Gratitude Gems: A Whole List of Things

Welcome to Gratitude Gems, where I show a little appreciation for the good things in my life!

Here I’ve missed two Mondays in a row, and that’s just unacceptable.  It’s not that I haven’t been grateful, but I’ve just been too busy and/or lazy to make note of it here!  So in classic catch-up style, here is a plethora of things for which I’ve been grateful lately:

  1. I get to work from home today!
  2. My hubby turned up the water heater so now I can have almost endless hot showers!
  3. Yesterday was Family Day, which means I got to spend a few hours with my immediate family and my Aunts and Uncles and cousins eating hot dogs and catching up!
  4. I got to be lazy in sweats and a t-shirt when I went for dinner at a friend’s house!
  5. I finished a Christmas cross stitch that I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time!
  6. I have Donut Faeries – I had an intense craving last week and two amazing friends saw to it that my craving was satiated!
  7. My mom and sister-in-law and mother-in-law are all planning a baby shower for me!
  8. So many Harlowe cuddles!!
  9. My hubby vacuumed out and washed the floor mats in the car, so it’s practically sparkling inside now!
  10. If it wasn’t for plain black tea and/or Coke, I don’t know how I’d stay awake most days!
  11. Endless desserts – leftover donuts and cinnamon buns and chocolate zucchini cake, oh my!
  12. Having a steering wheel with an adjustable height means I can still drive comfortably!
  13. We’re having lovely warm weather for February!
  14. I have free reign over nursery design decisions!
  15. I love having a dog that gets along well with almost any other dog, both ones we know and random ones at the park!
  16. I still had a floater stat to use up, which meant I took an unexpected day off last week!
  17. Valentine’s Day with my hubby was awesome this year; it consisted of chocolate, Deadpool, the dog park, Breakout, and DeLux Burger Barunicorn ice cream
  18. My midwife provides constant support and makes me believe in my body’s ability to do what it was made to do!
  19. I happened to find a random recipe online last week, tweaked it a bit to our tastes, and ended up making a hit casserole!
  20. We just received a used but like-new infant car seat from family that still meets safety regulations, so that’s yet another baby item we don’t need to buy!
  21. Netflix has some awesome original programming (e.g. Daredevil and Jessica Jones) that is perfect for binge-watching when I’m done moving for the day!
  22. A highlight of my weekend was watching my adorable niece Laurel jump and crawl and roar like a lion!

Sometimes it’s too hard to pick just one thing to be grateful for… it really is all of the little things that make all the difference!
