A day like today. . .




A day like today reminds me why I have the most wonderful life ever. . .
A day like today helps me forget yesterday (when I thought I could stay home all day, but in reality missed getting something really important taken care of - ugh). . .
A day like today makes me wonder why I get so discouraged. . .
A day like today makes all of my complaining seem so ridiculous. . .

Because today?

The Coach slept in.
Chai Tea in the morning.
The sun is shining.
The kids are playing with cousins.
Calls from good friends.
The laundry is caught up.
The house is *somewhat* clean.
My aunt came for a visit.
Beautiful hand-me-downs for the girls from a friend.
The Coach's little sis stopped by.
Cookies are baking (and being eaten as quickly as they come out!).
The Coach is coming home early. Woo hoo!
No football tonight (and they won last night!).
And best of all, everyone is WELL at this particular moment in time (although this fact is subject to change and probably will at any moment).


And did I mention the sun is shining?

(sigh)

All on a day like today. . .

Beautiful pictures. I'm assuming this is your fabulous yard! What a great post. THanks for reminding me to be thankful today.

Jo - our front yard. I haven't planted anything all year (except for a few pansies in pots) - but those mums came up and have brought me so much joy! I actually sent Son #1 out with the camera and told him to take some pictures of something pretty for my blog, today. I think he did well!
