Today I am Thankful for:
(The numbers refer to my journal for the One-Thousand Gifts... in other words, just ignore them)
264 / Survived the dentist! I went to get my 2 crowns on - & after the last fiasco where they got my teeth prepped only to have a STINKIN' HOLE in them, & having to come back - I was a nervous wreck. & they told me it would only take an hour to get it on. Do you know I sat in that dentist chair for a little over 3 HOURS!!!! I had so many issues & problems & it almost became comical. Needless to say, when I finished, the dentist even said, "We're not even going to schedule you for anything soon because I know you need a break from us"... amen sister... amen!
265 / Praying friends. I love my JOY Ladies were praying for me during my dentist trip & checked in with me afterwards to see how it all went.
266 / Free flowers from work! We deliver for a big floral department in town & when there are big flower holidays, there is usually some left over & they let us have them. They spruced up my living room beautifully for Easter
267 / Ricky emptied the dishwasher. Y'all!!! I seriously opened it up, expecting it to be full & ready to put everything up & when I saw he had done it, I stood there for I know a good 2 minutes totally stunned. It's just not his thang. I was so thrilled to have it done for me. I do have a Love Language of action so that just spoke to my heart more than anything.
000 / Spring weather where I can wear my favorite things - knitted things AND flip flops. That time of year where its still cool in the morning & evening, but warm in the afternoon. I am happiest when I can wear knitted cowls & my Old Navy flip flops & be perfectly comfortable
268 / Beautiful day for the 10 mile race. The sun was out the entire time & just made it so lovely to run through a park.
270 / Beat my goal for the race.
272 / Warm showers when I'm freezing with sweat after a run. It really is the simple things in life. I think of how many people in this world dont have water - much less WARM WATER - to enjoy. It really is a blessing we over look.
273 / EASTER!!! I love Easter! I love everyone worshiping our Risen Savior together. We do every week at church, but Easter just is full of emotion & celebration!
274 / Joined a new church. I'm so excited to get back into being involved in a church & serving in any way I can.
276 / Being with Ricky on Easter. He really is my world.
278 / New book in the mail to preview/review. I had just finished the last book I was reading when Ricky brought in the mail & there was a brand new book just for me to check out. I love Annie Downs anyways so I'm thrilled I get to see this book before its released to the public.
280 / Edamame on the salad bar. I honestly get WAYYY too excited when I see edamame out for salads!
282 / Didn't gain weight this week. I was on a HUNGER FEST after my 10 mile run Saturday... like seriously want to eat ALL THE THINGS. I thought for sure my weight would be up this week. It didn't go down - but it didn't go up. I'll take it.
000 / Love these sorts of healthy frozen goodies that makes dinner fast & easy. I made this & put in some extra feta & wish I had another tomato to cut up & put in there. But it was delicious just as is.
283 / Nice Policeman. I actually got pulled over Wednesday morning. I knew I wasn't speeding so I was confused when the lights went off behind me. But the policeman wanted to check my license & registration because apparently, someone TOOK MY REGISTRATION STICKER OFF MY CAR!!!! UGHHHH! Really people? ... all was OK. But the young policeman was so kind & polite & he even apologized if he made me late for work pulling me over. I've had to deal with some pretty jerky cops before, so it was nice to see such a young one that was so polite. I actually prayed for him the rest of the way into work for his safety in his career.
So what's been good in your world this week?
