Thankful Thursday

  1. I am thankful for a job where I feel needed. I'm working very hard to turn these feelings into thanksgiving, because they stem from a frustrated, "Nothing gets done if I don't do it myself." I know this feeling is not true, but I do feel very needed at my job and for that I am thankful.
  2. I am thankful that I am feeling better. I was sick all weekend and home sick on Monday (my first sick day on the job). Even the days I've been back to work, I've felt exhausted and drained. I am thankful that this ailment seems to have been temporary and I'm prayerful for those terminally ill.
  3. I am thankful that the Lord keeps me in prayer. This, like my first thanks is a thankfulness I am still working on. I will share more details when things are more final... but I am still in prayer... even when doors appear to be open, I must remain in prayer... when doors appear to be closed, I must remain in prayer. I know it is the best place to be, the safest place to be... I am thankful the the Lord keeps me here.
  4. I am SOOOO thankful tomorrow is Friday. And Friday the 13th at that! I am taking the day off work to fly to Texas for a friend's wedding. It is Paul's 25th birthday! He is flying to Texas for my friend's wedding! We haven't seen each other in what feels like FOREVER... really, it's about five weeks. Much too long, that's for sure.
  5. I am thankful for all the loved ones I get to see in Texas this weekend! My best friend from college lives in Austin, so we're meeting for lunch in Waco. One of my best friends from Vanderbilt lives in Dallas, so he is housing Paul and me for the weekend. Then, of course, a friend of mine is getting married, so I'll get to celebrate with him and see all of our college friends are the wedding!
  6. I know the rule is supposed to be five, but I am thankful for the Country Music Awards! So silly, and yet so enjoyable each year. It's the only awards show I watch and I LOVE this one. I lived in Nashville before I moved to Colorado, and my years in Nashville really helped me to love this event. I even attended the show last year and it was amazing. I cried multiple times... sometimes even at the memory. I think Country is one of the few genres left that really does honor God, Family and Country. Thank you to America's Country artists who keep it real and pour out their hearts and emotions in beautiful music.
