Welcome to Everyday Things, hosted by Everyday Mommy. This weekly feature is designed to encourage all of us to embrace contentment and to appreciate the everyday things which we often take for granted.
Today I am thankful for the quiet in our house in the mornings before the kids wake up - I am a morning person, so I (almost) always get up before them and get ready. My children are remarkably consistent about their waking times, so it's easy to plan this and have a few minutes of silence before the house awakens. Sometimes it is the only time all day where I can hear myself think and I treasure it.
