This post is in no way affiliated with Thanksgiving. I've just been feeling particularly thankful today, which is a big deal for a pessimist like me, so I thought I would share (and record for posterity).

Today, I am thankful for . . .

  • a hot water heater capable of providing two hot showers at the same time
  • new tires on my car (finally the steering wheel doesn't pull to the left!)
  • The Birth Center: the care, the warmth, the attitude
  • my favorite midwife, and having my appointment scheduled with her on the day I started freaking out about going through labor again
  • a fan.tas.tic son, who played happily during my appointment, charmed everyone he met, and didn't fuss once, even when mommy had to get an internal exam (that's huge progress)
  • a perfectly-sized, head-down little boy #2
  • Costco. a full fridge and pantry for $85? Lunch and a drink for $1.50? Yes, please.
  • church family showing up at Costco just when I was wondering if my lightheaded self could push that giant cart one. more. step (nevermind how in the world a 42 lb. bag of cat litter was going to get into my car)
  • $5 rotisserie chickens. dinner? done.
  • my birthday tomorrow, my first full day "off" (except for sickness) since becoming a mom-- oh, and a pedicure (thanks mom and dad!)
I started the day just being thankful for a hot shower (I don't know about you, but at the end of my pregnancies, showers start to feel amazing), and things just kind of snowballed. Was it one of those days when everything goes right? Or did it just feel that way because I was looking for things to be thankful for? I don't know, and I'm not sure I care. It's been a lovely day, no matter what the reason.

What are you thankful for?
