Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful a renewed sense of motivation.  As of late, I was feeling like I was stuck in a rut.  It seemed like everywhere I turned there were constant reminders of things I hadn't done or have yet to accomplish.  So, I did what I always do-prayed.

And I feel so much better.  I've brushed off the dust and my eye is refocused on the prize.  I'm thankful also that earlier this week my husband admitted that he noticed I've been in less than stellar moods for the past few weeks and he took the time to tell me how much he appreciates everything I do around the house and with our two kids.  All I can say is that it felt good to hear that I was appreciated because there are times when I don't feel like anybody cares.

I'm thankful that my husband works hard and has been so supportive of my writing career.  With these economic times, I'm pretty sure a lot of people would be giving their spouse the side eye if they decided to forgo a more steady job to pursue a writing career full-time.  Instead my husband pushes me to take my skills to the next level.  He silently stalks my blog and reads my posts.

I'm thankful for my loyal readers and commentators who faithfully visit YUMMommy here at the blog, Facebook and Twitter.  It's hard baring your soul so to speak in such a public form.  However, all of the uplifting words and support makes it easier and worth it.  I know that my story is touching someone and that's always been my main purpose for starting this blog. 

What little moments of thankfulness stand out for you this week?
