Hi friends!

I have a weekend full of gratitude to share!

  1. I’m thankful for my mom visiting this past weekend.  I know that it’s not always fun, easy, or cheap to travel so I’m extremely grateful when someone comes to visit, especially by plane.  As a matter of fact, when my sister and brother ask me what I want for Christmas, I usually say that I just want them to come visit!  I’m so thankful my mom was able to come and spend time with us.
  2. I’m grateful for the amazing weather we had this past weekend.  It was so nice and warm out that mom, the boys, and I (and Ben)  got outside every day she was here.  We spent time at Fridays After Five, ate on the patio at The Bebedero, went to the City Market, shopped on the Downtown Mall, and played a bunch in our yard.
  3. I’m thankful for my mom and her delicious home cooking.  Saturday night, she made us one of my favorites dishes, swedish meatballs, with green beans, strawberry, spinach, poppy seed salad, egg noodles, and apple cheddar jalapeno scones.  We also had apple dumplings with vanilla ice cream for dessert!  I’ve always loved my mom’s cooking and it is a treat when she cooks for Ben, the boys, and I.
  4. I’m grateful for a mom who is a great role model for me as a mother and also a fun and amazing grandma to my boys.  Even though the boys don’t see her often since she lives in Texas, they always warm up to her right away.  It’s so important to me that they have a relationship with their family so I’m thankful for the people in my life who make the effort to make those relationships happen.
  5. I’m grateful for my mom’s wisdom, knowledge, and smart advice.  I’ve had some financial things that I’ve needed to get in order for a while and mom helped me a bunch while she was here to get things organized and understand some financial information that I’ve been wanting to learn about.

Thank you mom for being amazing and being you!

Happy day friends!
