I'm Thankful...

My friend Carrie does a weekly post of 10 things she is thankful for. I have admired this concept for a long time as I like the idea of pausing each week to remember that there are always things to be thankful for. It is a good reminder that even the bad weeks have bright spots. I'm not sure that this will be a weekly post on my blog, but perhaps at least a monthly thing, but this week I'm feeling very thankful so I thought I would put up my own list. Here goes!

  1. Friends that stick by my side when times are tough.
  2. A good report at the doctor today.
  3. A random day off taken kind of last minute to catch my breath from the busyness of life.
  4. The ability to pick up a few extra shifts in the Pediatric ER, which means extra income for some upcoming expenses and getting to take care of sweet little kiddos. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the pediatric population.
  5. This pretty great guy that I've become quite smitten with (more to come on this really, I promise).
  6. The financial freedom to occasionally spoil people that mean a lot to me with unexpected gifts. 
  7. Mexican food and a chance to catch up with a friend.
  8. The reminder that though life sometimes throws unexpected things our way, God has a plan and it is under control.
  9. Spring like weather and sunshine. 
  10. Credit card points that get redeemed for Starbucks gift cards :)
