Thankful Thursday

Once again, it is another edition of Thankful Thursday. Thursday is the day I pause and reflect on how very fortunate I am. Even on those days when I wonder why I bother to get up in the morning, there is usually something big or small to be thankful for. Here is the time that I remind myself of that. I hope you will consider joining me. Mighty Mom has joined our thankful party. Go over and check out her Wonderful Life!

My thankful list (in no particular order) is:

Today the boss is providing lunch for the office. He does it once a month. This time, he is actually making us lunch and lobster rolls are on the menu. Yum!

My husband and son bought me Red Sox tickets for my birthday. We will be at the last regular season game on Sunday. Go Sox!

My son is taking the day of off work to spend my birthday with me. Of course, the above-referenced Red Sox tickets helped.

It is getting cooler in the evenings so I didn't overheat at karate on Tuesday. It makes class much more enjoyable if I don't throw-up. I am sure my fellow students would agree. (It has happened twice - yuck!)

That there are people in my community willing to question if closing our high school and sending our students to a neighboring school really will be in the best interest of our students. They are looking beyond the dollars and cents at what is best for the children.

That we were able to save our largest account this week. It was a lot of work but we won!

That I had such a fun time with my high school classmates this past weekend.

That one of my GNO friends took the time to drop me a card thanking me for my friendship. It made my day.

That my son has his eagle project selected. He will need to get the approvals but he has found something that he is interested in doing that will make a difference in the high school.

That my son and I are both starting to feel better.

What are you thankful for today?

Here's to appreciating all the good things.


  1. I'm happy for you, that you have so much to be grateful for. And yes, I know the joy of nailing down the Eagle project idea! I am still working on getting him to send the final draft of the proposal in. Then I will rest (for a while). My son, too, is doing a project at his high school; taking a disastrous mess of a storage room for Student Council and building permanent shelving to get it organized. I'd love to hear about your son's project :)

  2. Lovely list as always. I did a thankful list today too :)

  3. attitude of gratitude is contagious.

  4. What a great project, Mrs.4444. Our high school music teacher has an office that he only uses for storage as he has set his desk up in the music room. My son hopes to soundproof that room and turn it into a mini recording studio. This is something the music teacher and shop teacher had been discussing doing so the they seem very excited about the idea.
