In a nutshell, I’m thankful for all the supportive friendships I have in my life. More than one has played out in a grand fashion this week, and I am well aware that I am blessed.
Y’all saw the lovely blankie Gmarie sent to save me from myself. It allowed me to give a promised gift to a family, without hand pain or the guilt that I think a lot of us have when we realize a craft project isn’t working out.
Many of you know that I’m on an uphill climb to regain the fitness I took for granted earlier in my life. It’s hard to go from power lifting firefighter to an out of shape bookkeeper. Again, I’m blessed with supportive, kind friends. A local, blogless friend also struggles with proper nutrition, also needs a higher protein diet, not that you’d know it to look at her.
Both of us have tried – and tried – to catch the Greek yogurt wave, but we were stopped by the strong, chalky taste. I didn’t doubt her but headed to the grocery store when she told me she’d FINALLY found a creamy, tasty Greek yogurt. Dannon does Greek yogurt a little differently. My friend swears by the honey and vanilla, while I was forced to try the strawberry and blueberry, because that’s all that I saw on the shelf. If you see me in the store this weekend, don’t get between me and the Dannon Greek; I’ll be stocking up and making it my go-to breakfast with some granola sprinkled on top.
Of course, what would Thankful Thursday be without mentioning my new wheel?! It’s a Majacraft tradition to sign the base of each wheel and number it. Owen is the husband half of the owner team, and that four on the end? Not that there was any doubt, but 4 has been my favorite number since I started playing sports and wearing uniforms. My first track jersey made me #14, and the rest is history.
I’m also thankful for each of you, even those lurkers who swing by and I don’t even know your names. I started blogging just because I wanted to swap and it was a requirement, but now, some of the women I chat with most came into my life through blogging!
