Once again, it is Thankful Thursday!

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, good health and a job in this tough economy but I also want to focus on the little things that we often overlook.

I am VERY thankful that tonight is Girl's Night Out and I get to spend time with two of my favorite ladies. We have been friends for years and I am lucky to know both of them.

I am thankful that my son is doing well at his first job. He gets paid today. He has shown a lot of interest in the job (he calls in every day to see if they need him as a fill-in!) and he has gotten to work a lot of extra shifts. I am so proud of him.

I am thankful that I found a way to save money on one of the excursions on our cruise. Don't you just love the internet and how people post suggestions and don't you just love saving money?

I am thankful that my hubby was willing to work with me last night on some of my karate exercises.

I am thankful that I have reconnected with some of my high school friends on facebook. I made tentative plans to get together with one of them when my son and I go on our "road trip" this October.

I am thankful that my son knows what his summer assignment is for English. Now, I can order the book for him.

I am thankful that my hubby chased the bat out of our bedroom the other night.

I am thankful that I was able to go off my medicine and not have a relapse.

I am thankful that Hallie's raffle drawing is coming up soon. It's not too late, however, to get in on the fun. You can still donate over at Not only is it a fantastic cause, but you can win lots of really cool prizes.

Finally, I am thankful that my vacation is only 22 days away! Yee Hah!

What are you thankful for today?

Here's to appreciating the little things we have going for us.


  1. I'm thankful your hubby chased the bat out of your room too!!

    otherwise we'd have a blog post about BAT DROPPINGS ON YOUR BED!! it's just too much for the imagination to handle!


  2. A bat? I would be freaking!!!

    Have fun with the girls tonight.

  3. I'm thankful your husband got that bat out of the room too! He's your hero!!!
    YAY for your son doing so well and liking his job...WAY TO GO! If he wants, he could have mine too. (No...just kidding, cause I am so tired)
    And speaking of...I am thankful I am so tired. It means I put in a good day of work. (So many aren't fortunate to have a job to go to.
