Today I am thankful for:
1. Oven Baked Turkey Strips. Because of diet restrictions, I have not eaten chicken in over two years. I guess that makes me counter cultural in a silly way. Anyway, I love chicken strips and this Paleo version of fried chicken strips had me licking my fingers. I ate some cold left overs today and just closed my eyes. Mmmmmm. The only adjustments were to omit the cayenne pepper and pour over some Franks Buffalo Sauce before putting them in the oven.
2. Apples. I bit into the sweetest tasting apple today. It was one of those moments that you pause and say, “is this really an apple?” Yummo! I feel thankful for God’s endless creativity and the ways He blesses me all through the day with little surprising gifts. Savor.
3. I am thankful to be a mom. It is a challenging job, at times, but the most rewarding job I have ever had. I am honored to share in moments of struggle with my children and walk alongside. I am amazed at the resilience and tenacity they display as they overcome challenges. I am thankful for laughter and silliness that gives life a lift! I love my head banging sessions with my son as we drive to school listening to amazing drummers in his (and my) favorite bands. Celebrate!
What are you thankful for today?
