I don't know if it's just a 7 year-old thing, but Kennedy sure complains a lot. I'm tempted to just take everything she owns and dump it off a cliff. Instead, lately, in order to (hopefully) mitigate the negativity, each time I hear her complain, I tell her she needs to tell me 5 things she is happy about. Sometimes it takes a bit of cajoling, but eventually she is able to come up with those five things. After she's listed them off, she's usually completely forgotten about her initial complaint. Success! ... And then 5 minutes later she finds something else to complain about. ... *sigh. It's a good thing she's usually a sweetheart.
Anyway, since it's Thanksgiving month, I decided I should focus a bit more on those things that make me happy. Each day (or almost each day) am going to list the things I am grateful for, here on my blog. I can't promise that I will blog every day, but I will at least try.
Yesterday I was thankful for my brother and his wife. We stayed up until almost 2:00 a.m. on Monday night, just talking and being silly. I love them both so much- and I can't wait to spend an entire week with them next week :)
Today I am grateful for the sunshine! It was rather cold, rainy and snowy, yesterday- and today the sun is shining happily. And I LOVE it.
Today I am also grateful for Boston Cream Pie flavored Yoplait yogurt. It sure hits the spot for an after-breakfast snack.
What are YOU thankful for?
