Thankful Thursday

Thursday is the day of the week that I ask everyone to pause to count their blessings. Yes, even you! We all have a lot to be thankful for and it is nice to take a moment to reflect. This week (in no particular order) I am thankful for:

1) Winning! I won a contest over at Hallie's and am now the proud owner of two oh-so-cute pillows. The best news is that I GET TO MEET HALLIE IN PERSON! The second bonus is that I imagine that our mutual friend, Mary Ellen, will also come. Wow, if I hang out for a couple of hours with two amazing awesome and entertaining people like Hallie and Mary Ellen, do you think people will think I am awesome too? Here's hoping.

2) I am thankful for two pets who like to cuddle on these cold winter nights.

3) I am thankful for the opportunity to visit with scout parents last night.

4) I am thankful that I have tomorrow off. Still trying to burn some vacation time.

5) I am thankful that my vacation is approaching with incredible speed.

6) I am thankful that my husband is willing to go to a retirement party this weekend (and drive 3 hours each way) even though I know he really doesn't want to.

7) I am thankful for the music students who are coming over to my house this weekend to staple raffle tickets so I don't have to.

8) I am thankful for the stranger who took time out of her life to look my phone number and call me to leave positive comments on my answering machine about a letter to the editor that I recently wrote.

9) I am thankful for the bloggers who have added me on facebook. I am enjoying getting to know you a little better.

What are you thankful for this week?

Here's to reflections.


  1. Congratulations to you for winningthose oh so cute pillows! (I'm a little jealous, but I am glad it was you who won them) Please, please, please, say hello to Mary Ellen for me. And tell her I understand why she isn't blogging now, but I miss her so much!
    Hurrah for that stranger who went out of her way to leave positive many would only take the time to do the opposite!
    Have a great visit with Hallie and Mary Ellen!

  2. Look at you winning those pillows!! Congratulations :)
