Have you seen the daily "what I'm thankful for" postings on Facebook or Instagram? People are posting what they're thankful for daily, from November 1st through Thanksgiving. I love the idea, so much so that I've decided to post here instead of FB this year. Almost as a therapeutic thing for me. ;) So November 1st.... I'll start with the obvious... I'm so very thankful for my children. They are all different, and they all have changed over the years. Funny how birth order plays a part in personality. My oldest is my only girl, and she's super smart and worries about her grades; I guess she's a little motherly; she enjoys band like I did at her age... We're very similar, which I'm sure is why we butt heads quite a bit, but we're also very different. She's just a neat kid. My middle son is worried about making us happy. He gets upset if something worries me; he is a typical boy who couldn't find his hand in front of his face if you told him to, but he tries hard. Also super smart-- I don't know where these kids get it from! :) He's into sports, and electronics, and again, just a cool kid. My third is a funny boy. He makes everyone laugh. He comes up with the craziest, most over-the-top comments and actions and I truly don't know where HE gets it from... but again, typically a third child thing! Smart boy-- math is his thing like his mom. Scary for me to say, but he'll be the life of the party as a teenager. They all bring me so much joy, and also stress, but they're kids... that's what they do. I can't imagine life without any one of them, and they fit together perfectly as siblings. Thank God for my babies. What are YOU thankful for?
