I am reading "1000 gifts" by Ann Voskamp. It is one of the best books I have ever read. It's basically about finding the joy in EVERYTHING by giving thanks to God all the time.

Continuing the thankfulness, I'm thankful for getting a cat at the right time of year - the cold is sending mice into our house for refuge. As long as he won't keep us awake, our kitten is now free to roam the place at night so he can catch the little critters!

We got out for a walk, too. Not a sunny day, but we all wore out winter coats and the boys had mittens, plus I got a 25-cent pair at the thrift store which made my walk back warmer. :) And we all played a $1 train board game when we got back!

I'm thankful for YouTube. ;) The boys love watching not only kids' music videos (Eric Herman is a fave) but also oldies! This morning we started with The Archies' "Sugar Sugar" (since Tim heard a cover recently and requested the song today) and then I picked The Monkees out of the video suggestions at the end. I love Monkees tunes and thanks to YouTube I heard a couple that were new to me! I only played one at a time and the boys kept asking for more. :D

I'm also thankful for a morning at home after a busy start of the week. Even with a cleaning list, I felt like I had more time to relax than usual.
