[1] I’m thankful for 2nd (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th chances)! As many as it takes to get it right!

[2] I’m thankful for the gift of being able to bend over and tie my shoe without back pain, to be able to walk 2 steps never mind the 2 miles I’ve been walking with my sister each morning, and the ability to run — even for a block and despite my advancing years — without keeling over. LOL!

[3] I’m thankful that my daughter has embraced a love for nature, animals, flowers and the outdoors. It’s something that I know will bring her peace throughout her life (because it does me). And, it’s something we will always be able to share.

[4] I’m thankful to have enough surplus in my life to be able to throw a little party for the boys’ birthday with good friends and loving family in attendance.

[5] I’m thankful I have a loving and non-critical husband.

But, mostly, right now, I’m thankful that I’m done posting so I can go to bed. 5:30AM comes quickly!


About Maggie

I'm a stay-at-home mother of 3 children including a 15-year-old daughter, the Old Soul, and 11-year-old identical twin boys who've been blessed with an extra 21st chromosome (aka: Down Syndrome). I happily spend my time doing all that I can do -- breaking the proverbial box wide open -- to foster my children's development and then sharing what I learn with you through this blog.
