Today. Today I am thankful.
I am thankful that even though I woke up with a headache, that there was coffee.
Today, I am thankful that even though Kaylee is a terror times 12 in her toddlerness, that she is healthy and happy enough to wreak havoc on my peace!
Today I am thankful that even though Mother Nature decided to bless me with her most despised yet reliable monthly "gift," that I have ibuprofen to quiet the storm of cramps that desires to engulf me.

Today, I am thankful I went grocery shopping yesterday!
Today, I am thankful for the sun and the wind - refreshing for a tired soul and warm on closed eyes.
Today, I am thankful for a prayer for peace, a prayer for those that are hurting beyond measure. Today I am thankful that in a world rout with chaos and swarming with evil, I am thankful that my children remain gay, innocent and heartless. For after all -
