This week I am thankful for:
... for the holidays with all our family
... Christmas with our doggies too.
... that our dogs were safe while we traveled to Nashville
.... that my step daughter fed into my love of Beauty & the Beast!!!
... for work letting us off early on Christmas Eve
... my hubs who spoils me every Christmas
|... that blanket! I'm so thankful for a warm cozy fluffy blanket!
... So loving this warm weather & not needing a coat or really anything warm, while traveling for Christmas. Even driving with the windows down this weekend.. in December! Loved it so much!
... for a Christmas celebration still to come this weekend. ... (Would you laugh if you knew I was STILL wrapping gifts?)
.... for another Christmas with Bruno. This was his 14th Christmas... he's such an old man & I after loosing Sydney & Buffy, we appreciate each one we get with our older dogs.
.... for a sweet friend who surprised me with a Starbucks cup & a handmade card & a special note. This meant the world to me when it showed up so unexpectantly on my front porch.
|I've threatened Ricky's life if he touches my cup... I do it out of love
... for friend's sense of humor. The last family in the wedding I just did, they said that Chasity & I are just part of their family now, so when they put up their Christmas jammie picture, I couldn't resist to Photoshop me & Chasity in... haha... I told them every time they put a family picture up, I'm totally photoshopping us in... If you see the hashtag #wantobeadoebler trending - you get it now :)
... Getting to start using my Erin Condren planner for 2016
... for free Starbucks drinks on your birthday! ... I had the sweetest barrista too. She said, "oh this is for your birthday?" & she handed to me in like a presentation type style & said, 'You have a Happy Birthday" with the sweetest smile. It really did make my morning.
... for all the kind & thoughtful messages I received on my birthday. Say what you will about Facebook, but it makes you feel special on your birthday... & all the texts I received & phone calls? I appreciate you ALL that took the time to send me some good birthday wishes.
... made it a full year of doing Thankful Thursday posts. I have loved seeing the joy in life every week so I'm going to continue it into 2016... love to see others join me in the link up.
... excited to go through our Gratitude Jar tonight & look back over the things we're thankful for...
... & thankful to start a new empty jar that we expect to be full of gratitude in 2016
... More then anything, I'm thankful for another year... every DAY is a gift, so 365 gifts in a year? Yes... MUCH to be THANKFUL FOR in that alone...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
