Quiz: which element does AG represent?
Okay, enough of that. (but a quick shout out of thanks to Mr. Smith for helping me when it came to the pesky Periodic Table. You were an awesome teacher)
Day #2 of AG. Have you done any thinking about what you are grateful for? Have you? Besides the usual “family, home, cars, jobs, health, education, friends . . .” have you seriously thought about it? It’s hard. Here are my picks for today:
I am grateful for books. I have a list of places that I would like to visit, but they are all in the ‘someday’ category and there are just times that I need to get away now! Books help me do that. I can choose to be whomever I want to be, go wherever I want to go, and be in any situation I want to be in. Right now I am Sadie and Carter Kane in the YA book The Red Pyramid. I love Rick Riordan. Oh, another reason why I love books is because I can learn anything that I want to learn. Sweet! And have you noticed how many places you can get a book? Buy it at a bookstore, check it out from the library, borrow from a friend, Kindle, Nook, so many ways to read. Love. It. Join me on www.goodreads.com and we can talk books.
I am grateful for gas. Be quiet. Fuel. Geez. I live in my car, bus,suburban, so having a full tank of gas is warmth to my heart. I don’t have time to go fill it up so my husband is always good to leave me with enough to get me where I need to go. Gas fireplace warms my body, which seems to be freezing more often lately. Brrrr. Gas stove cooks me my comfort food that warms my belly. Side-note: convection oven lets me bake 3 cakes at the same time for Cake Pops which warms my soul. (try them, trust me) Go Gas!
And last, for today, I am grateful for my mommy gut. Again, not what it sounds like. Not the gut I got by becoming a mommy to five wonderful kids, oh no, that will be gone – – – someday. The 6th sense that I have when it comes to my children. It has come in quite handy often in raising these future world leaders I have in my home. Thank you mommy gut!
