A thankful list with letters – because why not?
A. A while back I lost one of a pair of turtle earrings that matches a turtle necklace. It was one of my favorite sets of costume jewelry and I was so bummed. I refused to get rid of the remaining earring in the hope that one day, the missing turtle earring would reappear. Lo and behold, the other night Elayna moved something in my bedroom and there was my turtle earring! SOOO thankful!
B. I am truly thankful for thrifting. I have scored some awesome stuff lately (including the outfit I wore to Shelbie’s graduation and blogged about Thursday). I’m going to blog next Thursday about some beautiful creations that I am making with thrifted materials.
C. I mentioned last weekend that the air conditioner at home stopped working. What I didn’t mention is that just a couple of days prior to that, the a/c in the truck stopped working! I was driving down the road and the a/c was happily blasting away – until it wasn’t. The fan just abruptly stopped. Thankfully, it was also a simple, inexpensive fix.
D. My favorite type of food, after good old Southern home cooking, is Mexican food. My husband is super picky about what he eats. Actually, it’s mostly in his head; if I can convince him to try something he usually likes it, but he’s very reluctant to try new things. ANYWAY, much to my surprise and delight, he agreed to go to a Mexican restaurant on Friday night! AND I had the most delicious chimichanga I have had in many, many years. He also enjoyed his meal. Thankful for a willing husband and fantastic food!
E. OMGosh. Thankful for Sonic Salt Caramel Milkshakes. OMGosh OMGosh OMGosh.
F. I’ve had a cold this week and have nearly lost my voice. Pretty sure my family is thankful that they get a break from listening to me. Heh.
G. Saturday night we are having a graduation party for Shelbie and Tyler. It’s a pool party. Today, while I was helping my MIL out around her house, she had a problem with her pool filter. I took it to the pool place for her and at first, they told me the part would have to be ordered and wouldn’t be in until Monday. Which would’ve meant no swimming. THANKFULLY, they were wrong about the problem and it was a super-easy fix and is now back to working properly.
H. I am so thankful that it is SUMMERTIME. I love it! I love the hot weather, swimming, suntans, the activities, the extra time with my kids….it’s the best.
I. This past week, Elayna had band camp for three days. It was a day camp and she had to be dropped off in the morning two of the three days, then picked up in the evening. The times were difficult for me because of my work schedule, so both my mom and my mother-in-law pitched in and helped out with dropoff and pickup. I’m thankful for their ability and willingness to help out.
J. I’m also thankful that my mother-in-law is so good to my kids. She has totally accepted and embraced them as her own. She’s so good to them – and me!
Okay – your turn! Go forth and be thankful!
