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 :)

I certainly want to hear more about #5!! :-) And yes, isn't it fun to have a little more financial ability to share with those you love? I know that I enjoy that. And finally, credit card rewards points are.the.bomb! Loved your list, hope you do it again, and I'm sharing the link to it on my Busy Nothings FB page! Keep it up! :-) Blessings!!

I'm a fan! Love the things you're thankful for. Sometimes its nice to write them down in order to really see the significance they have in your life. Can't wait to read future posts of more things you're thankful for!
