Happy Thorsday, little friday, and thankful Thursday. Gretchen’s post hints at the week we’ve had. The Knight and I were looking forward to a relaxing week with almost no evening meetings, but it just wasn’t in the cards. I’ve found that when it’s harder to count my blessings, that’s actually when I really do have the most to be thankful for!
I’m thankful for flowers and other pretty things to make life sparkle. I’m thankful for the new friends and the deepened friendships this almost-over League year has yielded. I’m thankful for the excitement of new partnerships and opportunities.
I’m thankful the electrical damages weren’t any worse than they were. I’m thankful the surge protectors worked. I’m thankful we found the refrigerator we wanted, in the color we wanted, in stock last night. I’m thankful we could afford it, even though I still twitch when I think about what it cost. I’m thankful for our friend, our insurance lady, even when she doesn’t say the words we wanted to hear. I’m thankful that the claim we couldn’t file means that our insurance – in theory – won’t be going up, nor will we be getting a letter that would upset me tremendously because this would have been our umpteenth electrical-related claim in X number of years.
I’m thankful for our sweet little house in the woods that has survived countless storms of all sorts. I’m thankful for the Knight, even if he does keep putting my wine bottle behind the milk in the new fridge. I’m thankful for the faithful fur-girls, who still love me even though I don’t have a good plan for walking now that we’re suddenly in the thick of summer with awful heat and humidity.
What are you thankful for today?
