grat & thanks

I’m thankful that my family and I got a chance to enjoy Spring Break πŸ™‚ I definitely needed a break from homeschooling.

I’m thankful for all of Curly Nikki’s #levelup posts about creating the life you want and living in the present moment. They have been very helpful to me as I try to stop thinking about the what if’s and just enjoy my life as it is in the present moment. I’m most thankful for the post titled How Being Present Β in the Moment Creates the Future you WantΒ  (it’s my favorite πŸ™‚ ).

I’m thankful for this quote. I read it a few weeks ago in a book and I saw it again on Instagram when SoDreWrites posted it.

Note to self: Everything’s gonna be just fine? Happy Good Friday evening, everyone!

I’m also thankful that when I tagged Curly Nikki on an Instagram to comment on the above post to tell Dre that Curly Nikki had some really great posts about being in the present moment. This happened ↓↓↓, Curly Nikki liked four of my Instagram photos. Curly Nikki is a blogger that I’ve admired for a long time, so I have a fan girl moment πŸ™‚


I’m thankful for learning opportunities. I’m changing my blog host from Bluehost to Siteground and I’ve learned how to download a cPanel backup and transfer it using an FTP client. I don’t know how to do a lot of technical things on my blog, so it was nice to learn how to do some of the things I’ve had to do to transfer my hosting.

I’m thankful for Dr. Wayne Dyer podcasts.

I’m thankful that I’m getting back into exercising daily. I got off track at the end of February with exercising almost every day and I’m just now getting back on track.

I’m thankful that I have happy kids who find pleasure in the smallest things.

I’m thankful that my kids have enjoyed learning about Easter.

How to Teach Kids About Easter

I’m thankful that we are going to dye eggs, make some chocolates using some Easter themed molds, and also make some cupcakes for Easter today.

I’m thankful that tomorrow we get to celebrate Easter and that Jesus died on the cross for me πŸ™‚

I’m thankful that the world is full of good people.

What are you thankful for this week?

    That meme from SoDreWrites was amazing! Totally made me think.
    I’m thankful this week that my baby nephew is doing so well in the NICU and will have a lifetime of love at home. He already has it there.

      I loved that meme too. I made perfect sense to me. I hope your nephew is getting closer to coming home πŸ™‚

    The tech talk had me so confused, I wish I knew more about the other side of blogging. Kudos to you!
    I loved that quote SoDreWrites shared! I commented, “I’m futuristic” because let’s be honest I’m an anxious Nelly.
    I hope you and your family had a lovely Easter.

      I thought I understood it all, but I only transferred one blog instead of two πŸ™ I haven’t blogged this week because I kept forgetting to work on transferring this blog. I think I have it all figured out now though πŸ™‚
