{Be Thankful 25}

{Day 35 - Days Out and About}

My how time flies when your being sick...errr having fun! Well I've been sick for over a week and it's really messing with my blogging! LOL! My motto is ALWAYS better late than never so I'm still going to be working on these Be Thankful posts because it truly is the core of what the holidays are about for me and my family.

This past weekend during one of the four days off my lil family decided to get out of the house since we/I had been trying to lay low and rest up! ;) We decide that the park would be a fun escape from our home. I think that the days that are the most fun are ones spent together that don't cost a thing! Well after the park we headed to the Foothills library were I rummaged through the children's books for sale bin. I LOVE looking for the old vintage books that just have that special something that the newer ones don't. I found a book called "A Penny and a Periwinkle" by Josephine Aldridge that cost me a dollar so the day wasn't entirely free but what a great message this book has! It's a story about a resourceful fisherman named Sy that doesn't have much but really has great outlook on life and stretches what little he does have. Check this book out sometime or borrow it from me! ;) I'm so excited one day to read these stories to Reegan and pass on all these wonderful messages to her!

Be Thankful for what you do have! Keep that drive and positive outlook just like Sy did!
