Day 23

23. I am grateful for a few things today. One is for how I felt my day was extended and am totally amazed at all that I accomplished today. I am so grateful for days like these when I can get in bed without feeling super rushed or that I forgot to do something important.

The second thing that I am grateful for is that even in a grocery store there's grace to be found. Even when it involves twin toddlers, mommy looking on the shelves and not paying attention, and...wait for it... an 18-count carton of eggs. Yep. That's right. Eggs, all over the floor, our cart, dripping down our cans, and on my kids clothes and hands.. thank goodness also for being in the aisle where there were sanitizing hand wipes! The rest of that story along with some photos to come after Thanksgiving.

I get to host tomorrow! Oh and, we've upped our numbers for Thanksgiving. Eleven adults and eight children! Woo hoo! I'll also post pics of our Thanksgiving feast once I wake up from my food coma. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Hey! Your story reminded me of a grocery store incident we had. My daughter (about 18 -20 mos.) was strapped in the buggy all nice and tidy. I got in line to checkout and was fiddling with my coupons and trying to watch older brother (4yrs.) I looked down at my daughter and to my absolute horror, found her with 2 handfuls of RAW cubed steak. Not only was she holding the stuff, she was eating it!!! I felt like the worst mother in the world!! Now today, 16 years later, we laugh our heads off.
