TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

30 Days Of Gratitude.............Day 3

Today I am especially grateful for the roof above my head.

I had to drop a package off at the post office today and when I did I noticed a woman outside the building.  She was talking to herself and pacing back and forth, carrying a large bag that contained a sleeping bag.

It kind of shocked me.

Because I live in a small, quaint, what some would call an idyllic Texas town.

The woman was clearly homeless.

So today, I was reminded how important it is to be thankful for the roof above my head.

Thank you for my home.  I am truly grateful to have a place to shelter my family and keep us safe. A house that I can tuck my babies into bed every night.  It may not be a mansion but it is a house filled with love.

  1. That always tears me up. I work downtown and the homeless population is so large right now...a far cry from where it was 6 years ago.
