Do we really take the time we should to reflect on the things that we are thankful for? I know I don't, so on Thursdays, I am going to think about the things in my life that I should appreciate more. I am thankful for the big things - a loving family, relatively good health and amazing friends but I also want to focus on the little things that we often overlook.
I am thankful that my son did well his first day at his first job. He got to work 30 minutes longer than expected and is working tonight and one day this weekend. He will be able to put money in the bank for his trip to Germany next spring!
I am thankful that my karate class went so well this week. After getting sick in class (yuck!) last week, I was a little apprehensive about going this week. I had a great time! I am looking forward to my class tonight too.
I am thankful that I got to go to the Macaroni Grill last Friday night. Penne Rustica is still one of my favorite dishes ever.
I am thankful that my son had a great time at "band camp". The two concerts we went to absolutely rocked the house. Wow. What talent. It was amazing.
I am thankful that my son is home now. I missed him!
I am thankful that I am somewhat caught up at work right now. I have no idea how it happened (LOL) but I am really enjoying it. It is much less stressful. I am going to enjoy it while I have it because it isn't a usual situation.
I am thankful that my friend Mary Ellen had a job interview yesterday and has one tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for her. She deserves our good wishes and a dash of good luck. Any employer would be lucky to have her.
I am thankful that my vacation is less than 30 days away. Sorry to mention that again, but I need a vacation and counting down is the only thing keeping me sane.
I am thankful that I have a husband who noticed that I sounded tired yesterday when I left him voicemail and called to check to make sure I was OK.
I am very very thankful that my co-worker found out that the lump she found was just fluid that formed after her breast cancer surgery. We were all scared for her as she had just finished her treatment a few short months ago.
What are you thankful for today?
Here's to appreciation of all of the good things in life.
