Today I am Thankful for:
(The numbers refer to my journal for the One-Thousand Gifts... in other words, just ignore them)
168 / Getting a fun surprise in the mail! My friend got me all geared up for the coolest outfit I'll ever sport in a half marathon! I can't wait to find a shirt to get that silhouette & those words on... & a sparkle skirt? This may very well be my favorite outfit that I may wear every day of my life!!!
169 // as frustrating as it was to get my tooth all prepped up & ready for my crown & then finding a stupid dang-gone hole in it, I am thankful they found the hole before they glued it on. If they glued it on & then it was discovered later, they could have blamed ME for the damage to the crown. & it would have crumbled later down the road. So yes, I'm thankful that it was discovered early.
170 // Soooo ... that dumb UTI? It still has a hold on me. But luckily, The Little Clinic I went to sent out another prescription - this time a 10 day supply instead of a 3 day supply - which that is one of the things I'm thankful for - but also because my sweet hubby stopped on his way home from work to pick it up for me.
173 // Precious words. Ricky always calls me on his way home from work but he called me last week & when I answered the phone, he just gave me the sweetest greeting & precious words that brought tears to my eyes. I even told him, I think that's the sweetest thing you've ever told me.
174 // Sold my first knitting piece!!! When I posted my cowl I made last week, I got a message asking if I was selling it. I have been wanting to get an Etsy store going & this has just been the push I needed. So I did indeed sell it & even got my Etsy logo going.
(Though I am now rethinking my name & logo because what if I want to incorporate my photography on there? Anyone have any witty Etsy names?)
176 // 40 cents off gas!
179 // Already talked about this on Tuesday - but my NON STOP 5k! I am still so thankful that this old body could do something new!
181 // Ricky & I had the BEST TIME after the race. Stopping at Panera, Starbucks, Hobby Lobby, enjoying the weather. It was just a great day.
183 // Tried new church. It's been really interesting getting out & seeing the dynamics of other churches in the area.
186 // Movie Night with Ricky. He's so funny watching suspenseful movies & The Martian was no exception. He's also so good to me when Harvey was bothering me so much, he made Harvey go upstairs.... & then when we didn't hear from Harvey for about 30 minutes, Ricky went up to check on him for me because I was worried something was wrong. #IcanBeAPain
187 // Run outside kinda evening.
189 // Random "I Love You"s ... for no reason... just out of the blue
190 // Love a few of the race pictures that the race photographers got of Ricky & I. Just us. There is one that I love - I probably won't show it because I hate my profile & get so aggravated about a certain area of my body... I know, I know... but they got a picture of Ricky & I just looking at each other smiling the biggest smiles. It's the most real smile I've ever seen a picture of me doing. I may have to order it for my own viewing pleasure. Happy memories.
192 // Ricky went out late in the cold, snowy rain to get some Benadryl for Bruno. His skin has been acting up again & he's been so jerky & twitchy with it, he can't even rest or sleep. So Ricky ran down to get some Benadryl to help him... & Bruno slept like a baby all night long.
What are some good things that has happened to you this week?
