Wow, Thursday already!? YIKES! I'm having trouble immediately thinking of even three things I'm thankful for. Complaints? No problem. I've got a laundry list. Just ask my workout buddy, Amy, she's heard a litany this week. But, I'm not giving up. The whole point of Thankful Thursday is to accentuate the positive, since that is obviously not my natural inclination. So here goes...
1. I'm thankful that I have Book Club tonight for a variety of reasons. First, I like Book Club. Second, I don't have to make dinner! And third, it's a great opportunity to see some friends I wouldn't otherwise see very often. So, in the words of Michael Scott, it's a win-win-win. (If you don't get this reference, you are not watching enough of The Office. Shame on you!)
2. I'm thankful that I'm getting an allergy shot this afternoon. I know this may seem like a weird thing to be happy about, but not suffering from allergy symptoms is definitely something to be thankful for. I will gladly get my shots every other week (for the rest of my life, if necessary) if it means I won't want to scratch my eyes out from March to June.
3. I'm thankful for the crazy busy but oh-so-fun day I spent with my friends on Tuesday. First it was a shopping extravaganza with Margaret. Very successful, I might add. Then an all-too quick cup of tea and great conversation with Diane and then a rousing game of Mah Jong with Amy, Jaime and Sabina. Phew! Did I say crazy and busy. Yeah, it was that. But what a joy! Girlfriends are definitely something to be thankful for.
4. And last but certainly not least. I am thankful for the the fabulous pair of red patent leather, peep toe pumps I bought while shopping with Margaret. I really have no place to wear them, but they were affordable and adorable and every girl simply must have a pair of red shoes. So, I think I'll just wear them to work. It's not everyday you see a Assistant Librarian in red peep toe pumps ;)
Once again, if I just sit down and think about it, I can always find lots of things to be thankful for. Now if only I could learn to focus on those things rather than the complaints. How about you? What good things happened to you this week?
