Thankful Thursday

In case anyone is unaware of the flurry of recent activity, I’m attempting to get back into the routine of writing here first. It’s an exercise that needs to be done and like returning to the gym after a break things are a little stiff and forced. Time and focus will loosen up the brevity that has been my rule at Lowcountry Blogs.

To encourage myself, there may be a few memes. As cornball as it may sound, I do enjoy Thankful Thursday as it forces me to look beyond the petty irritations.  As an American I am incredibly soft and spoiled.

With absolutely no respect for magnitude, ten things I am thankful for this very moment:

  • Coffee lightened with milk and sprinkled with cinnamon.
  • My two year old who tells people he is “One and one.” He has been listening in on the four year old’s math lesson.
  • adwea.jpgThe basset hound warming my feet.
  • Baby hugs, squeals, coos, and grins.
  • Ivy, Margo, Lori and all the others who listen to me so I don’t drive my husband crazy.
  • My husband.
  • Early mornings when the entire family is asleep.
  • Movies we can watch together that we haven’t seen 52 times.
  • Piglet, my four year old’s imaginary pet who lives a varied and amazing life.
  • Patience. Even if I don’t feel it, I’ve been given at least a handful along the way.

For non-family members this is a 90second example of my four year old’s violin playing. I am proud of his progress, but before you click, be aware that this is a four year old on a very cheap instrument. You have been warned. As far as family goes, you are fully expected to click, endure, and be proud.

That’s awesome!!!! Are you teaching him? I didn’t think you could start music lessons that young – maybe I should start teaching my 4 year old boy piano!

I’m not family, but I’m proud anyway.
