Day 15- Attitude of Gratitude

11.15.10-
  Sorry today's post is a little late {Okay, is there really anyone out there that is reading this?} But I had to think back on the day to find my 3 grateful things for the day.

1- Good Neighbors {friends}- I had one of my cute neighbors knock on my back door this afternoon{aren't back door neighbors the best?!}  with some homemade hummus & carrot sticks. Which was the perfect after school snack for the girls!  I also had 2 other neighbors come & visit me today & they brought me a little gift too. 
-I don't know what I did to deserve such kind, thoughtful friends & neighbors to be around everyday!-
{I'm so lucky!!}

2- My health & strength- I'm grateful that I can exercise, hug my kids each day, take care of myself & just do the normal every day things without any problems.  The body really is an amazing thing when you stop & think about it.  I'm grateful for my heart, my mind, my eyes, 10 fingers, 10 toes, ears to hear- our bodies are just incredible things!

 3- Daughters
I just love these 3 girls!  I love having these pictures of the 3 of them that shows off their different personalities.
They make me laugh, cry, feel frustrated at times, overjoyed, happy, tired, sad & most of all grateful.  I I'm glad I get to be their Mom & celebrate life with them.  They truly are a joy in my life!!
