Thankful Thursday

Dear merciful heavens. I just realized it's been nearly a month since I posted, and that makes me a bit sad. Life is unrelentingly busy right now, and while it's mostly a good busy, it's still just a busy busy. I'm working every single day to keep my head above water, some days more successfully than others. Life is so good, but I'm just trying to hang on right now. Maybe things will slow down soon, and then I'll get to complain about being bored. :)

Today I am thankful for...

  • the good Lord and His tremendous patience with me...maybe someday I won't test it so much!
  • my precious family and too-good-to-me friends
  • my sweet, sweet Daddy and the fact that he decided to be born today some years ago...I think you hung the moon, Paw, and I can't wait to celebrate you this weekend! Happy birthday and I love you bunches!
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • some good news from Mom yesterday
  • my job, my absolutely wonderful students (I seriously mean that...they're incredible), coworkers that keep me laughing, and our lovely building
  • a new MARRIAGE to celebrate in exactly one month...I am so excited for Bub and Olivia I can hardly stand it!!!!
  • my (currently...ha) tidy little home
  • a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, clothes in my closet, food in my fridge, clean running water, a paid-off and very dependable car, enough money to take care of my needs
  • eyes that see, ears that hear, a nose that smells, hands and feet and arms and legs that work the way they're supposed to, a brain that thinks like it should
  • words of wisdom from Mimi and Grandad...I love them more than they'll ever know
  • Tuesday afternoon tutoring sessions...they very often make the rest of my week sunshiney 
  • the arrival of glorious fall weather this week...this lifts my spirits like very little else this time of year
  • a fun day planned at school tomorrow...Fun Run...Staff vs. Students volleyball game...water balloon over the head for yours truly
  • the excitement my students have over being able to pop a water balloon over their teacher's head...they have been waiting for this for weeks :)
  • my students wanting to call Daddy today and sing "Happy Birthday" to him...they loved it, and I think he loved it even more
  • the Monday morning prayer group that Renita leads...what a great way to start off the week!
  • being able to open my windows and turn off the AC
  • laughter
  • fun plans over the next handful of weeks
  • peace and contentment
  • grace
  • fun plans this weekend

HAPPY WEEKEND, yall! Get out there and do something fun with it!
