Hello and happy new year!  I meant to post last week but life is busy!  I’ve been trying to remember to be grateful and to teach my boys gratitude as well but nothing beats writing it down to really get in the gratitude mindset.  Here’s what I’m thankful for today:

  1. I’m thankful for my job, my boss, my coworkers, and the amazing working environment they all create together.  Going back to work after having Auggie, while a bit sad, wasn’t very hard at all because of the people and place I came back to.  Everyone was so welcoming and being back feels almost like I wasn’t gone for 4 months!  Also, I’m so thankful to my work for the more than standard maternity leave with 4 months with Auggie and 6 months with Carter and Morgan.  I’m so blessed to work here!
  2. I’m grateful for my husband who is quickly learning how to manage 2 toddlers and a baby by himself so that I can, on occasion, have “me” time.  I was able to go to dinner and a movie with friends last weekend and happy hour this week!  I feel like having that time really helps me recharge and be a better mommy.  Thanks Ben!
  3. I’m so thankful for a break from the super cold weather we’ve had.  The temperature is in the 50s and 60s today and tomorrow.
  4. I’m grateful for my 3 boys whose hugs and smiles always make me feel loved and bring me back to what’s important.
  5. I’m grateful for my new work desktop and laptop.  They are making doing my job so much easier!

Happy day friends!
