Thankful Thursday 2-11-16

I had most of this list written last Thursday, but not the rest of the post, so I didn’t get it up. I thought about posting on Saturday, but the day slipped away from me. So I decided to add to it and post tonight instead.

This week and last week, among other things, I am thankful:

  • that people around here do things like take something to the Lost & Found at the front desk instead of stealing it
  • that when I tripped on the concrete steps on the way to work (thus dropping the thing that was lost and later found), I didn’t bash my knees or even take any skin off my hands
  • Sea turtle in sunlit shallows

    for the gorgeous pictures I found on a National Geographic photo contest – like this one, which was taken by Tommy Schultz – some of which now brighten my desktop

  • that my words could be a help to someone in sorrow
  • that the wonderful volunteers who have doubled our attendance numbers at morning coffee breaks are patient with me as I get a handle on how much coffee to make
  • for the new coffee pot we got to replace the one that got dropped off the back of a golf cart and broken, since we were using a jury-rigged contraption with part of a percolator while we waited for it
  • that my cold from a few weeks ago seems to be all gone now
  • that when I broke three fingernails at once moving a five gallon bucket of barbecue sauce (did you know they weigh 50 pounds (~23 kg)?) I didn’t break anything else
  • having someone to go with to see a movie I might not ordinarily watch but kinda wanted to (and then surprising myself by actually liking it 🙂 … I should say, liking most of it, since there were parts I couldn’t see through my fingers)
  • that when I dropped that case of root beer in the cooler this afternoon, I caught it across the corner of the shelf and not with my foot or smashed on the floor (I did have to stand there a minute breathing off the adrenaline spike, though.)

So there you have it. It hasn’t been a boring couple of weeks, that’s for sure. 🙂 How about you? Anything you’re thankful for in your week? Something that happened or maybe something that didn’t? Feel free to share in the comments!

  1. Three fingernails at once? Yikes!
    I am thankful that the house we live in has an air-conditioner, thus making it possible to give tonight’s lasagne the appreciation it deserves even when it’s still 24C outside at half past six!

    Thankful for a sister that makes me wonderfully creative hats like the big red anry bird and a wonderful niece who is the head model 🙂
