It’s Thursday already? Can you believe Christmas is NEXT SUNDAY? Me neither. The Mister and I have one last activity planned for Bean and I’m giddy just thinking about it
But before I start looking forward to the weekend, I’d like to take just a few minutes to live in the moment and recognize everything that made me smile this week. I hope you’ll join me.
This week, I’m thankful for…
- Dinner with girlfriends
- Rufus Wainwright
- Weekend trips to see old, best friends
- Dunkin’ Donuts – for having the best coffee in the world
- The quality time I’ll have with the Mister tonight (finally!)
- Being DONE with the Christmas shopping (go me!)
- 5th Ave Deli and their Mediterranean Salad + Matzo Ball Soup
- My new Keurig – or should I say the Mister, who bought me a new, UPGRADED Keurig
- My mom and dad, because they are two of my favorite people in this entire world and I cannot tell them enough how much I love their guts
- The three musketeers (me, the Mister + Bean)
Happy Thursday! What are you thankful for this week?
I know I shared some photos yesterday, but I haven’t yet shared my experience from the Flashes of Hope benefit.
Aside from getting to meet and chat with players and folks from the Cleveland Browns and Cavs, my highlight of the evening was playing with the kiddos. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Kaleb, who enthusiastically shared his plans for Halloween (dressing up as some WWE wrestler) and got a big kick out of my makeup. Each one of the kids was thrilled to be up on stage as they danced and posed in the spotlight with confidence and infectious glee. Some of them are still fighting cancer, others are recovering and the lucky ones are celebrating the fight they’ve won. Looking out among their smiling faces, I couldn’t tell the difference. But one thing I know for sure is that they don’t take a single day for granted and celebrating life with them will go down as one of my favorite memories this year — it certainly helped put things in perspective.
So once again, let’s all take a few moments to recognize everything we’re thankful for this week. We deserve it.
This week, I’m thankful for:
A child’s laughter
Vanilla Biscotti coffee
Extra time with my little man
Hugs from the Mister
What are you thankful for this week?
These past two days I’ve spent away from my desk, away from my email and entirely focused on on this little guy.
It certainly helps put things in perspective to see the world through the eyes of a child for a few days. Stopping to play in the raindrops, sitting on the porch to watch the squirrels and laughing for hours with peek-a-boo and foot munching help.
That being said, going back to work this morning was a brutal brush with reality. Good thing tomorrow is Friday.
In the meantime, let’s all look back on the week together and recognize what “made” our weeks.
This week, I’m thankful for…
Uninterrupted time with my tiny man
The Mister’s ability to make every single day that much better with his presence
My new look!
That my BIRTHDAY MONTH is just a few days away (yes, I celebrate allllll month long)
Pumpkin spice coffee
New clothes (and picks from Mama’s closet)
The upcoming weekend
Your turn — what are you thankful for this week?
