Thankful Thursday: On Friday!

I am thankful this week, but I'm a day late on relaying it to the outside world...
  1. I was evaluated this week by my superiors. I am so thankful for this process and opportunity to become a better educator as advised by my two direct superiors. The evaluation occurred on Tuesday and I just had my debriefing this morning. I respect my superiors and I was the first director they evaluated so it was a very open process full of "reinforcement" and "refinement" opportunities. Proverbs 9:8 says, "Do not rebuke a mocker or he will hate you; rebuke a wise man and he will love you." I want to be a wise child of God and I want correction when available.
  2. This is so incredibly silly, but I am thankful for the new GOOGLE image my computer has shown me every time I've done a google search this week. Somehow, I became a part of the Sesame Street Google partnership and I'm LOVING it! Earlier in the week, my google L and E were made from Big Bird's legs, and now Bert and Ernie are my Os. This has made me stop and smile every time I've seen it this week. Thank you Google for rekindling my fond memories of Sesame Street. Here's a fun and random fact about me: When I got home from preschool and kindergarten when I was a child, I would watch Sesame Street and the Cosby Show. That was my afternoon pair. :)
  3. Okay, this next one is REALLY off the wall. I am thankful for the cough I've managed to pick up. I know, why should I be thankful for a cough? It's totally nutty -- maybe it's more than a cough and I should have my head examined, but seriously, I am thankful for this cough. I take for granted how easily I usually breathe, talk, laugh and sing. This has not been the case for the past 36 hours and it has made me so grateful for how healthy I usually am. Also, I've had to take inventory of how much I talk during the day, and speak more quietly and only when necessary. Now, I sincerely hope and pray that my mild cough stays exactly that, a mild cough, but in the meantime, I'm trying to drink plenty of liquids, get plenty of rest and focus on being thankful.
  4. I am so thankful for my roommates. This comes to mind because it was one of my roommates who passed along the cough, but I LOVE my roommates regardless of germs! It is not like we are best friends or even consistently hanging out, but I love living with other Godly women. I'm racking my brain for some story to tell or something fun to share about our being roommates, but I'm coming up short. Today it's not funny or fancy, it simply is: I am so blessed to have "Mae and Jay" as my two roommates.
  5. I am thankful for a date night with Paul and even more thankful I am going to see him next weekend. Tonight was are watching Star Wars Episode V. Two weeks ago we watched Episode IV, and tonight we just finished V. I had never seen any of Star Wars until two weeks ago when Paul and I watched IV. We've just finished V, and I've insisted that we watch VI tonight because I don't want to go to bed until I see the end. Paul has had fun watching me enjoy Star Wars for the first time. Yoda was adorable but I think Chewy is my favorite of the crazy creatures. For those of you remembering that Paul and I live 1300 miles away, you may be wondering how we watch movies together - we video chat and press play at the same time. Welcome to the future and to a very real reality of our "virtual" dates.

  1. What a beautiful list of things to be thankful for!

    I am so with you on the Sesame Street and The Cosby Show! Did you know all Google images will be SS characters for at least a week as they celebrate their 40th birthday?! You'll have many more days to enjoy the characters!!
