Cultivating a Life of Gratitude

I am committing myself, during 2010, to attempt to cultivate a greater awareness of how much I have to be thankful and grateful for by sharing my daily findings and musings with you. It is my hope that by blogging about gratitude, I will be more aware of what is going on around me in my life, my family, my friends' lives and our world.

I survived!

I am thankful I continue to make it through long days.

Here is what I mean ... during the school year I teach piano three days out of the week.  This means I say goodbye to E-man from about 2:30 or 3 until anywhere from 7-9 at night.  So, during the school year I get just enough of a break for him that most days fly by and I never feel like 'shew - that was a LONG day with my child'.  (Don't get me wrong, I love being home with him but I also really look forward to doing something else and having a break for a few hours.)

During the summer, I teach one maybe two days and for not as much time.  This week I only taught one day for about 3 hours so I have seen a LOT of E-man and he has seen a LOT of me.  :) On top of that, Ross is speaking at Bethel's Basketball Camp which puts him home around 7:15/7:30 Mon-Thursday this week and next week and that REALLY extends my patience factor.  :) So I'm thankful we survived each other today and I'm thankful Ross is home!!

(REALLY though ... isn't he great!?  This is a cowboy shirt Beans bought for him and he wanted to try it on - he was already wearing his penguin boots so yes - this is quite the outfit :))
