Thankful Thursday

Forever Thankful for My Lucy!!!

Ok, Linn has once again given me something to think about...being thankful. I do tend to complain a bit...such as my hatred for cleaning the bathrooms, but I guess I justify it by realizing that the dirt and grime are part of the curse, which was caused by sin entering the world, right? So really I'm complaining about sin and that's ok. Are ya with me?? Ok, so that's a bit of a stretch...I certainly am thankful for having the ability to clean my bathrooms even though I use that ability as seldom as possible.

So here is my Top Ten list of things I'm thankful for on this Thursday:

1. Coffee (it's God's way of saying, "Girlfriend, here is a little something special I made to jumpstart your day!") Woot woot!!
2. Sweatshirts (particularily those that can disguise the fact that I'm not wearing a bra)
3. Computers (blogging by mail would be oh-so-frustrating...I think that's called a Round Robin which my Mom used to do with family members...she was a blogger way before it was super cool)
4. Hot showers (seriously now, this is huge for me when I consider the fact that there are women somewhere in the world bathing in a cold river...oh thank you Jesus for spoiling me with hot running water!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
5. Snail Mail (I kid you not, I go to the mailbox each day with giddy anticipation as if that million dollar check might finally be here!!)
6. Washer & Dryer (I really can't see myself with a washboard & a pile of dirty clothes...I just wouldn't do the laundry)
7. Freshly vacuumed carpet (the lines that remain give me a high like nothing else)
8. Pink fuzzy bath robe (putting it on at the end of the day always makes me squeal with delight...just ask my family, they roll their eyes everytime)
9. Glider rocking chair (which is where I get all cozy-like as I'm blogging, emailing, family calls it my "perch")
10. Pine & Bamboo Chinese Restaurant (our favorite place to eat's about 40 minutes from our house but worth the drive....and I'm craving it big time right at this very moment)

Ok, that's that. It really does boost your mood big time when you really focus on the wonderful blessings in your life. :)

Okay, so you said Pine and Bamboo "is worth the drive"...but is it worth the drive from MY house? Hmmm, think on that one for a bit...Love you sweet friend!!
