Thank you Thank you Thank you.

I feel like I have been walking around for the past few days just saying "Thank you God" over and over and over again. Things I am thankful for:

*Watching my kids run through the back yard laughing so hard as they play catch with Molly.
*The beautiful paint job my husband did on our bedrooms.
*The bag of oranges left on our front doorstep from our neighbors.
*The "neighborhood swings" in a neighbor's front yard.
*Friends that helped us with the move.
*Parents that helped us with the move and with our kids.
*My stove that belongs in a fancy gourmet restaurant
*The girls' playhouse in the backyard that is big enough to be a bedroom.
*The girls sharing a bedroom that is twice the size of their old individual rooms.
*Lexi is completely potty trained. (The new house brought so many blessings!)
*Spending the day with a precious friend that made hours felt like minutes.
*Having enough space to invite other mommy friends over for a morning breakfast/playdate tomorrow.
*Having a playroom.
*New washer/dryer that make laundry fun. (It probably helps that my washer sounds like a slot machine.)
*Being able to decorate with special nick-nacks that have been in storage for over a year.
*Having my favorite cozy chair back (that was living at my in-laws for a year.)
*My kids sleeping so well in the same room together (Lexi even moved to a big girl bed and doesn't get out!)
*Feeling the ocean breeze come in through my sliding glass bedroom windows bringing with it the smell of sweet jasmine flowers.
*Planting flowers/veggies/plants with my dad this week...and future gardening with the kids.
*A Garage...which means never looking for a parking space again.

I just feel at peace. And it feels so good. I am thankful. I am blessed.
