Thankful Thursday is about as random as it gets this week. Sometimes life is so seemingly ordinary. As I’ve thought about it I realized anew that seemingly ordinary is ok. In fact it’s more than ok. My days don’t always have to be jam packed with adventure, mischief or drama. (Frankly, I’m not a fan of drama). My week in review provided plenty of reasons for gratefulness…in no particular order of importance.
Rain. Last night we finally got a good soaking. It has been a very dry summer. There has been quite a bit of thunder, some lightning but very little rain. The sound of the rain on our roof last night was a music to my ears.
A text from one of the hooligans (affectionate term for our kids) in which he commented that the music he was listening to reminded him of his grampy (my dad). I was grateful that he let me know.
The opportunity to spend time with friends last weekend. Eating together, socializing, getting to know one another just a little bit more.
The variety of my reading material this summer. Often I get stuck in a rut or a genre but this summer I’ve branched out and it has been enjoyable and thought provoking.
Filing for work. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
I love the alphabet.
Give me a stack of papers that need to be alphabetized and I am a happy woman. The last few weeks I have been organizing some work files and it has been relaxing and productive.
Anticipated events have been swirling around in my mind of late. A visit from out of state family, a wedding shower, a trip in the fall, a wedding all are on the horizon.
Other people’s vacation photos and stories. Today I was with a friend who told me about something that happened while she was on vacation and I was doubled over laughing. I’ve seen photos of a sailing trip, an Alaskan trip, cabins and cottages and a vacation in Ireland.
MOMD (Man of My Dreams) continues to recover from his rotator cuff surgery. Back to doing away with mosquitoes as best as he is able!
This is a bit of a hodgepodge post but as I looked back over the last few weeks I realize again what a blessed life I lead.
Maybe your world has been more eventful this week.
