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 http://www.firstgiving.com/hallietwomey. 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.
