Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful...

  • for good movies in a cold movie theatre on a hot summer day

  • that Ashley's teacher from last year stopped by last night with her beautiful new baby boy.

  • for new car dealers whose first question to me while shopping their lot is NOT "What color were you looking for?"

  • that I can usually find my umbrella when I need it - AND - it isn't broken

  • for those infrequent and surpising days when the rush hour traffic seems to have moved to another city

  • for lemon grass tea from Adagio Teas. Actually all of their teas are great - very fresh!

  • for a purring cat snuggled up next to me at night

  • for the transdermal anti-inflammatory patch my neurologist gave me to try for my very sore elbow (rheumatoid arthritis). It's really working well - better even than the cortisone shot he tried.

  • for the beautiful carpet of leaves starting to pile up on my lawn

  • for the 100 calorie packs of Keebler Mini Fudge Stripe cookies. Just 16 packages and my calorie day is done!

I am trying to be positive about the leaves piling up. I just see all the raking. Ugh.

Great list!

Marla, I know what you mean about the leaves. But, that's when I add something else to my Thankful list - two teenage sons :)

I LOVE Adagio Teas! My friend got me hooked on it and I drink it all the time! :)

I can't wait for the leaves, too! But we don't have any yet. I live in a heavily wooded area...what's up with that?! Maybe next week...
