30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 9

November 9 - Thankful it didnt RAIN!!!!!

So... I'm apparently on a streak of just bad luck... which has been an adventure in trying to find things to be thankful in the midst of it all.

I'm driving home yesterday.

Had some gum in my mouth that had about expired its chewiness-limit ... there is such a thing & I know you all know what I'm talking about.  When it feels like you're chewing a hard rock that has the flavor of nothingness.

I went to throw out my gum... driving on the express way at 55 mph.

I roll down my window & throw it out & then roll up my window... simple enough...

but wait... its freezing cold all of a sudden.

I took over & see nothing but a corner of my window stucking up from the door on my drivers side.


That was the weirdest feeling ever trying to figure out what just happened. 

Where did my window go?  It defintely wasnt where it should be... as in UP in my doorway.

I literally just laughed till I had tears coming out of my eyes at the luck I've been having lately.  I guess it's what you call a "mental snap"?

But it had been raining all day long & the clouds were still grey & looking like it could pour any minute.

But it didnt... & that's what I'm thankful for.  Because I could see me driving with no window down (already in the 50 degree temps) & then rain pouring in on me too...

That didnt happen... & believe me - right now, I'm thankful for ALL the small things... it seems to be what I need to focus on lately.


  1. Why are you throwing you gum out of the car anyway? Is this your revenge on the highway because of the bridge being down?
    Fred thinks I'm nuts because I swallow my gum.
    Sorry about your luck, you big litter-bug.

  2. Oh my word. That happened to me in my old van...window just fell right into my door. Joe was able to rig it back up, but then it was a non-functioning window for the rest of the time we owned it. Hoping for an easier fix for yours!

    And yes, thank goodness it didn't rain!

  3. Isn't it interesting how at any other time of year you might not have even thought to be thankful for such a thing? I love it when we find blessings in the smallest or maybe that was a big part of our day. After all, had it rained at that moment the damage could have been much greater and your health driving safety could have been put at greater risk.

  4. In everything give thanks to the Lord. Oh, and stop spitting your gum out the window.
