This past weekend my parents loaded up King in the car and took him on a one on one adventure to St. George while I stayed home and had some one on one time watching Matt. I had a lot of time to work this past weekend, but also a lot of time to think. As I am working my mind often wanders, most of the time I am bothered and get frustrated as I bring it back to what I should be working on. This weekend though, a few times, I let it drift, and I let it take me where my thoughts needed to be as silly as that is. I let them drift and I am so grateful that I did so I wanted to take a second and share where my mind drifted with you for a second…
First, I will say, that usually when my mind drifts I don’t even let it show me where it wants to take me, but when I did, it was mostly all positive, grateful thoughts that after I let it drift I was so grateful that I did.
The first thing that my mind drifted to was how grateful I am for King. He might be super hard, busy, and love his daddy more than me (that is a story for another day) but, that little boy is the biggest blessing in my life. He had a major meltdown when he was getting ready to leave because my dad put the big tractor in the back of the car, but that boy has some serious determination. I look up to him and his determination, his quickness to forgive, the love he holds inside so much. I am so in love with my little boy that it is crazy. He has taught me more than anyone in my entire life (well, besides Matt). He puts things into perspective for me constantly and reminds me what is truly important. That little boy is the best thing that ever happened to me.
Next, my mind drifted to Zach. What a great husband he is and how I often times don’t give him enough credit. He is constantly doing little things for me that I often end up expecting to help me rather than looking at them, thanking him, and being so grateful. He tells me when I am out of place, and loves me anyways. He works so hard for our little family so I don’t have to. He is always there to support me, love me, and tell me it is going to be okay. He sees the good in everyone and he is the first to volunteer and to serve others. I honestly have no idea where I would be without him. He lets me cry for hours if I need to, let’s me sleep in every weekend and gets up with King, and will do most anything that I ask of him. He is a gem, and I still don’t know how I am so blessed to have him for eternity.
Lastly, my mind went to thinking about Thanksgiving. How grateful I am for the little things in my life like holidays like Thanksgiving. A time to reflect and look at what we are grateful for. A time to put us back in place and perspective. There is nothing better than spending time with family and I am so grateful for holidays like Thanksgiving that allow me to spend that time with them. I am so grateful for so many things in my life and this year I have really been thinking about all the small things that I am grateful for.
