Ten things of thankful. Ten things I am thankful for this week. How in the world will I choose? It has been a spectacular week. How about some of the more everyday things that I am thankful for.Reading all these posts on #1000speak I just keep coming back to how blessed I am.
Thankful for: a bit of free time which I was able to get some guilt free cleaning done while the kid was entertained.
I got off work Monday earlier than expected. While I still had some energy I went home to restore some order to my house. It felt really good to see my floors again.
Thankful for: A husband that works so hard for us and still manages to surprise me with flowers and chocolate!
I mean really does that need any explanation.
Thankful for : Booking and paying for our vacation.
This year we were able to get even more of a package that means even less planning and worrying for us.We are, of course, going to Disney World. We will be camping as we have the past two years. The thing is, this year I think I can make it on just Ultracur and over the counter tylenol. No scripts at all. No Lortab. No Soma.
Thankful for : 1000 voices of compassion
There have been so many wonderful post.Ones that have really made me think. I am determined to get through all of them.
Thankful for : Reuniting with a friend I had lost touch with.
Well we are facebook friends but it was nice to get a nice in person visit. We worked together way back before I got diagnosed with anything. It was so good to see her and catch up.
Thankful for : the trust some friends have in me.
This week I have just really been humbled with what my friends trust me with. Probably all that reading of 1000 speak.
Thankful for: a hammock and knowing when I need to go out to it.
I can’t even tell you how much enjoyment I get out of it. I am still able to rest. I am still able to read. I am still able to immerse myself in nature. All these combined equals near bliss.
Thankful for: being able to appreciate the small things.
Catching up with that friend and reading the 1000 voices of compassion posts, I realize how much of a talent that is. To be able to enjoy the sunsets, the way the light plays with the trees, seeing the beauty even in a storm. I just never thought of it as a talent until this week.
Thankful for: my bed.
Let’s state the obvious first, some people don’t have beds. Some people have a love affair with their couch. Me-when I need to rest, its only my bed. It is my sanctuary. I am comfortable just long enough to get the rest I need and then I need to get up.I am pretty sure if it was more comfortable I would never leave it so this is a good thing that its not quite perfect.
Thankful for: food.
Yeah that whole appreciate the small things….some of that this week has been food. Emotional eating whatever, I craved cheeseburgers this week I gave in twice and man that first bite……stress gone…poof.
And That is that.
Now tell me what you are thankful for……
