This week I am Thankful for:
(The numbers refer to my journal for the One-Thousand Gifts... in other words, just ignore them)
325 / Vertigo medicine left over. Whew. I was so dizzy last week that I thought I was going to DIE. I couldn't get things to stop spinning for ANYTHING. I had to hang onto walls to walk from place to place. I felt like I was on a ride from Hades. Luckily, I have some extra pills my doc gave me from my last episode of it & I took one & it helped me make it through that little spell. I hope this doesn't happen often. I'm going to have to keep these pills near me at all times apparently.
327 / Nothing to do when I'm sick. I have to say, I dont know how you moms do it. On days I dont feel good (having that vertigo) I am reminded that I have it easier than you moms that have to take care of kids even when you feel bad. I get to tell my dogs to hold on, lay down in their bed & toss them a bone & I'm good for a few hours. While it makes me a heart broken 99% of the time that I never had children of my own, these 1% days where I'm glad I can come home & crawl in bed with no responsibility, I'm thankful.
328 / Seeing my niece play tennis. I have said it many times here before - I don't get into watching or caring about most sports. Basketball? Nope. Baseball? Could care less. Football? Just give me a half time show for the Super Bowl is all I know... but tennis? I'm ALL ABOUT! I love playing it, love watching it... & now, I'm excited my niece is getting into it. She's not the kind of kid who takes discouragement well so I thought she may give it up if she didn't match up well with others - but she really likes it & is sticking with it... & has a REALLY good back hand too! I'm excited to see her progress in it!
329 / Ice packs for my knee. Thank you baby Jesus.
331 / Taxes done for the year!
332 / Ricky's lost phone found. I mentioned this on Monday & told you it would be on the list. So glad he found it & no one walked off with it in the tax office.
333 / Time to OPEN THE WINDOWS! I love when I can open my windows & my back porch door & just let all
334 / Ricky got our garage clean. Like CLEAN CLEAN. Like I would have a picnic on the floor in there. Like, I dont have to fear for my life anything is going to fall over on my car as I drive in!
336 / Got to see some of my aunts. I could listen to their stories all day long.
338 / Started our new adventure in middle school ministry at our new church. I think the Middle School Minister there is just fantastic. & I got to meet his wife & their new baby. She is all sorts of adorable too. Can't wait to get to know them & the whole MSM team better.
339 / Familiar youth faces. It made it so much better being in a HUGE room full of middle school kids & look up & see some faces from our last church. It just instantly makes you feel more comfortable to see faces you know & love.
340 / Got to do Grand buddy #2 pictures. & he was a perfect baby. Seriously. Perfect.
341 / Spending time with Emerson. Usually when I'm around Emerson, she's surrounded by people she loves & that loves her. So it was great getting to spend some one on one time with her this past Sunday.
Check her out singing "Do you want to build a snowman"... ALL THE CUTENESS!!!
342 / Good health news for my daddy. My dad has been having some chest/heart issues & had some tests done the past week... & the results came back in & its nothing serious. Whew! So thankful for that one.
344 / Watching the Boston Marathon from work. ... & ever since that tragic bombing, I'm always thankful now when the event is pulled off safely.
347 / Sitting outside finishing up reading a book. Just note - any time I get the time & the weather to do this, it'll be on my Thankful list. I love being outside with a book. I will say, I have a hard time going on my front porch in my rocker & reading since I lost Sydney. She was my partner in that reading spot. Oh mercy - how I miss her.
So what are you THANKFUL for this week?
