Yep... a fresh new year of starting Thankful Thursday.
You may see something different this year. I started a journal/calendar where I am writing down things I am thankful for every day on there. I am also numbering them as the year goes along. I have the goal to hit at least 1,000 things I am thankful for this year. I'm hoping I'll hit more - which is a fantastic thing... so if you see a number before a "Thankful entry" then just ignore it if you want... it's just a good way for me to look back at my calendar & see the date it was on...
& I could write all of them down, but some of them may be really personal or things not to share with the world... plus, some may be repetitive... so you may see skipping of numbers. Or something may just come to mind & it may not even have a number....
The point of it all? Don't let the numbers confuse you...
This week, I am Thankful For:
2 / Great "After Christmas" sales... I love a good 50% off items!
3 / The grocery store, Kroger had excellent customer service! Ricky had bought some things at the store that were Christmas items - like a Belle ornament!!! & cute Disney Christmas mugs - & then left it in his cart when he went home. DANG IT!!!!!... but he went back to Kroger to see if someone turned it in. They hadn't. But the manager ended up taking his receipt & gave him his money back for the lost goods! WHAT? How kind was that? They didn't have to do that. I give that place kudos for being so nice to their customers.
5 / Understanding friends. When Ricky was sick & we had to cancel our get together with friends to celebrate Christmas, they totally were fine with it. We appreciate good friends.
8 / Found some cold medicine in the back of the cabinet for Ricky when the pharmacy was closed.
10 / The sun came out. It's been so rainy & gloomy - I can't handle it. I am solar powered, I'm convinced so when the sun came out, I just sat with my face to the window for a few minutes to soak it in.
15 / Throat lozenges & hot tea with lemon & honey when you have a sore throat
16 / Water!!!! You don't know what you got till its gone. We woke up Wednesday with NO WATER. Apparently there was a leak somewhere & we had not one drop from our faucets. THANKFULLY, we had a case of water in our garage & I have reusable bottles that I keep full of water in our fridge - so we got to use those to brush our teeth, rinse out breakfast plates, give the dogs their water. You forget about the luxuries we have in this world & that there are some people that don't have water every day at their convenience.
What are you Thankful For this week?
