It’s Monday morning and I turn around and it’s already Friday?! This week has flown by – they always do. Sometimes, in the midst of the busy days, it helps me to pause and look back at the week and focus on the things I appreciate, the things that boosted my happiness.
This week I am thankful for:
- Mandisa’s song “These Days.” It perfectly captures life at this moment and has been on repeat at my house this week.
- Renovation Progress. We have almost completed renovating the downstairs. When I say “we” I mean Mike – I’m not handy. At all. Our home was considered livable when we moved in 2 years ago, but even the rooms we occupy were far from truly finished. This week Mike has made significant progress in finishing renovations to the back entryway. Even with the inevitable mess of construction dust, dirty floors, etc. just knowing we are completing the downstairs has made me veeeeeery happy.
- Childcare at the Gym. The option of being able to work out alone…in peace….and not having to get up at 4:30 or 5:00 to do so is a huge thing for me. I wasn’t sure that adding a monthly gym membership to our budget was a great idea (we still have so much to do renovating our house that it seemed like a potential “waste” of money), but Mike talked me into it and it’s been awesome. I love being able to drop my kids off and enjoy a good workout.
What are you thankful for this week?
