30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 6

  • November 6, 2011 5:16 pm

Blessing #6: Hearing and watching my little girl sing

Kira loves to sing. She has quite the repertoire of songs and will always make a strong, and very entertaining, attempt at any new song. She sings every word she can understand and even some she can’t. She sings introductions and backup vocals; she even sings the sound effects of instruments. Watching Kira sing can literally entertain you for hours if you were so inclined.

Her current favorites include “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”, and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

“Look, Momma, I’m dancing!”


“Oh, no! I fell down!”

Blessing #5: Cousins for Kira

Since we are unable to provide Kira with a sibling to play with, we are very blessed to have her 5 cousins very nearby. She gets to socialize and form relationships with them. Two of them are within a year of her same age, so they’ll be great playmates as they grow up together.


30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 4

Blessing #4: Our house

It may not be a mansion, but it’s virtually brand new, plenty big for the three of us (and the kitty), and has no problems (no leaky roof or basement, no broken furnace, not even a drafty window). It’s in a very safe neighborhood. Again, way more than a vast majority of people have, and definitely something we should not take for granted.

Blessing #3: Food

Well, not just food … The ability to buy food not only whenever we need it, but also whenever we want it. A large percentage of the world does not have this luxury, so we definitely consider ourselves incredibly lucky.

So, there is a little thing that everyone seems to be doing, which is to list something you’re thankful for every day for the month of November. I decided to give it a go.

Since I am a day late, I’ll combine days 1 and 2 into one post.

Blessings #1 and #2
