30 Days of Thankfulness - Days 19-21

I am thankful for a little boy that has taught me more about myself in the last 5 years than I had learned in my entire lifetime.  It's amazing how children can bring out both the best and the worst in you.  I'm trying to learn to focus on the good and not beat myself up so bad.  It's a daily struggle.

I am thankful for the inquisitive nature of children.  Although it drives me up the wall sometimes, when I'm not being bombarded with incessant questions, I can better appreciate how eager they are to learn.  They're just little sponges trying to soak up as much as they can.  The above picture, for example, was taken by my curious budding photographer.  He loves getting to handle the "big" camera and with a little guidance, he's actually not too bad - dare I say he's better than his dad?!  

I am thankful for city garbage removal.  It may sound silly but just think about having to dispose of your own garbage and I think you'll quickly agree that this is a service you couldn't live without.  It's just like magic to me that we fill it up and Mr. Man comes and carries it off.  Now if we could just come up with a way to not keep piling it in landfills, we'd be in business.  



  1. Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving, Danielle!

  2. I'm pretty impressed with his picture! A keeper for sure.

  3. The little guy is definitely a photographer in the making! Hope you and your family have a great Thanksgiving, Danielle!

  4. I love watching curious kids too! It's so fun watching Greta try to figure things out and I'm sure it gets even more fun as they get older.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
