Linking up with Emily for A Grateful Heart

With the weather this past week I can't help but be grateful for working at home. We've had rain, sleet, and snow the last 3 days and they say there is more to come. Before I worked at home I would worry myself sick the days leading up to a predicted snow storm. Even though it was imminent a storm was brewing and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it I would worry. And I mean to the point where I got migraines and would be nauseous.

I do not drive in these conditions...not at all. Texas isn't ever prepared for our once a year ice storms and neither are the crazies out on the roads. It's just not worth it to attempt to drive anywhere. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't feel guilty about missing work. And I would hardly be able to enjoy an ice snow day with my boys because I would be thinking about missing work. Yeah, no fun at all.

So, I am very, very grateful that I work at home. Yes, that means I still have to work with the rest of Texas shuts down. But, it also means no more stress and worry and I can actually enjoy my day and my boys being home with me. 

What are you grateful for this week?

  1. I'm so glad that you are working from home & even though, you still have to work, your boys get to be near you!!

  2. I love this about working from home too! I am so glad you got to just enjoy a day with the boys!

  3. I was feeling so envious of all the snow reports coming in on my instagram and bloglovin' feeds, until i started to read about the reality of snow/ice/blizzards!! I'm so glad you get to work at home and not worry about having to get anywhere, or your lads being away from you! (I hate driving in rain and high winds, i haven't ever experienced anything worse than that fortunately!) Take care and keep warm! :) x

  4. Yikes. I hope things are thawing out!
    I'm thankful we don't have the snow and ice to worry about.

  5. Crazy weather for sure. I agree I am very grateful I get to work from home too:) xo

  6. I am so grateful to work only a few miles from home and to have a dad that drives me back and forth. Now we are hunkered down and loving the almost eight inches of snow we have gotten already!

  7. SO glad you were able to work from home too!! I know not everyone has that option. Gosh I think about the postal workers, etc who work through some of this crazy weather - all while I sit inside a cozy, warm home. Sure makes counting my blessings (and including them in my prayers) pretty easy! ;)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
