Thankful Tuesday!

It's thankful Tuesday and I'm thankful for...
* a wonderful day with my boys -- more to come on our adventures!!
* the wonderful brownies I am consuming while I'm making Jalen a crayon "J" to hang up -- more to come on that, as well!
* my wonderful sisters who will be watching Jalen tomorrow while I do my practicum hours!
* getting over my cold and Jalen not getting sick (knock on wood)
* my Mom & my Dad
* my healthy, happy life!

It's the sweet simple things in life that are the real ones after all...

I'm a Big Kid Now!

Well, tonight I made one of the saddest transactions, yet. I paid the deposit for Jalen's preschool for this upcoming school year. I got over my fears of sending him and knew that he needed to be around other kids and adults. They never said parents couldn't sit in the parking lot all day until they got out, atleast for the first day. What if he needed me and I was a couple miles away? I actually thought his class was full - until I realized it was the 2 year old class I was looking at, not the three year old! Growing up too fast!!! So, Jalen will be going to "Jalen's school" when Mommy has to go to school. He will just be going Tuesdays and Thursdays! He'll love it.

Today is the day of love. Take the time to tell your family members and friends you love them. Life is sweet, but unfortunately, short. Don't take anything for granted. Don't waste time being mad over something silly. Kiss your kids. Cherish the memories and look forward to the future, but don't forget about the present. Be thankful. Remember the good with the bad. Thank God for everything you have. Most of all, live your life to the fullest.

I love you all...

Happy Valentine's Day

Thankful Tuesday

Each Tuesday I will say things I am thankful for, though I am thankful for them every day!

I am thankful for...
* a healthy little 2 year old boy who's smile can melt your heart and who's laugh can make you cry.
* a wonderful boyfriend who sticks around through thick and thin - and even when I'm in my 'one of those day' kind of moods where I'm sure he wants to just strangle me!
* a family who loves me and is always there for me.
* my brand-new nephew who is already weighing in on my heart and my wallet.. He is just too cute, especially when he does his one eyed move. He'll open his eye (yes, just one) to see who is holding and watching him, smile, and go back to sleep.
* my job in this crazy economy, even if my hours did get cut.
* a house over my head with my Mom right across the hall from me.
* my friends that I can hang out with once a month, but it seems like just yesterday we hung out all day.
* my other family - Nick's family members are just like my own family members. Would do anything and everything I could for them and I know they'd do the same.

I am truly blessed!

What are you thankful for..?
