I am going to take a break in my catch up posts (I am still a month behind) and share my current feelings. This week has been a wonderful week and tonight I was filled a strong feeling of gratitude and I want to remember this moment because I so quickly forget all the blessings in my life.
I am thankful for 7 happy years with Boyd. We celebrated our anniversary this week. Boyd was traveling on our actual day, so we really didn't get to celebrate and we really didn't expect to this week. Then as a nice surprise we were able to get away one night this week after Boyd returned. It was especially fun because I surprised Boyd.
I am thankful for thoughtful friends.. This week 2 of my friends cleaned my room for me. That's right, cleaned my horrible messy room while I was away. I came home expecting to spend my day cleaning it, and it was clean. I felt like I was in a dream!
I am thankful for my sweet boys. Tonight we had a mommy and sons party. We had a picnic in our living room, we watched a show, and we made, decorated, and ate sugar cookies! As I sang songs to them tonight, I was filled with so much joy that they are in my life.
I am thankful that I get to live in New York. There are so many fun things going on this summer. I got to attend Shakespeare in the Park (amazing free theater in central park, ) again this week. The first time, I was lucky enough to get tickets to Merchant of Venice, starring Al Pacino, from some friends after we just missed getting some. This week I got to attend with Sherilyn after she camped out with some friends to get tickets to A Winter's Tale. It was so beautifully done.. Earlier this summer, Sherilyn and I attended the NY Philharmonic free concert in Central Park. It was such an incredible concert, it was free, and we got to enjoy it under the stars surrounded by friends.
I am thankful for summer days with friends. It has been so horribly hot in New York this summer. It has been the hottest July in the history books. So, I am grateful for the beach escape we had on Monday and I am grateful for them public pool that we discovered that we love that is only one block away and is perfect for the kids. We had a lot of fun there this week with friends. The boys are so happy. Gavin is doing swim lessons and both Eli and Gav are taking soccer classes..
I am thankful for Sherilyn, who has made my life so much easier. She has been very helpful and she is so good with the boys. I am grateful that we are getting to know each other better.
I am thankful that I know that I can be a better person. I often reflect too much on my faults, but today, I feel grateful for the person that I am, but know that with God's help and with hard work, I can be better.
