The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.
~Dr. Robert Holden
This week I am Thankful For:
...A/C!!! Its like summer decided to say, BAM! I'M HERE! It is so miserable & humid & hot & all the other words you can think of with summer. I went out to pick up Harvey Dent's toys yesterday in the back yard & that feeling of walking back in a home with AC.... aaahhhh... best feeling ever.
... my hair stylist. She's also my friend. I loved getting my hair done this time because there was no one else in the shop but me & her. I love when we can have some good talks. Her washing my hair & straightening it & that awesome feeling of having someone brush your hair? that's just an extra bonus.
... Seeing familiar faces this weekend.
... Gotta note it again - I'm so thankful for my space being 'boxed' in at work. I love not having all eyes on me all day long. My mood at work has boosted 1000%
... Winning a free entry to the Color Run! It's this weekend & I'm so glad I get to do it ... & not pay anything. I can't believe its $50 to do this 5k... a 5K PEOPLE! That's just nuts to me. I remember when it was $40 & it killed me to pay that. I do know they are giving medals this time around, which is cool... but still. Ouch!
... Cheap reading glasses. I spent $275 just a few weeks ago to get glasses. Couldn't see out of them. Went back & got re-tested. They made the glasses STRONGER. What? I REALLY can't see out of them now. They are like sitting in a fish bowl. Needless to say, they're sitting in their case & I'm still sporting $10.00 reading glasses... that I can see out of.
... Getting to have fun & hang out with the youth kiddos at Operation Unicorn this past Friday. I have been to more "lock ins" as an adult then I ever did as an actual youth. #youthministrybonus
... still thankful to see Ricky serving in youth ministry. I love to see him stepping out & doing something out of the box for him.
... support from friends doing the 21 Day Fix. I love getting texts & messages on FB & comments in Instagram about how its going. & I love getting food ideas from other people on all the social media tools. I found an AWESOME dessert on Instagram that was so easy, low in calories, & made my whole week! If you want to know how my 21 Day Fix has been going, you can check right HERE - I'll be doing a recap on this blog at the end of it all as well.
What are you Thankful For this week?
