Thursday Thanks Tank #205

Each week, in an effort to focus on thankfulness, I make a gratitude list. It's not a complete list. It is a great exercise for growing gratefulness. Sometimes I post it. I haven't been good at posting consistently for a while.

I am thankful for:

Cooler temperatures for running
A trip away without kids
My parents
My parents being willing and able to watch my kids
An allergy safe Halloween
An allergy safe week while I was away
Candles- just ordered some, can't wait to get them
Exciting news
Expectant moms
Coffee (because I don't wake up quickly)
New experiences
Confidence (exhibited in a child that once had very little)
An ability to let go
Being able to love the unlovable
the fun of college football (come on, Bama, we need this win on Saturday!)
Birthday celebrations
Amazon Prime (without it, an upcoming birthday would be more stressful)
My mom's fudge (which my kids have convinced her to make every time they see her... it's not just for the holidays any more!)
My husband (still hard at work...  love the Amazon!)
Crockpot dinners on  busy nights
Incredible teachers
Being able to recognize myself (my traits- both positive and negative) in my kids
Seeing my child persevere
School pictures
Snail mail
Direct flights
