Thursday...Time to Be Thankful

It's Thursday - you know what that means... Thankful Thursday.

I really enjoy being faithful to doing these every Thursday - it's a great reminder that I truly do have so much to be thankful for - no matter what circumstance I'm in. Our God is so good to us - He really is.

I am thankful for...

-All of the love, support, kindness, and warmth you all showed me yesterday. I really needed that. You followers are so amazing - you melted my heart when I really needed it. (Special thank you to my amazing friend Stace for the support + love and my sweet friend Vicki for her reminding me of Rainbow Bridge + being there) Boardie love! ...thanks to the very sweet Jeanne for the e-mail of the poem, as well. <3

-The beautiful Maddie at Sweet Tea (Jesus) + Me for the amazing giveaway that I won! I was blessed with being able to receive a devotional - perfect time, I need a new one. Thank you again, doll face! And if you haven't, check out her blog - she is such a sweetheart that is full of such love.

-Tuesday, I did abs with a body builder who I am friends with. I was able to keep up with him! He's done two shows in the past three months and is in training mode for a third next month. I was so proud of myself!

-Saving about $12 when I did my shopping at Publix this week. I know - no where near where I could be - but still happy with that!

-Finding my new favorite snack! -Pepperidge Farm Baked Cracker Chips. Oh. My. Goodness. You have no idea how delicious they are. And- healthy! (About 27 of them, 140 cals...I know, I know, there's a lot more than just cals, but if I'm going to eat chips - that's pretty good...and of course, all the other junk comes along with it!) SO- not only did I find these new snacks - but they were BOGO at Publix. Woohoo!

-Being happy with my new make-up! A lot of money was spent, but over all- can't complain!

-Having a work schedule that allowed me to watch my beautiful god-daughter during the week...

-Having a man who brings me surprise flowers at work...just because.
He makes me so happy! :)

-Still being completely spoiled by my old man friend at work - 2 packs of Twizzlers, a pack of Chips a Hoy and a pack of Oreoes just this week. And, every Saturday (since I work alone on Saturdays) he asks me if there is anything he can get me - anything at all...and he isn't kidding.

No matter how sad I might get or how much pain my body is in or what a poopy moment I might be having - I try so hard to remember how incredibly blessed I truly am. You are, too!
