To Miracles

Tonight, the last night of November, I am ready to spill out all my thankful thoughts from the past month.  Overflow with gratitude.  Explode in appreciation.  Acknowlegde how many miracles exist all around.  Today was full of some that I took note of in particular.

Somehow, by some miracle {see!}, Ollie finally took a nap in his bed with the door closed, Emmy slept at the same time in her crib, and Lily was content to play a game on the tap-tap for EXACTLY the amount of time I needed to do one short Ashtanga yoga video.  28 minutes to be exact.  That’s a pretty long time for a miracle to continue…

I got to set up plans with not one but FOUR friends to meet up when I am back in Birdsboro next week.  It seems that with the group of three I will see we can hardly ever find a night that works for all of us.  We have years of lengthy email threads going back and forth, desperately trying to line all our schedules up.  This happened even before the children came along.  By some MIRACLE, our schedules ALL allowed us to get together after school on Thursday.  Who’s grateful?  I am, I am!

Another miracle is I came downstairs after we all got ready this morning and I had 3 different texts waiting from 3 different favorite people in my life.  I felt so popular!

Miracle here:  just when I was looking for a little bit of extra time to pack for the drive, Lissa’s schedule allowed for a quick day trip to play on Monday!

I made yummy peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread, a delicious dinner, decorated snowflakes, cleaned a bathroom all before 3 in the afternoon.

Everyone here is safe, snug, and silent {mostly} by 8:30…miraculous!
