Multitude Monday 75




It has not been a week where gratitude was the easy choice.  It has been a week where complaining, whining, early bedtimes, daily naps, snotty tissues, headaches, and half filled medicine syringes have abound.  I can say through it all I am thankful that Sam and I have continued to email our daily list of thanks to one another.


November 7, 2011

I am thankful:

3118.  that God has revealed my selfishness to me through my son
3119.  that there is a purpose for all things

Sam is thankful:

90.  for grace and blessings from God
91.  for old design standards sitting on his network that give answers to needed questions
92.  to be able to quickly answer questions about concrete loads for his dad

November 8, 2011

I am thankful:

3120.  for my husband
3121.  for the hard work he does, the way he puts his family above others, and the way he is always processing how to be a "better" person in his roles

Sam is thankful:

93.  for my photo hobby, as it documents and leaves memories for our son
94.  for my cheesy tradition building, as it seals in our hearts and the heart of our son the importance of unity of family, of holy days, and of celebration
