I think that we’ll pretend today is not November 4th, and that I’m not hugely behind. I’ll catch up.
1. My job. Ya’ll, the economy sucks. I’m not employed in my field, but I’m employed. I generally like my coworkers. My boss is kind of awesome. I’ve never had to hunt for a job in Louisiana. This is huge.
2. My small group at church. As in, my small group at my church in Ruston. I’m quite certain I thought I’d never get to this point. But I have and I like them. I like their candor, and their fellowship, and that they’re at similar stages of life as mine and Stephen’s.
3. Flowers from my husband. The 3rd of November is my birthday. The husband brought me flowers and Little Caesar’s Hot ‘n Ready Pizza and Crazy Bread with garlic butter dipping sauce. Yes, that’s not a health food. But he made dinner and I didn’t have to and there was wine and he was finally home from work.
4. My husband. I think when you get married as old as I did, you start to wonder if it’s ever going to happen. And you date these guys that seem great and then you don’t marry them. And then, you meet a guy and he’s fabulous and he’s exactly everything you could’ve wanted and everything you could’ve needed and you understand why it took so long. (Writing that reminded me of a post idea I have. Don’t let me forget to write to ya’ll (my imaginary readers) about singleness. I have many thoughts about it.)
The other advantage to this month is that if I’m really going to keep up with being thankful every day, I have to write every day. Perhaps at the end of 21 days, it’ll be a habit.
Public Service: I’m linking up with Kelly’s Korner today. Her Show Us Your Life today is for non-mom blogs. I’d love more blogs to read, and I’d love more readers, so it’s like everyone wins!
Also, I’d like to take this time to say, “GO HOGS!!!”
