Following on from my whinge post yesterday I thought I would do a thankful Tuesday post so that I didn’t seem like such a grump.
Obviously I am thankful for my family. Without these guys life would be dull, sad and boring. Vivi has taken to crawling around on the floor, when you ask her what she is doing she replies “I’s a wabbit”. Cutest thing ever.
Im thankful for babies who sleep on you. I’m typing this with Cora snoozing on me and it is the most peaceful, fulfilling and relaxing feeling ever. I’m sure she grows up a little bit every day but when she is feeding and sleeping she is still very much a baby. My baby.
Antibiotics. There are currently 3 people in my house on antibiotics. Im glad we have access to them. Im also glad that I have access to an abundance of information, and am currently looking into upping everyones fish oils, vitamins and improving our diet as it seems like we have been sick in one way or another since January!
Hoppy. For his birthday Maximilian decided to spend his birthday money on a bunny. We researched it and believe that caring for a pet and having someone who loves you no matter what (unlike parents who it can seem sometimes only love you if you tidy your room) could only be a positive force in our little mans life. Well, ‘Hoppy’ is just the dearest little bunny ever and we all love her! I’m not really a pet person but I do really love this rabbit. Upkeep is minimal and Maxi is pretty good about cleaning the hutch.
A roof over my head. For reals. I know too many people at the moment who are either stuck in unsuitable places, waiting to move, or paying through the nose for somewhere to live. It may not be mine but Im super thankful for this house. Im also thankful that we are moving towards a place of our own!
Motivation. So, ages ago I mentioned that I might like to run a marathon before I’m 30. I dont run. Ever. But, a few weeks ago I started and while I look horrific, sweat in places I did not know there were sweat glands and sometimes need to puke, as well as ache all over and walk a bit like a cowboy – I am so thankful that I am able to do this. Its so stupid but I didn’t think I could, and here I am, running. I ran for a full 5 minutes the other day and didnt die. Give it a few months and I might even manage swooshy hair running. I might not make 5 hours of running but I will finish the marathon in October.
Again, I feel so much better for getting those out. Sometimes I do get all down in the dumps and focus on all the crap stuff, its easy to get bogged down. I don’t like being that person. I always try and catch myself before going ‘there’ and focus on the blessings I have in my life. I really do have so much to be thankful for and sometimes its too easy to lose sight of that. Heres to a thankful week!
