Yes, I got busy.
And life happened…
I was in a car accident.
Then we had a tornado.
No joke. I can not make this up.
I seriously need to write a book!
We are still recovering from the storm, and every day brings us closer to normal. We are back in our home after a lengthy hotel stay, and that is the best part!
I had a spreadsheet with all my gratitude ideas, and was writing the paragraphs daily as I posted. SO, here are my gratitudes for the rest of November, in a list. 🙂
#6 Living in this country, and enjoying the freedoms I have.
#7 My oldest son, Logan, who loves to play violin.
#8 My son, Tyler – a budding cellist who wants to learn even more instruments!
#9 My daughter, Sarah – who is SO much like me!
#10 My son, Brandon – Sarah’s twin – and an endless source of energy, till he wears himself out, then randomly just goes to bed!
#11 Dear friends – those that accept me for who I am. 🙂
#12 Scrapbooking – my creative outlet that keeps me sane!
#13 A handy hubby – he’s worth his weight in gold! He’s not afraid to tackle any project.
#14 My sister – I think we are closer friends now as adults than we were as children – and we were close then!
