Gratefulness is something we should be practicing every day. [tweet this]

On to # 2 of the things I'm grateful for series for

this year's goal

. I have a feeling it's going to be a bit harder this time around to come up with things to be grateful for since I got rid of the most obvious ones in my

last post

. Hopefully, after a little bit of practice reflecting on the beautiful aspects of my life, it'll get easier!

What are you grateful for this month?

1. Love

I'm so thankful to have so many people to love and have them love me in return. My husband, my children, my siblings and friends. I'm so incredibly lucky to have all of you in my life.

2. Having children to play with

Children are so pure and innocent, full of energy and love. It's such a blessing to have children that you can pretty much play with however you want. I'm the type of mom that will take every opportunity to dance in the rain, roll in mud, climb trees, and all that jazz. :)

3. Free health care

I recently became aware that not everyone gets free health care around the world and I've been so spoiled in Canada that I never even stopped to imagine what it must be like to not have free health care. I'm incredibly thankful that I don't have to think twice about my family's health and I can just walk into any hospital or clinic and get the required treatment. THANK YOU CANADA!

4. Color

Life in black and white? Um, no.

5. Going to Mexico

One of the many perks of being married to a Mexican is that I get to Mexico with my littles every couple of years. I've always loved to travel and being able to see loved ones at the same time is so much fun.

6. Pillows

They're so soft and fluffy. What would I do without



7. Baby giggles

Melts my heart every time.

8. Indoor s'mores and fires

Have to find something to do during those really cold winter days right? And what's the point of having a fire place if you don't use it? ;)

9. Quiet time

As much as I love to play with my children, I do love my quiet time to do crafty things, take pictures and blog! It helps me remember who I am.

10. My mistakes

When you're in the middle of difficult moment in your life, brought on by very unfortunate mistakes, sometime it's hard to see the good side of it. But today, I'm grateful for all those mistakes I made, because it made me the person I am today, and I'm damn proud of it.
