Right Here, Right Now

Grateful…

for Caden-7yr killing a monster-sized spider in the laundry room today

for a client of Mike’s, who I’ve never met, insisting on making me vegan spaghetti last week

for vegan spaghetti actually tasting amazing. (Would NOT have guessed that. It had tofu in it, and it STILL tasted amazing.)

for Mike coming home and dealing with a neighbor issue I didn’t want to confront personally but was probably going to have to if he didn’t. But he did.

for Ethan-11yr, who likes to curl up with me on a couch with a blanket and watch educational animal shows until I can’t stand it anymore.

for Seth-5yr, who got SO excited that he jumped up and down when I made corn dogs and salad for lunch.

for my mother, who will brainstorm any problem at any time.

for Seth-5yr, who last night wanted Caden-7yr to spell the word “cat-hairily.” He used it in a sentence to demonstrate context: “he did that VERY cat-hairily.”

for Caden-7yr, who was patient with this request as he explained how that was not a word, even though it had been used in a sentence, and he would not spell it. Repeatedly.

for my mother, who never seems to mind when i call and say, “Hey…. can you help me? Mike’s out of town and 2 kids have practices at the same time at different places…”

for Ethan-11yr, who said, “What is that sound? I hear money. Is dad home?” And didn’t think that was a weird thing to say at all.

for Mike, who brought me sushi home after his radio show today when it was SUCH a sushi emergency.

for all of you, who are a source of much friendship, amusement, wisdom, and  kindness in my life.

Hi! I’m coming over from Glass-Eyed Grady’s blog who had the quirkiest, so-very-true gratitude list I’ve seen. She credits you for the idea so here I am. And I must say, yours is just as honest and witty. I’m grateful that I got a chance to read it!

A hubby who brings you just the food you need when you need it – there is nothing more romantic than that!
