I am thankful

Its not thanksgiving or Christmas or any special holiday of sorts to make me think this morning about the things I am thankful for. Its been a rough go lately I wont lie, and so to make myself not go completely insane every day I have been trying to remember all the great things and be thankful. ( Some lists are better than others, depends on the day!)
Here is my list for today:

I am thankful that although Coy was awake from 3-5:30am...he was not vomiting.
I am thankful that when the twins knocked over my cup of coffee shattering it to a million pieces, it was an empty of coffee that I got to finish.
I am thankful that when I went upstairs to put away laundry and Reed tried to crawl over the gate and follow me, he got stuck in the upside down pants around the ankles position and did not crash head first to the hard tile floor. ( again)
I am thankful that my husband loves me....and gives me all that I need, when I humble myslef and ask for it
I am thankful that when Mia threw up all over me last night, I had covered myself in a towel before I feel asleep.
I am thankful that when I split my jeans again, it was in the knee and not in the a**
I am thankful that my kids love me so much that they cry A LOT to be held and hugged and kissed.
I am thankful that when Mia had explosive diarrhea this morning and I was on the phone, she was able to tell me that the babies were playing in it before they managed to get any in their mouth. ( prompting me to be thankful that we have running water, soap, garbage bags and that I have a stuffed nose)
Lastly for today I am thankful for birth control, because if I had another kid I would be committed.
So in summary, its only noon, and I am so thankful for so many things already that I can just hardly wait for the rest of this miserable day to be over with so I can reflect on all the other things I have to be thankful for.
