For Mother's Day, my parents took my daughter and I to the circus... WE LOVED IT!  It was so nice and we had such a great time.  I'm thankful that they brought us.

It's a rainy day

on Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Rain, rain, go away, come again another day... Actually, I'm glad it is raining today.  We planted a bunch of flowers and seeds this past weekend and the rain will help them grow.  We have a small veggie garden including tomatoes, radishes, chives and lettuce.  I can't wait to eat the bounty this summer! 

We wanted to go to the playground today but instead we danced in the rain in our own backyard which is just as much fun!

Today, we spent most of the day outside.  We walked, we talked, we went to the playground but it was locked.  We drove to another playground and played.  I am very thankful for the time I have with my two year old.

Letters to God

on Sunday, May 1, 2011

Last night, I watched a movie that has since changed my view on life.  Letters to God is about a little boy with cancer that writes letters to God and through those letters ends up changing the world.  I had abandoned this blog last year but now am interested in reviving it in a totally new direction.  It started out chronically my finances then switched to a personal blog and now it will be a personal blog with a twist. 
The past year has proved very challenging for my family and at times I wasn't sure we'd pull through but we have and for that I am thankful.  The movie reminded me that I have so much to be thankful for.  I often complain about things in which I should be actually giving thanks.  Just this morning in fact even after allowing that movie to change my perspective I grumbled on facebook about having to clean the house but instead I should have posted that I am cleaning the house and while I don't like it I am thankful for having a house to clean.  There are so many out there less fortunate than myself and I often forget that when caught up in my own life and woes.
