Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for...

  • the good Lord and the patience and grace He has extended to me lately...maybe someday I won't require so much from Him!
  • my family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones...never take it for granted, folks!
  • my job, my coworkers, and every single one of the 128 little people I've had the privilege of teaching
  • another school year under my belt...I can't believe I've been doing this for half a decade now!
  • the towering pile of boxes in my classroom, because that means I have a room to move them into this summer
  • a mind and body that can handle nearly 14 hours of sorting, organizing, cleaning, and endurance test for sure
  • the fact that I'm nearly done in my classroom, because I'm the slowest packer in the history of creation and the dust in there is trying to kill me...seriously
  • a respiratory system that has (so far) refused to give in to the onslaught of dust...don't let me down, lungs! I've got things to do this summer!
  • summer break
  • a change in pace
  • plans to see the fam this Memorial Day weekend
  • a roof over my head, clean running water, food in my fridge, clothes in my closet, shoes on my feet, literacy, a car that gets great gas mileage, a teeny little bit of money in the bank, hair on my head
  • vitamins
  • summer break
  • Pandora radio
  • FriendshipFest 2012 in the works...I hope we can make it happen because I miss my friends in a large way
  • getting to spend some time talking to/visiting with my dear sister-in-law-to-be excited to finally have a sister!
  • a chance to rest and relax...much, much needed
  • summer break
  • the nice breezes we've had this week...I'm glad I stopped to notice them, because it seems like they're gone for the next 5 months
  • summer break



  1. I love your idea of a friendship fest...I may steal it. And congratulations on another year of pouring your life into others.
    Enjoy your summer.

  2. Annesta, my group of college friends and I had our first FriendshipFest last summer and we're hoping to make it a tradition. So fun! Thanks for the congrats, and I'm VERY much enjoying my break so far :) Thanks for stopping in!



Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
