15 REASONS…

Every year I attempt to make a list of 15 things in life that I am thankful for – this year I challenge you to do the same… 

  1. Sunday mornings with my little family. Sunday mornings are always a relaxing morning in our home. Oliver wakes up with us usually around 7:30am. My husband starts the coffee and I get Oliver ready to start the day. Once coffee is made and the dogs and cats are fed, we hang out on the couch and watch an episode of Scooby-Doo followed by some baby playtime. Oliver has been finding increased enjoyment in his toys lately; it is always exciting to see what his favourite toy of the day is. 
  2. My wonderful husband…I have been blessed with the ultimate teammate.
  3. Family. No matter what family will always be there.
  4. Motherhood is a gift. I have been blessed with the ability to grow and give birth to a happy, healthy little human; now I have the never-ending task of raising him. Yes, never ending… motherhood is a lifelong position – My boss can be moody some days but you can’t stay mad at that chubby little face! 
  5. Canada is a wonderful place to live; clean water, fresh airnot to mention some of the most breathtaking scenery at our finger tips. We are privlaged enough to live only a few hours drive from the majestic Rocky Mountains! – “from coast to coast and in between there is so much beauty to be seen…”  We have free healthcare and relativly low crime, and best of all, the people. Canadians are known for being the nice guys at the table and most of us are!… Pretty great eh?…
  6. Our dogs have been a wonderful joy in our lives daily ever since the day they joined our family. Their energy is uplifting and entertaining on the darkest of days. Not only is it amazing to have a furry companion at an arms reach all the time it’s also reassuring.
  7. My tooth-brushI know odd… but I love the feeling of clean fresh teeth… 
  8. Clean sheets – who doesn’t enjoy diving into a freshly washed set of sheets – YOU SLEEP LIKE A CLUCKING BABY…
  9. Large item pickup – this is one day a year when you can put out a large item (within your cities guideline) that you would like to get rid of and it is picked up free of charge from your driveway… ITS LIKE CHRISTMAS!!!! 
  10. Wine… if it were not for that wonderful nectar I would have murdered someone by now… 
  11. Mr. Clean erasers those things clean my walls like “MAGIC”… that bald man has cleaned his way into my home and heart… sigh… 
  12. Robot vacuums have been my lifesaver since having Oliver – I have one downstairs and one upstairs. they vacuum my house daily and still can’t keep up with all the fur from the animals; but they keep it at a somewhat controlled level. 
  13. Insta-pot making suppers in 45 minutes or less is a big win for our household. healthy, efficient and delicious… 
  14. Mommy memes that keep me awake and giggling during night-time feeds… 
  15. My followers – thank you for joining me weekly!!! 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Cheers.
