Thankful Thursday



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. Geoff made reservations and took me out for dinner after I had to work all day on Saturday. What made it even more special is that he chose a restaurant that neither one of us had been to. And it was a little bit fancy. Geoff gets to eat at lots of new and interesting restaurants as part of his job and sometimes when we go to a "new" place together, it turns out he's already been there. Hmmph! I always feel a little bad about that. So, the fact that he picked a nice place that was new to both of us was very sweet and thoughtful. And since both girls had plans, we got to have a nice dinner just two of us. It was practically a date!

2. I'm so thankful that I have been on an amazing book roll lately. It's such a joy to me to read books that speak to me in some way. Usually I read lots of OK books and an occasional great book. The last 3 books I've read have been amazing. What a gift!

3. I'm grateful that I've finally back to getting some exercise. Lately I've been very unmotivated and haven't been to Curves in weeks! But, I have been taking walks for the last couple of days and I think maybe I've broken out of my exercise slump. I sure hope so. The scale has been slowly inching up! YIKES! Pearl, my dog, is grateful too!

This week I had a little trouble thinking of things to be grateful for. Not sure why. It was a relatively calm and peaceful week. I wonder if that has something to do with it. Hey, that's something to be thankful for right there. How about you? What are you grateful for this week?

And I'm thankful you're finding some great books, too! Saves me from having to find my own.

I have weeks where I feel I'm repetitive in my thankful posts,and where I'm searching for what to be thankful for....it's odd, because I really do lead a charmed life.......it's amazing, well except for the teens that live in my house...LOL.
A date night is a special treat, good for the two of you.

Valentine - It's always nice to see friends that we don't get to see very often. And, yes, good books are one of the true joys in (my) life. As Thomas Jefferson said, "I can not live without books". I hear ya, Tommy!
