Week 6 Gratitudes and Photo #6

This week’s photo theme was “soft.” I had several ideas on how I was going to approach the theme but nothing felt quite right. Until…

Last night we FINALLY got some snow. It wasn’t a whole lot but it warranted getting out my snow boots (which I love!) for church. The reason I love my snow boots so much is because there is a wonderful soft layer inside that cushions my feet while keeping me nice and warm. They are waterproof so I don’t have to worry about the snow that melts on them and the soles are a nice thick rubber that keeps me safe on the treacherous ice.

Having spent most of my life living in Arizona and California, I haven’t ever owned (except as a child in the midwest) a pair of snow boots. Our first year in Delaware these were a much needed purchase as I was 6 plus months pregnant and they got the most snow in history. Now I just treasure those wonderful days when I can get away with wearing my boots that are like slippers for outdoors.

Just looking at them makes my toes want to jump into them! (And if you know me, you know that I am a barefoot kinda gal, which means this is a huge compliment for these shoes!)

Now that I have gushed about the amazing-ness of my boots, lets move onto my gratitudes of the week.

(Note: As I was preparing this week’s photo I realized that I had miscounted last week! Oops! So this is photo number 6, not 5. 😛 )

S had to have tubes put into his ears due to constant ear infections, on Wednesday. It was a long, stressful day. Diabetes makes everything 10 times worse. But even with the trials we are still very blessed. So here are this week’s gratitudes.

Gratitude 37: I am grateful for all the wonderful bloggers out there who share their creative ideas. I am especially grateful for the moms who homeschool and have shared their resources and printables for free. I am looking forward to getting started on some basics with my little guys in an informal version of “tot school.” I think it will be a lot of fun for all three of us! (Stay tuned for more information on our adventures in tot school.)

Gratitude 38: I am grateful for time with friends, and meals with the family.

Gratitude 39: I am so grateful that S’s surgery (tubes in ears) went well and that he was acting like himself this evening.

Gratitude 40: I am grateful for dinner with a friend. Mommy time is so necessary!

Gratitude 41: Not feeling too grateful today. I guess I am grateful that the kids are finally in bed so that I can go to bed. I am one tired mama who doesn’t feel too great. 😦  (Even on a day when I can’t see my blessings there are still blessings to be found! Thank God that I am on a journey to find them!)

Gratitude 42: Its been snowing most of the evening. S and I journeyed through it earlier, which was fun and cold. I love seeing him learn and explore. Its so much fun to see that light go on in his brain.

Gratitude 43: I am grateful for the laughter of my little T as he plays with daddy. Nothing is sweeter to the soul than a happy baby.

May you see the blessings that surround you as we enter into a new week!

I love to hear what you are thinking!
