Gratitude challenge day 17...

Today was one of those days... a day that totally got away from me... we all have 'em... days that begin with good intentions and end with long appointments at various offices or even longer minutes taxing our children around... or both.

So, what's my Brenda's gratitude challenge post today?  What is it that I am grateful for?  What one thing made my day today?



We've had seasons in our family's life where McDonald's is a main dinner option.  However, we haven't been in a while and today I was grateful for fries and a sandwich between appointments.  It just made the day a little bit easier and put a smile on all four of our faces.


  1. Sometimes convenience is a keeper of sanity! I can't see your pictures, but I can imagine. :) After all, McDonald's cokes are my favorite.

  2. Mickey D's has come to the rescue here more than a few times. My kids began to think it was a good thing when I was having a bad day! It was like "Yey! Mom has a migraine, Pizza delivery!!

  3. Conveniences like that help keep little stomachs happy for us,too. We have been packing peanut butter sandwiches more often when we know we will be out, so getting to go through the drive through is an even bigger treat to the kids now.

  4. Aahh, yes, what a nice break not to have to prepare a meal once in a while...On days when I know we get to have pizza or $1 Arby sandwiches, I feel my shoulders let down as I exhale. A nice little treat for a busy mom. And a huge treat for the children!

  5. Those $1 cokes get me a couple of times a week!!!:)
    Enjoy the night,

  6. Thanks for sharing. I am glad you had the opportunity to be together and enjoy the time.


Thank you for your kind words!
