according to the calendar it has arrived.

but when i look outside all i see is snow.

i am thankful for trader joe's and six dollars worth of spring. i separated the bunch and have them brightening multiple corners of the house. they are slowly opening and sharing their pink blossoms and delicate fragrance.

soon it will be summer and i will be complaining about the heat and my lack of air conditioning. Isn't that how life goes - i need to be thankful for now, for the cold and the snow and the last chances to snuggle with my six-year-old before he turns seven next week!

if you look at the picture above you can see our matching game strewn across the floor. I used to be a real pro at that game. But now he last night i thought i would be real tricky and leave the TV on so he would be distracted during the game.

guess what. he beat me 18 to 4.

i should also be thankful for a kid who is destined to be much smarter than I am.

I know that feeling! Knowing that your kids will surpass you in sooo many areas is, indeed, something for which to give thanks.
