Thankful Thursday, 2.23.12

ThankfulThursday




Did you know that people who wrote down five things they are thankful for once a week felt not only happier but healthier? (According to a study done in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.) Counting your blessings helps you empathize, too. When you do this - you'll focus on what really matters!

I am thankful for...
A great workout week!
House sitting & dog sitting three dogs for two weeks! We're moving on in for a couple of weeks to a house with a pool & jacuzzi...warm weather, please!
Having Saturday AND Sunday off...woohoo, a "real" weekend!
A total stranger telling me how beautiful I am at the grocery store the other day. Oh, and that I am totally "rockin it." (Haha. Totally unexpected but totally cute. Made me smile!)
A friend bringing some delicious homemade Indian food to work. I've been craving it lately - we had a conversation a couple weeks ago about it and he brought me some right out of the oven/stove! So delicious.
Finding a new delicious protein powder - cinnamon roll flavor, too. Super delicious in chocolate almond milk!
Praise Jesus that my sister was safe & out of harm's way in a car accident last night. GOD IS GOOD. He was definitely with her last night.

Oops...I went over my "five per week." ;)


What are you thankful for?!

  4. Gotta love friends who listen when you talk and then act on what you say !
    How cool a total stranger told you you looked beautiful - I am always happy when my husband tells me although I do think he needs to get his eyes tested !!

  11. Isn't that fun to get unexpected comments from people now and then? I've always wanted to try Indian food. Nel just loves it. I'm so glad you're sister is safe. Yes, God is good. I can't tell you how much you look like me in that picture, "Hi, I'm Cami"...a younger me of course hehehe Oh, I didn't try the Pomegranate wine, but it sure looks good.
