Thankful Thursday

This week has sprouted wings and literally flown away. Where did it go? I'm just holding on tight and trying to enjoy the ride! Today I am thankful for...
  • the unending, never-failing grace of the good Lord
  • my family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • my job, my coworkers, our lovely building, and the wonderful little people I spend my days with
  • the stack of papers I need to grade tonight, because that means I have a job
  • a great workshop yesterday, and getting to see some former Auburn classmates/former, unexpected reunion!
  • the aforementioned workshop serving as a reminder of the kind of teacher I want to be
  • hot showers and clean, running water absolutely any time I want it
  • a roof over my head, food in my fridge, clothes in my closet, shoes on my feet, electricity, a darling little car that gets really great gas mileage
  • just enough money to get me through the month and, coming up tomorrow, PAYDAY :)
  • optimism
  • a killer walk this evening...I walked my legs off but it feels so good
  • beautiful spring weather
  • my pretty little plants growing and thriving...I love growing things
  • a wonderful weekend last week, and a much-anticipated one this week
  • contentment and peace
  • healthy pregnancies and babies for some dear girls in my life...more babies coming soon! Love :)
  • deciding to paint my toenails and wear sandals to work today...spring is officially here
  • the opportunity to see some former students today at the band/show choir always makes me happy to see my former schoolbabies thriving in their new "big kid lives"
  • fun trips to look forward to
  • random, weirdo links via emails from this article and then remind yourself: these people walk among us. Yep.
  • getting to catch up with Neeley earlier this week, only wish it were under happier circumstances...I know she and her family would appreciate your prayers
  • cleaning house, literally and figuratively...refreshing and certainly for the best
  • people who pay attention to their grammar
  • good manners
  • finding and reading an old journal...what a perspective check! Great reminder that my plan is very often not the best one...I need to let God drive more often :)
  • laughter



  1. Oh, yes! God's plans are always the best but that is such a hard lesson to learn.
    Love your thankful Thursday list.

  2. Annesta, you're right! Definitely a hard lesson to learn, and one that I'm reminding myself of on a daily basis. I have a feeling I'm going to be a work in progress...for life :)

    Thank you so much for stopping by. Your kind words and encouragement mean the world to me!
