Feta Cheese, Alarm Clocks, and Sisters

Today I am thankful for:

1. Feta Cheese. I eat it on everything from salads to burritos. Today I made Cousin Cosmos Greek Chicken (Paleo Style with turkey cutlets), a family favorite stuffed with feta cheese. It was a joy to sit around the table, eat a savory meal, and share our highs and lows with one another. Blessed!

2. Getting up this morning. I wake up at 5:45 to get everyone off to where they need to be. You have to understand that I am not a 5:45 kind of girl … I am a very happy equator girl where the sun comes up at 7:00 am every day of the year!!! I know this because I have lived near the equator. Anyway, when the alarm clock goes off, my initial reaction is “this sucks.” Seriously. Then, I lay in bed for a moment and start remembering my blessings for the day. I get to wake up and have breakfast with my two favorite kids,  a little coffee time with my DSH (dear sweet husband), and spend 40 minutes in the car just hanging out with my kids. The gratitude literally changes “this sucks” to “rise and shine.” Well, not exactly, I am still pretty brain dead, but I am thankful I have something to wake up for. Savor!

3. Sisters. I am blessed to have two beautiful younger sisters who are my best friends. We have been through a lot together, we know each other’s strengths and struggles, and we support one another. We were not always this way. But, we have grown up and worked hard to make our relationships a blessing to one another. I do not know what I would do without my sisters and am grateful that they are a part of my life. Connection!

What are you thankful for today?
