Today I am thankful:
~That I got a long time to myself before Simon finally woke at 9. (He was overtired from an outing and missed nap yesterday.)
~For tea and muffins with friends.
~That of all the snacks my child could beg me for in the store, he wanted an apple. I was happy to say yes.
~For extra patience to deal with the “terrible” twos and all of the accompanying whining.
~For an easy supper planned for tonight, and the fact that my child absolutely devours green beans.
~For afternoon decaf coffee to help me warm up.
~For thick, warm, sweater tights.
~For the way my excited child makes dull tasks like getting an oil change seem fun.
~For the gorgeous October display of leaves.
