Thankful Thursday

Today, this first day of March, I am thankful for so many things...
  • the good Lord and the fact the He never, ever, ever gives up on me
  • my family and friends...I've rediscovered this week that I have literally the best family and friends in the universe
  • my health, and the health of my family and friends
  • the fact that my eyes can see and my ears can hear
  • a roof over my head, clothes in my closet, food in my fridge, shoes on my feet, clean running water, a totally dependable car that gets killer gas mileage
  • my job, my coworkers, and the little people I spend my days with
  • all of my students officially memorizing the Preamble...thank you, Schoolhouse Rock!
  • the pretty Bradford pear trees that have started blooming...just lovely
  • confidence and faith
  • laughter, and lots of chances to experience it this week
  • a very successful D.C. trip meeting tonight, even thought it's made for a very long day...the folks on our bus seem to be an incredible bunch!
  • having a fun trip to our nation's capital to look forward to
  • hard times, because they make me appreciate the good times so much more
  • the 5 lb. box of delightful little mandarins I bought this week...5 lbs. of fruit is a lot for one person, but I ain't skeered...I can take it
  • good test results...answered and unanswered prayers right there!
  • quiet
  • knowing how to sew, and some time to play around with some new projects lately
  • a lovely little dinner out with a new friend and an old friend last night...great conversation, great company
  • payday!
  • making some wise financial decisions
  • a weekend coming up...much needed
  • fun plans for the aforementioned weekend :)



  1. You always remind me to be thankful for blessings I take for granted. We like those little boxes of oranges too, Owen particularly likes to take a little orange pieces and squeeze it til juice squirts everywhere. He thinks this is funny. So Mama is pretty much the only one "eating" them. ha. Happy weekend!

  2. There is so much to be thankful for...all the time!!!
    I can't believe it's already time to think and plan foryour wonderful DC trip. It seems like you just posted about your trip.
    I don't know about you but I am so looking forward to spring break!!!!
    Hope you have a restful weekends.

  3. Elizabeth, the thought of little Owen squeezing orange juice everywhere made me smile. I bet he's loving life these days! Happy weekend to you and yours, my friend! Please stay safe with the bad weather coming through.


  4. Annesta, it was so good to hear from you! I reread my trip posts the other night, and it really does seem like we were just there. Time flies, my friend!

    I am also VERY much looking forward to spring break. When is yours? Not that I'm counting or anything, but if I was, I'd know that there are only 10 schooldays left :)

    Happy weekend, friend!
