Because there are documented benefits to a regular practice of gratitude and thanksgiving, I pause on Tuesdays and give thanks for all of the wonderful things in my life. There are really too many to list, but I try to make Tuesdays my highlight reel.
This week, the following things are making the list:
- Sweet Husband. With my surgery looming, he has stepped up & gotten a ton of things accomplished around the house. & because I’m pretty anxious about the whole thing, he has been reassuring me that everything is going to be alright. Plus Sunday, he made me breakfast & bloody marys. I was supposed to have made him breakfast & bloody marys but uncharacteristically, I slept until 9:30.
- Our home warranty. Last week our AC stopped working. It turned out that it was just a part that needed repaired but we need to begin thinking about replacing the outside unit as it is 12 years old. Our home warranty meant that service call only cost us $75.
- The Photo Friday community. Because of the injury to my shoulder, I won’t be able to get out & take photos for the weekly link-up. Members of the community have graciously offered to step in & provide guest posts & encouragement to keep everything running smoothly while I’m out of commission.
- Cooler weather. Sunday was one of those beautiful, rainy days where all you want to do is snuggle up & be lazy/sleepy/fuzzy. We all – SH, me, our friends, the Desserts – took advantage of the excellent napping weather.
It’s a short list this week…I think because I’ve been preoccupied with getting myself together for being out of commission.
What are y’all grateful for this week? What blessings are you counting?
