Can I just say...

How grateful I am for today?!?! Everyone got out the door with no conflicts or last minute stress. Went to work and one of the parents brought in a little gift for both of us and the parents in the Al Anon group gave us $20 each as a thank you. After work I found dh's key to my car which has been missing for over a week. Then, I went to our storage facility expecting to find a lock belonging to the owners on it because we haven't paid them in a while. I was able to get the code for the outside door and found our locker with only our lock on it! Our Christmas decorations are in there and I was really afraid we were going to have to come up another $600 before we could get them out. Not sure where that would have come from... We have food in the house to feed us for the rest of the week. My parents took Megan shopping for a Christmas outfit yesterday and she came home with an outfit that she wore to school today (that's the part that makes me grateful for today). I had the rest of a fabulous salad (probably not too diet friendly but that's okay) from California Pizza Kitchen for lunch yummmmmmmm! Time for me to pay it forward and treat the family to a clean house with no nagging. Already started a load of towels so they have clean towels for swim practice tonight. I'm smiling inside and wish I could wave a magic wand and share it with all of you. Wishing you all a day like mine! :)

Isn't it so awesome when everything goes right? I love that you took the time out to express gratitude for it, too! I need to remember to do that more often.

I hope the rest of your week goes just as well !
