Thankful Thursday, now that it's Sunday and all

One of these weeks, I'll actually have time to sit down on a Thursday to write my Thankful Thursday post. I've been putting in some seriously long hours at work trying to stay one step ahead of the new common core, and that leaves very little time during the week for anything other than eating and sleeping. We're making some amazing things happen at school, though, so hopefully all these long hours are worth it!

Today I am thankful for...

  • the good Lord and the fact that His plan always wins out, even when it doesn't match up with mine (I should say...especially when it doesn't match up with mine!)
  • my family and friends
  • a glorious, sunny, breezy, beautiful first day of fall has been good for my soul
  • my job, the 27 sweet peas I get to spend my days with, and my hardworking coworkers
  • patience
  • a roof over my head, clean running water, food in my fridge, clothes in my closet, shoes on my feet, my comfortable bed, a dependable car, my washer and dryer, the gadgets and doodads that make my life more convenient, a tidy little home
  • church with Byrne and John today...great message, and I love seeing those two lovebirds together :)
  • lunch at California Pizza Kitchen...I especially love the fact that since my first pizza was "too done" (the waiter's words, not mine), they let me keep that one and sent out another one...I have enough pizza to last for days!
  • seeing the Fain fam at lunch...what a lovely group of folks they are!
  • getting to sing this song at church of my favorites
  • answered and unanswered prayers
  • my new phone
  • enough money to cover my needs and a few of my wants
  • my new small group, and a fun supper/flower arranging lesson earlier this week
  • hard times, because I truly do think that some incredible things can come as a result of perseverance and strength and faith
  • a really lazy day yesterday and a near-victory for my's still better than last year :)
  • knocking out Week 6 of Couch to 5K
  • legs that are strong enough to run
  • some fun lessons planned this week, and the fact that my students are PUMPED about the novel I'm reading them right now...I love to see kids excited about learning
  • sunscreen and moisturizer
  • long talks with great friends
  • some rain yesterday
  • good sleep
  • peace and contentment
