strawberries and spunk

"Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings."   ~William Arthur Ward

There are times when you just have to stop and do something that you enjoy because you can...because you want to. This is what this morning was all about for me.  I took a few extra minutes this morning and made my boys homemade waffles for breakfast.  Normally, waffles are reserved for our "breakfast for dinner" meal.  Not today.  Much to my boys' delight, I might add.  After the waffles, I made one of Scott's favorites...strawberry pie.  Much to Scott's delight, I might also add.  From what I hear, it is pretty tasty. 
One of today's gifts was being able to stop looking at my to do list and simply doing something for others because I wanted to do it.

Made time for Core Synergistics this afternoon...stack foot stagger hands push ups is one of my favorite exercises in this workout.Not because I am perfect at doing it, but because of how much I have improved in doing it over the past year. It's about progress, not perfection.
