I’m a little behind here so I’m covering the whole week with one post.
Sunday – November 4
I am grateful for fall, warm soup and football.
Monday – November 5
I am grateful for a job that doesn’t make me want to throw up before I go to work every morning. In fact, I love going to work everyday. How many people do you know that can say that?
Tuesday – November 6
I’m grateful that I live in a country that allows me the freedom to speak my mind, vote my mind, and be present while the peaceful exchange of power takes place. Democracy rocks! (Okay…I know we’re a republic but “Republicacy Rocks!” just doesn’t have the same ring.)
Wednesday – November 7
I am grateful for my niece who turned 30 on 11/7. She drives me insane and is way too much like her mother for my taste, but I love her where she is and she knows that.
Thursday – November 8
I am grateful that I’m friends with an old boss who drove me batshit (and vice versa) while she was my boss. Now we’re friends and we do what so many friends do not – we make time to see each other and catch up anytime she’s in town. I love that…and her.
And I’m grateful for a husband who brings me flowers from the grocery store simply because he knows how much I love fresh flowers in the house.
Friday – November 9
I’m grateful that my 17 year old son, who will drive to an away, playoff football game tonight (2.5 hours away), is a good driver and has a passenger that I think is mature and responsible. He will be following the bus and I know that God will deliver him safely home to me. But I won’t sleep or stop worrying until he’s home and tucked in tight.
Some things never change.
Happy Friday everyone!
