot like summer especially in the afternoon. Even when I do love the hot temperature, especially when I am doing my weekly laundry and other chores around the home, some days are becoming way too hot for comfort and I am starting to be quite lethargic. It is way too hot, indeed, all I ever wanted is to lie in the couch and get some precious zzz. I only hope the little man is also up to the task. He is quite apt at dodging his afternoon naps fighting his sleepiness as much as he can!

I was not able to make my Thankful Thursday list last week as I ran out of time {not that I am really too busy, but I was rather preoccupied beating deadlines and doing a gazillion of other things}, so I might as well include a bunch of my thankfuls from last week in my list for this week.

I am thankful for the following:

  • for lazy afternoons spent with my loves
  • for our new haircut {it has been ages since I last had one and I am sure my locks are very thankful, for a much-needed trim, too}
  • for precious garage sale finds {I finally got me another copy of The Alchemist for only Php80, thanks to the neighbor’s yard sale. I also got a copy of another Coelho book, which I am only delighted to add to my collection}
  • for the little one’s good performance in school
  •  watching the Grammys
  • for the film Paddington, which the little man absolutely adores!
  • for hearty and mouth-watering home-cooked meals
  • for the continuously good weather
  • for accumulating a bulk of children’s books for my little bookworm to enjoy, especially now that he already knows how to read!
  • for tender kisses and warm hugs  :heart:
  • for a thankful heart
  • for the privilege of being a mother
  • for being productive
  • for rest, especially when I need it the most
  • for the comfort and security of home and family
  • for a good night’s sleep
  • for lovely surprises in the mail

We do not really need to look too hard to find endless things to be thankful for and grateful for each day. The very breath we take each time we awoke is in itself a very big blessing from above. So here’s to always keeping a thankful heart and counting every blessing that we receive!  :-)
