Thankful Thursday



Good Thankful Thursday to you! Today's thanks off the top of my head are:
  • As mundane & non-challenging as my job is, I am thankful for it, as it does pay the bills
  • Watching Son with his basketball team. They have such a brotherhood & they're so kind to each other. I will forever be thankful to Eunice Shriver Kennedy for Special Olympics
  • The peaceful feeling I've been having for the past few days. I feel God's presence so strongly
  • The sky when it looks like it does in these pictures
  • That this Sunday, we're all getting together & celebrate mom's 79th birthday. I'm thankful for her, daily
  • The general kindness of [some] folks
  • That we haven't had snow or any sign of it [yet]. I pray for a snow-free winter
  • That Son (even though 24 years) is looking forward to telling "Santa" what he wants for Christmas @ his job's Christmas party tomorrow (I wasn't sure he was still a believer - I'm THRILLED that he is)
  • That I got all my Christmas cards out, including ones to everyone on my 'angel' list. I don't know them; they don't know me, but I hope the card brings them joy
  • That "D" will get the Christmas tree tomorrow (with extra cuttings for the fireplace) & it will be there when I get home from work. I'm looking forward to the smell
  • That even though I feel like I'm @ a stop while the rest of the world moves on, that there's something 'big & exciting' out there for me yet!
Stay thankful, everyone!!
