Thankful Thursday: the little things

This week I am especially thankful for the little things.

I am thankful for my dishwasher and I use it frequently.  I hate washing dishes- in the sink that is.  Don't get me wrong, I do it A LOT.  Between highchair trays, baby spoons, sippy cups, knives, pots and pans that don't go in the dishwasher,  I am washing dishes multiple times a day.  So being able to put the plates, cups, and silverware in the dishwasher is a huge relief.  I'm not sure how we generate so many dishes, but we do and I run my dishwasher a lot.  And I love it.

I am thankful for hot showers.  Not that I typically go without them, but I have found myself lingering in the shower recently loving the hot water on my back.  Not sure how the husband is going to feel about the hot water bill, but man it feels so good.

I am thankful for my Yankee candles and Scentsy Warmers.  I love it when my house smells good.  It makes it so much more inviting and it makes me happy.  I love walking up the stairs from the garage and having the scent of the month wafting down as I come in.  Currently we are burning our Yankee Balsam & Cedar and it smells like Christmas!  And although I love the Scentsy warmers, the best wax you can get is the Better Homes & Garden Brand at Walmart...if you were wondering.

I am thankful for my pillow and bed.  I love getting into it at night and hate getting out in the morning.

I know I've said this before and this is more than a "little thing," but I'm really thankful for all our RUF students.  They love us well.  Taylor, one of our girls, took some pictures for us a couple months ago for our Christmas cards.  These aren't the ones we choose, but here are a couple spoilers.

  1. This is such a great list! I love hearing things like this (part of why I do my 1,000 gifts posts).

    I definiely second the dishwasher comment! Although, ours has had a couple of issues not cleaning everything the past few times we've used it, but it's still so much easier than handwashing... I've been the same way with the shower lately. It's just so cold out (I hate the cold) and the warm water feels so good.



Thanks for visiting! Your comments make my day!
