I'm Thankful For Chaos!

I’ve been feeling pretty thankful, not just for the usual stuff of having a business, good health, and a roof over our heads, although I’m very grateful for all that stuff.
I’ve just been feeling especially thankful for all the chaos, commotion, and pandemonium in our house. (when it’s not driving me nuts.)
I’ve always been aware that my children aren’t going to be around my house forever, but the other night my husband and I were talking about how fast time is flying by with the kids.
Pretty soon, I won't be waking up every 3 hours to feed a newborn:( Or getting sloppy wet kisses from Farrah. (snot and all) Having Landen bend over the side of my bed in the early morning with his bottom in my face saying, " mommy wipe me." I won't be having Faith make me notes and pictures everyday out of our business flyers that say Mommy your the best and most prettiest mommy ever. Then wanting me to hang them up all over the house. Long will be the days Austin begs me for more webkinz or is wrestling his brother in the living room. The sounds of babies crying and kids saying mommy watch me,mommy,mommy,mom,mommy,mom....
I could go on, but I won’t. Instead, I’m going to be thankful for:
- unrelenting messes
- constant chaos
- clutter galore
- fighting and bickering
- bad attitudes
- noise......and so on

oh, yes I am thankful for my husband who lets me think I run the show!
What "stuff" are you thankful for???

I love this post. It is a great eye opener to enjoy even the crazieness of our lives because someday it wont be crazy. It will be a distant memory. I'm going to post mine too!

thanks for reminding me i need to be thankful for the kids making placemats for us to eat thanksgiving dinner on and then leaving everything a mess. i am so thankful for all the blessing that i have and i am also reminded that our kids are growing up so fast and i will be lost without them.

I will miss the "shows" the girls have practiced all day to do for mommy & daddy that evening. The giggling, the snuggling, the running up and down the hardwood floors, teaching them, learning from them, and most of all, God speaking to me through them!
