Thankful Thursday

Today, on this last Thursday of February, I am thankful for...

  • the grace and never-ending patience of the good Lord
  • faith
  • my man
  • my family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • a mind that recalls nearly everything I stuff in it...I'm learning not to take my memory for granted
  • a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, clothes in my closet, food in my fridge, clean running water whenever I want it, a (little teeny tiny) bit of money in the bank
  • legs that are strong enough for me to walk miles every week
  • my job, my coworkers, my beautiful school, and the little people I get to spend my days with
  • challenges...I'm determined to use them to make me a stronger, better person
  • a fun return trip to D.C. coming up...what's more fun than traveling 13 hours on a bus to our nation's great capital with a group of 300 other people? :)
  • the opportunity to make up a whole mess of burp cloths this, satisfying, and easy
  • getting to celebrate Mama's birthday with the fam this weekend
  • a glorious, much-needed day off for Presidents' Day
  • remarkably warm, springlike weather lately...seeing as how it was 75 degrees today, can we officially declare that winter isn't going to happen this year?
  • happy, healthy pregnancies for some sweet mamas-to-be who really appreciate the precious gift they've been given
  • good music
  • my fabulous new little cheek/lip "color stick"...$1 at Target, E.L.F. brand, "Pink Lemonade"'s a delight
  • the subtle smell of wood smoke drifting around the little town where I work...a new high school is being built (yay!) and the brush is being burned off...I love the smell of wood smoke, and I just LOVE the excitement that this town has over its very first high school being built
  • laughter
  • a sense of humor, both in me and the people I choose to surround myself with
  • the gift of sleeping through the night, and my comfortable bed



  1. Thankful you are back in blog world! Yay! Thanks for reminding us how blessed we all are. Happy Weekend friend!

  2. We are all so blessed...we just have to stop and realize it. Match Day is getting so close...can't wait to hear what the good Lord has in store for your little family of 3 :) Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth!
