Today I am thankful that it is Thursday. I am thankful that tomorrow is Friday. I am also thankful that I am taking a half day at work tomorrow. I am thankful that we are headed to Birmingham for the weekend for a family reunion and my college BFF’s wedding on Saturday. I am thankful to have a friend who I can fall right back into familiarity with even if we don’t get to talk or see each other as much as I would like. I am thankful that she has found love with a wonderful man who adores her and keeps her in check. I wish them a long and happy life together. I am thankful that we will get to be with family this weekend and have some fun at the lake. I need some down time to decompress and regroup for the next week. So does the Mister. He has been extremely busy with work, and a weekend of fun in the sun will do him good.
This entry is very disjointed, I know. But I have gotten out of the habit of doing these Thursday posts, and I really need to remember to do them so I can sit for a few minutes and focus on the things I’m thankful for. It’s so easy to lose sight of our many blessings in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. I feel like I never get a chance to just be anymore. Be present with my husband. Be present with my child. Be alone with my thoughts. It’s good to dwell on the good things in my life when I feel myself getting bogged down in the everyday.
