If you are interested in participating in the Letters from Momma Sunday 5 Linky; write a blog post with 5 things you are grateful for this week, grab the button code and copy it into your HTML for that post, and then submit your link at the bottom of this post so that others can go read what you wrote! I know that there are a lot of blog/facebook "thankful" themed posts going on right now, but Letters from Momma has been posting Sunday 5 - Gratitude posts for at least a month now, and will continue past the holiday season. I'd love to see this linky grow blog-hop style! This linky is a way to have a personal post for your readers, but also generate some traffic to your blog!

I look forward to reading all your gratitude posts! I promise if you link up here, I'll visit your post and share some comment love.

This week I am thankful for the following:

God. I don't know how else we'd all be here? We're Catholic over here, and blessed in the life He has given us. Whatever your faith may be, this is the day that the Lord has made...let us be glad and rejoice!

My husband. Yes, he's on the list again! ;-) He puts up with a lot of whining from me, especially when I'm sick! He inspires me with his patience and even temper. He is the perfect match for me. He takes on duties with out me asking. He earnestly wants me to be happy. He doesn't complain. He kisses me even when I'm sick. I.love.him <3
he's a great daddy
Our resourcefulness. We may not have everything we want, and sometimes we scrape by in a pinch. We're not super well off, but we certainly live a really nice life. G is happy and generally healthy, and so are we. She's happy banging on an empty coffee canister!

Hand-me downs and gifts. Most of G's clothes and toys are hand-me downs or gifts. Just last weekend we got a HUGE bag full of 12-18 month clothes from a co-worker of my husband. I did give her some money, but it was a total steal! I'm really grateful for all of our family and friends who have given G toys, books, and clothes.
98% of that was not bought by us

Fitness Pilates at our gym. It is the perfect workout, gets your heart rate up and tones your core. The instructor is what makes the class though (because guest instructors are too "easy")--she is like a milder-pilates version of Jillian Michaels. I have a private reformer session with her later this week (free!), so I am really looking forward to that. I did reformer pilates in college and it's so amazing. In our new town it's really expensive, but at my college rec center it was only $50 extra for the whole semester (and that included any other group workout class, too). Man, I miss that place!
