Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for...

  • the good Lord
  • my family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • actually getting a Thankful Thursday post done this week...I'm a slacker no more! Well, at least for the moment.
  • a roof over my head, clean running water, food in my fridge, shoes on my feet, clothes in my closet, a paid-off car, a dishwasher, air conditioning
  • the fact that I can read
  • trips to the library
  • my job and the lovely breaks it provides me
  • the fact that I have a job to return to next month when this lovely break is over
  • a very productive and FUN is flying by but I've made some great memories
  • getting to jump in some puddles today
  • being halfway done with my literacy tutor training...I'm excited to see who I get matched with!
  • finally getting to watch the first season of Downton Abbey...I've been on the waiting list at the library since the beginning of May, and it was completely worth the wait. I can't wait to get my hands on season 2. If you haven't watched this yet, do yourself a favor and get on it ASAP. I'm hooked.
  • being dismissed early from jury duty...woohoo!
  • making a new friend to keep me company during jury duty
  • several chances to explore and fall in love with downtown Birmingham...I feel like we're pretty tight friends now
  • a wonderful party last week to celebrate Bubba and Olivia's engagement...Mary Meigs, you certainly were the hostess with the mostest!
  • vitamins
  • sunscreen
  • my Brita pitcher
  • people who go to the trouble of encouraging others...the world would be a bummer of a place without people like that
  • the chance to see my class list's exciting to see the names of your new students, even if you don't know who they are yet :)
  • (a little) progress in my classroom
  • some blessed, wonderful, much-needed rain this week



  1. What a great list of blessings! We have had some wonderful rain, too. It's so much better than the draught from last summer.

  2. Annesta, the rain sure has been a blessing. I absolutely love the smell of summer rain :)

    Happy new week, friend!



Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
