Thankful Thursdays are all about taking the time to appreciate all the little things that actually went right during the week. I am someone who can get flustered very easily even when the smallest thing goes wrong. So why not focus on all the little things that went right and be grateful?
1. I am thankful that on Sunday my husband took my car to the car wash and then came home and waxed it. Now, this is something to be thankful for no matter what, but in 21+ years of marriage my husband has NEVER washed and/or waxed my car! Not sure why he did it this week, but I sure do appreciate it. What are the odds I can get him to do again?
2. I am thankful that I was able to make my kids lunches this week. Even if they are old enough to do it themselves. If you wondering why I would be thankful for this, you are obviously not reading my blog often enough (LOL) and can read more about it here.
3. I am so thankful that my 14 year old daughter, Madeleine, was willing to spend 3 hours on Saturday helping me sort donated books for the library's book sale. I do this on a (mostly) volunteer basis and you would be surprised by how many books get donated to the library. They all need to be sorted and shelved and it's a big and dirty job. Madeleine is a wonderful organizer, a hard worker and extremely uncomplaining. And all I promised her in return was two hot wieners and some french fries. Yummy!
4. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Alex for linking to me on her terrific blog, Please Try Again. How cool is that?! I'm pretty new to blogging but I think getting linked on someone's blog is pretty much blog Nirvana (at least that's how I'm choosing to look at it). So come on everyone, go check out Alex's blog. You won't be disappointed.
See that! I am a lucky, lucky woman. So many little things to be grateful for. How about you? What good things happened to you this week?
