Thankful Thursday - Quick 5

This Thursday, I'm thankful for ...

1. Time spent holding a sweet little baby. Our friends Joe and Sam welcomed sweet Isla into the world (almost) two weeks ago. She is absolutely perfect and such a joy to hold. I could hold her all. day. long. Such a sweetie!

2. Books. Before Abby was born, I was an avid reader. There's just something about putting all of your thoughts in the back of your mind and letting yourself go inside a good book. I love it. Since our lives have gotten busier, I've put reading on hold. However, on the flight back from Houston, I bought a book. A really good book. I've made a promise to myself to read a bit each night before bed. I could do it before, why can't I do it now?!

3. Abby's giggle. It is so contagious and puts a smile on my face every time.

4. Max. Poor Max doesn't get attention like he used to, but that dog still curls up with me on the sofa to cuddle. This afternoon I took some extra time to give him some special attention. He's such a good dog. I need to remember that more often and show him that.

5. Talking to my Mama every day. I think I'd be lost if I didn't. :)

Poor Max is right! I'm glad you gave him some extra TLC! Love that ballet boy! And yes- we would be lost without talking to our Mom's each and every day. We are so blessed that our Mom's are our best friends. :) See you tomorrow!!!
