1. I'm thankful that I spotted a Girl Scout selling cookies on the street corner last weekend. Every year I order a huge supply of Girl Scout cookies from my nieces. This year when they came by to sell the cookies, I wasn't home. For some completely incomprehensible reason, my hubby only ordered 3 boxes. 3 boxes! What was he thinking? There are four of us in the house. We all LOVE girl scout cookies. They are only available once a year. Three boxes! Really? So needless to say I swooped down on the poor unsuspecting Girl Scout and cleaned her out!
2. I'm thankful that I have finally found a good meeting place for my book club, Chapter Chat. We have been struggling with this for almost a year. Every place we tried was either too noisy, went out of business or the service was too s-l-o-w. Now we meet in a restaurant with a private room where we can control the lighting, and the music, it's quiet and the food is good. What more can ask for?
3. Contrary to the impression left by my last post, I am thankful for my wonderful husband (even if he didn't buy enough cookies). Geoff is a really great guy. He is kind, gentle, hardworking and dedicated to me and our daughters. No one could ask for a better husband. So, now the question is, why does he put up with me? I'm not really sure, but I'm eternally grateful!
It really does feel great to take even a couple of minutes once a week to think about all that has gone right in the last week. It' so refreshing to stop thinking about all the blunders and aggravations and focus on the positive. I wonder why it's more automatic to focus on the negative? Is it just me? Hmmm.... Something to think about.
