One of my favorite bloggers is doing a daily challenge for the month of November... thought I'd join in. She is going to post one thing she is thankful for everyday as a way to not cruise through the holidays without pause and gratitude...she said it will just be a sentence each day or maybe even just a word. For me, it might one thing...or six.
(I am going to attempt to post this at 11:11 on 11-11-11, 'cuz that would be really cool)
Day 11 - I am thankful for the men and women of our armed forces who serve and sacrifice without the recognition they deserve.
I am also thankful for my amazing husband who took 3 of our 4 children to WI Dells for the weekend. all by himself. And is having an amazing time.
I am also thankful (I think) for the opportunity of being home alone, (all alone, for more than a school day) for the first time since before my oldest child was born. (He's 14 and at his friend's house for the night) It's slightly unsettling - pretty sure I won't sleep well. But I enjoyed not having to cook or clean up after anyone's dinner but my own and I think I will enjoy not having a certain little guy waking me to ask me to find him socks or whether or not he can have the last doughnut for breakfast.
