Thankful Thursday

I am such a grouch lately, and am feeling really bad about it, so I decided I need to change my outlook and have an attitude of gratitude and do a thankful thursday post. So 10 things I am thankful for today-
1- I am thankful that James is taking a nap
2-I am thankful Ty is feeling a little better
3- I am thankful Ben is growing and is healthy
4-I am thankful for the sunshine-(even though it burns my sleep deprived red eyes!)And I am thankful for air conditioning that makes the intense sunshine bearable.
5-I am thankful for my sweet visiting teacher who called just to say she loves me-(I am adopting her as my grandma as my grandmas have both passed on)(She is the most adorable lady ever!)(The world would be a much better place if everyone had a Glenna in their lives.)
6-I am thankful that Daniel helped me fold and hang up the monsterous pile of laundry yesterday.
7-I am thankful for color. How depressing would life be without color to brighten things up.
8-I am thankful for my parents. Talking to them makes me happy.And along those lines-I am thankful for my siblings, their spouses and their children.
9-I am thankful for my kids. Even though they drive me bonkers from time to time, I just love them like crazy!
10-I am thankful to have Daniel in my life. I am thankful he still loves me even though I am a grouch. I am thankful that he works hard to provide for us so that i can be at home taking care of our kids. I am thankful for his hugs at the end of the day. I am especially thankful for his friendship.
11-I am thankful for my testimony. I am extremely thankful for my Savior.( I know I said 10 things- but this one is the one I am most thankful for!)
Gee I fell a little less grouchy now! Amazing what a little gratitude can do.

Don't feel too bad about the grouchiness. It's hard to be a mom when you're completely sleep deprived. I know exactly how you're feeling right now, so just know that you're not alone.
