Thankful Thursday

I'm back, after a very unintentional hiatus. School has started back and I have an INCREDIBLE class (yay!), but I'm still working to get to the point where my head is above water. I'm not there yet...maybe soon!

Today I am thankful for...
  • the good Lord and His endless love, mercy, grace, wisdom, and patience
  • my family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • my job, my incredible coworkers, our lovely building, and the fabulous little people I get to spend my days with...I can't describe how much I adore my new class
  • a long weekend coming up
  • clean running water, food in my fridge, a roof over my head, a lovely bed to sleep in, shoes on my feet, clothes in my closet, hot showers and the feeling of being clean
  • my aching feet and legs, because that means I have them
  • the complete and utter exhaustion that has come over me this week, because it means I'm giving all I can to my students
  • a brain that remembers everything I stuff in it, eyes that see, ears that hear, hands and arms that do exactly what I need them to do
  • a long weekend coming up
  • payday tomorrow!
  • all the growing and learning I've done in the last 365 days; I hope to keep growing and learning and to never get back to that place
  • clarity and contentment (working on that one each and every day!)
  • the kickoff of Auburn's football season in TWO days...War Eagle, friends!!!!
  • some really, truly dependable people who swoop in around me when I'm feeling discouraged
  • thoughtfulness...have you done something thoughtful for someone today? If not, get after it!
  • a long weekend coming up
  • getting to tutor an adult learner every week...I've gotten past the nerves and look forward to it every single week...such a blessing to me!
  • early bedtimes...if being in bed by 8:30 is wrong, I sure don't wanna be right
  • the fact that, unlike this time last year, I don't look like Garth Brooks
  • funny church marquee sayings
  • a few chances coming up to celebrate my brother and sister-in-law-to-be...I love them like crazy and I'm so excited for them!
  • the fact that Hurricane Isaac wasn't any worse than it has been...I know the flooding is a huge bummer, but at least it seems like that's all it will be...prayers to those who are in the path
  • my Brita pitcher
  • my commitment to wearing a dress or skirt every day this far, so good...and SO much more comfortable in the 1,000% humidity than pants
  • vitamin C
  • my computer
  • emails and texts that make me smile
  • blog friends who still love me when I disappear for weeks at a time
  • a chance to sit and rest and just BE this weekend...very much-needed...praise the Lord!
  • a long weekend coming up
  • this song, which has earned lots of playtime in my world this week...(Kate, I'm so sorry if this makes you want to pour bleach in your ears. I know you despise Sugarland and I'm not a huge fan myself, but I do like this song. You're gonna have to build a bridge, sweet girl!)

  1. You are so funny! I really hope your sweet friend can refrain from the whole bleach pouring in her ears as I think that would be just awful!
    I'm so glad you have a good class. My daughter is loving her student teaching.
    My whole30 is going great even if I haven't journalese in awhile.
    Enjoy your long weekend.


Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
