They last forever!

By: Design Mom Design Mom Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:38:13 +0000 It’s next on my list! Hopefully I’ll squeeze it in before Christmas.

By: Design Mom Design Mom Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:37:38 +0000 Hah! I feel the same way about this house.

By: Design Mom Design Mom Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:36:50 +0000 They had fun at that class! And they were glad you were there.

By: Design Mom Design Mom Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:36:23 +0000 Oh man. It’s so easy for me to take my body for granted when I’m feeling healthy. But I try hard not too! : )

By: Stella Stella Sat, 24 Nov 2012 03:43:11 +0000 I just read Gone Girl a few weeks ago, and it is really good! I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for my Relief Society book club…. but it was absolutely fascinating. And in a twisted way, deeply moving. I was profoundly more grateful for my own marriage and our commitment to the institution of mariage after reading the novel. Anyway, you should read it. Just maybe hide it so the kids don’t pick it up for a little light reading ;)

By: Margit Margit Thu, 22 Nov 2012 15:04:02 +0000 Ooh, I love this question! It’s been a hard year for me, but I’m still thankful for so many things….

I’m thankful for:
Living in a country where women can still work with their doctors to make the best decisions for their bodies and their families.
Our country choosing a president who cries when he thanks his volunteers over a president who was a bully to shy, long-haired boys in high school.
My parents and their support of us through tough times and losses this year.
The Mother’s Milk Bank of New England, which is transforming a terrible personal loss for me into a way I can help other mothers.
My rabbi, who is just wonderful.
My son, who is even more wonderful.
My husband, who has been a source of wonder and gratitude in my life since 1989.
Olive Us, which makes my little guy happy!
All the wonderful blogs that teach me and make me happy — Design Mom, Oh Happy Day, Shakesville, My Marrekesh, Angry Chicken, Filth Wizardry, Soulemama, Gennine’s Art Blog, I could go on and on!
My friends, who have truly shown me what friendship means this year.
Living in a beautiful place and having all we need.

I’m sure I could go on for weeks and not get to the end of the list, which makes me feel good. No matter how tough things are, there’s always so much to be grateful for and appreciate.

By: Gina Gina Wed, 21 Nov 2012 20:08:36 +0000 First- that is a darling picture. Second, I am thankful that my husband has a job, we have a warm place to live, food to put on the table (when I cook it) and family in general. I do also like how you pointed out being thankful for your body… as a nurse I have seen that not many people recognize that.
