I've been on break far too long. I've decided to give this thing another go. Not much tonight. Just brought everyone out from the frigid arctic that was my header. We'll see if I can get things more consistent this time around. Things are happening. Life is being lived. Stay tuned.
While I wish I wasn't rushing time I am. Today is Thursday which means there is only one more day until Friday! I LIVE for weekends. Hmmm, I wonder if that is why I'm so thankful on Thursdays! :)
Thankful that putting air in my tires made my van stop feeling so wobbly.
Thankful that I have two play dates tomorrow! Well not exactly play dates I guess but time to spend with friends. Oh and did I mention they both involve food and friends and ME not cooking? Joy of joys!!!
Thankful that I got up the nerve to call the hair salon and make an appointment and GET one for this afternoon.
Thankful for the sunshine and promise of above 50 degree weather this weekend.
Thankful for the pep talk from a dear sweet friend who knows how much I struggle with the stinky stanky addiction to food.
Thankful for the reprimand from another dear soul who made it a point to let me know they didn't appreciate me knocking myself down. Though you nearly brought me to tears you were right. I will never achieve what I want if I keep being so negative.
Thankful that the stomach bug I THOUGHT I was getting turned out to be NOT the dreaded stomach bug.
Thankful that though the dishwasher is full of clean dishes and the sink full of dirty dishes, the law DID get the future pilot out for new shoes. Now if he would just impress me and resolve the dish issue. :-P
Thankful that everyone survived my family room reorg. Now if I could just get happy about it. LOL.
Thankful for my favorite first born son has a girlfriend in his life again. One that loves God and seems to be keeping him grounded.
Thank you Jesus for carrying out your plan in my life and helping me to grow more and more accepting that it's you, not I, who is in charge.
It's been a pretty busy week around here. Scrambling to get the house in order after a house full of people. Tell me, how is it a house just goes to pieces when the kids are home from school for a while? I'll tell you what. I feel for you homeschoolers. I don't know that my house could outlast my kids were they home all day.
I'm blessed though. And I am here to tell you so! Not in a bragging sort of way though. To God be the glory!
Thankfully blessed in being able to get in all of my hours at work this week--even with a few shorter than expected days. Only 12 hours to go to make up for the snow! Woot Woot!
Thankful that I completed my performance evaluation. I dread that every year. I beg to be a pauper rather than have to think of things to say about myself. Just weirds me out.
Thankful for friends who care enough about me to fuss when they think I should make appointments with people I'd rather not make appointments with. Alex, I will, before the end of 2009 I WILL listen to you. I will. I'd promise but I kid you not, I heard on my bible podcast that God tells us just to say, "I will. Not promise or swear or anything." (That could get me out of SOOOOO many commitments don'tcha think?)
Thankful that, save a few flakes here and there, we did not get more dumps of snow. I'm pretty ready for it to turn my lawn back to it's well nourished green.
Thankful that I'm getting the hang of things at work and still loving it. EVERY SINGLE DAY I'm thankful for that.
Thankful that my car is still holding up.
Thankful for smarty pants friends who convince me that my car will hold up.
Thankful that my favorite little girl is getting an opportunity to learn self-defense in school. She's having a great time too!
Thankful that my mood is perking up and that currently I'm not having great feelings of being overwhelmed. (Praying hard that those feelings will stay)
Last but not least so very thankful for the future pilot. My baby. Who really isn't a baby but will always be MY baby. He was born just five short years ago today and, though I was scared as heck to find out I was carrying him, I could not imagine a world with out the delight he has given me.
Thank you Jesus You give so much to please us. A thoughtful Father Giving as no other. Thank you so much for everything that You touch. Everything around me So much pleasure to see. May I never stop gazing On Your love. So amazing!
