There is no doubt that my family has been through some ish the past few months. From moving away from our friends and family to our baby’s seizure to this miscarriage, we’ve been bracing ourselves for the next wave to hit.
But, even still, there are new mercies each day. And it would do my spirit well to acknowledge these gifts of grace publicly so that I’m held accountable by the internet to not be a total buzz kill all the time. Because no one likes that, right?
So each day during the month of November, I’m going to blog about at least one thing I’m grateful for. Let’s be real — as a work-from-home mom it’s always challenge to find time to blog at least once a WEEK let alone once a DAY, so some of my posts will be kinda short and sweet. But it’s really important to make a point to be grateful each day for one month to turn my stinkin’ thinkin’ back into the rainbows and unicorns I’m used to.
Today’s is easy; last night, I got a package in the mail from my friends in Tallahassee. Check out the contents of this bad boy:
In case you can’t really see in the picture, here are some highlights:
- Guatemalan coffee beans!
- Nail polish.
- Dr. Pepper flavored Lip Smackers.
- A homemade loaf of bread. (Which is delicious as is but when slathered in butter is ZOMG-worthy.)
- Mustache duct tape.
- A naked lady light switch cover.
- A 1Direction notebook.
- Tons of origami cranes made out of book pages.
I seriously have the best friends. Such an awesome blessing to come across. Thanks guys!
