Thankful Thursday

I'm still under the weather. I'm tired. I'm tired of functioning at just 70 %. I'm ready for the weekend. Still, I'm so blessed. I'm officially done complaining. To quote the Lumineers, it's better to feel pain [sinus or otherwise] than nothing at all. Well said, guys.

Today I am thankful for...

  • the good Lord
  • my handsome B and the way he makes me laugh every. single. day.
  • my dear family and friends
  • a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, clean clothes in my closet, food in my fridge, clean running water, a comfortable bed, a dishwasher, hot showers, soap, a fuel-efficient car, enough money to cover my needs, a new budget that reminds me how unnecessary most of my "wants" are
  • my job, my sweet little schoolbabies, the supportive parents of my schoolbabies, and my precious coworkers
  • the fact that my "colonists" haven't yet staged a revolt, even though evil Queen Johnston has been taxing them Skittles all week long
  • Career Day coming up of my favorite days of the whole school year!
  • a nice, long chat with Sash last night
  • getting to catch up with Mimi and Grandad over the those two crazy kids
  • a phone call from my darling Bub the other day...he makes me prouder of him every time we talk
  • my phone and the way it helps me stay in touch with my people
  • a visit to the ol' Johnston homestead (and a visit with sweet Mr. Steele) last Saturday
  • a weekend off for B and a couch date planned to catch up on Justified...the perfect evening :)
  • vitamins and Advil
  • the memories of all those times when I felt really great...still waiting for this sinus pain to pack up and leave me the heck alone
  • my fuzzy slippers
  • the EXCITING news that I'm moving to a brand new little home next month!!!!!!! Well, it's certainly not brand new, but it's new to me. I'm so excited!
  • orders for a birthday banner and some burp cloths this week...I better get to sewing. Extra moolah? Yes, please!
  • lotion and Cetaphil face wash
  • a gorgeous, sunshiney day yesterday
  • a long walk yesterday afternoon...I enjoyed it even though it led to a coughing fit that only lasted, you know, all night
  • the opportunity to tutor a very hard-working gentleman every week...his reading skills are getting better and better, and I just love getting to see his confidence level increase every session. What a blessing!
  • getting to take some pictures last weekend
  • the delectable treat I made this sounds so simple that you wonder how it could be anything special, but trust is. Way, way yum. Simple and tasty is my kinda food. Thanks, Pinterest!
  • my Brita pitcher
  • contentment
  • great music...the Lumineers are currently making my musical world go 'round...I think they're just about the coolest (after Mumford and Sons, of course)
