Its been a busy few days and I haven't been able to keep up with this. But I promised myself I will have one for each day so which it isn't being blogged on the day of, I do have reasons to be thankful.
Here they go!
Today, I am thankful for peace of mind.
I often take it for granted until something happens to shake my mostly calm thoughts. I have had a lot going on around me but with each day, God has showed me how to deal with/tackle different situations and I am thankful for that.
Today was a busy day but we were able to accomplish a lot. I am thankful for our new home. In prior years, we haven't really done a lot of decorating because we lived in a condo. This year, we are going to do a little more and I am thankful we are blessed to be able to do that.
I am thankful for sleep! This is another one I take for granted until I don't get enough sleep and then start eating a lot of being very cranky!
We went to get my car appraised in preparation for trading it in. After we got back home, hubby took the baby and attempted to let me sleep. I didn't sleep much. Only got 30-minutes but it felt like 3 hours!
Today, I am thankful for the ability to telework from home. We have had a couple of vandalism incidents in recent weeks but we haven't been able to catch the culprit. Since I telework on Mondays, I just happened to look out the window when I noticed a kid moving our down spout trays. It wasn't a big deal but at least now we know. Hubby and I are both in agreement that if it continues, we will approach the young man's parents but for now, we are happy it isn't a hate crime (yes, my mind went there! :-)) or something like that.
This is a double blessing day! I am thankful for my new car (I will blog more on that later). J & I took the day off so we could go car shopping without JOE. We figured it would work in our favor if we go towards the end of the month and in the middle of the week. We were right. We got a lot of attention and were able to walk out with a good deal. God is good!
Also, I am thankful for my awesome mom. Today is her birthday and each day, I am VERY thankful that God made me her daughter. She is truly a gift and she has blessed me and the rest of our family with so much that words cannot fully explain how much we lot and appreciate her. She is truly the Matriarch of our family!
Today, I am thankful for helpful co-workers who say positive words to uplift me. I have gotten some pretty nasty comments in the past in reaction to my marrying J and also having JOE. So it is always nice and refreshing to get a positive compliment from another co-worker.
The month is almost over and we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow. What are you thankful for?
