Mondays are rough. Mondays after vacay are rougher. Having to be at work for an 8 am staff meeting on Mondays after vacay is uber-rough.
Leaving my baby this morning was rough. Missing her all day was rougher. Coming home to all I missed was uber-rough.
So instead of focusing on the Monday-ness of today, I am going to choose to be thankful.
I am thankful for my husband and his mad caveman-like fire-making skills.
I am thankful for co-workers who clean out stinky fridges for the rest of us.
I am thankful for my mama's chili recipe that warms the soul in the bone chillin' weather.
I am thankful for the open arms of a God full of grace.
I am thankful for Monkeys and playdoh.
I am thankful for a good job with good people.
I am thankful for new hope in a new year.
I am thankful for a sister who is a friend.
I am thankful for reduced-fat JIF peanut butter and whipped cream cheese... and my thighs are thankful too.
I am thankful for the Neti Pot.
I am thankful for authors who I admire (John Fisher, Lou Tice, Max Armstrong, etc.)

I am thankful for my Grandma.
