Thursday Thanks

It's hard to believe that it is Thursday already, but it is, and this is becoming my favorite day of the week.  What better way to start a day than to list a few of the things that I am thankful for today.  So, let's just assume that I am Thankful for the givens; Health, Family, Faith, Food, Home, My readers, etc., and allow me to list some of the more trivial, or insignificant things that get lost on an ordinary day.

Today I am Thankful for:

11).  The robust woman at McD's that refers to me as "baby" and "sugar" every morning when she hands me my coffee.  She makes me smiley.

12).  Elephant Pink OPI nail polish - it's amazing how tan my feet look when the nails are bright pink!

13).  Our pool - it provides hours of free family entertainment and bonding

14).  The bag boy at Publix who didn't hesitate a moment when I asked him to grab me a gallon of milk that I forgot (mind you that was my sole purpose of going to the grocery store...ugh)

15).  The giant bruise that is forming on my left thigh.  Because it means that last night when I got tripped up in my pajama pants and went sailing into the wooden rocking chair with the baby cradled in my arms, I didn't harm her precious head, but myself instead. 

16).  Dijorno Pizza because it provides a tasty an inexpensive alternative to ordering out

17).  My 4 year old who loves me THIS MUCH ::arms open as wide as they can be:: and tells me so every night as I tuck her in for the 17th time

18).  Cute little baby buns that are so adorable after tubby time

19). My brand new INC fat jeans that make me feel skinny

20).  30 days of sobriety for PG!  If you recall this post then you know that this is a very big deal!  Praise ye the Lord!

If you wanna join the fun and give thanks for your blessings today, go ahead and link up with Alysha at The Tarr Pit and check out what she and everyone else is thankful for today.

And, I leave you today with this A-DOR-ABLE shot of my lovie taken last Sunday evening.  I'm having it printed on 11x16 canvas.  My nifty fifty is quickly becoming my favorite lens!

It makes me cry to think that PG has been sober for 30 days! What a blessing! I wish my dad would have made that life choice before the alcoholism took his life. I am so happy for you! And i love digornio pizza. DE-LIC-IOUS!

Thanks for the shoutout and i hope you link up! :)

What a great list! I especially like the one about the bag boy at Publix, because it isn't often you get good customer service anymore. (BTW...are you in Florida? I tried to email-reply you from one of your comments on my blog, but I couldn't find an email address for you.)

I have an award for you! Have a great day!

What a wonderful post. I love the one about the lady calling you sugar and baby. I also love OPI nail polish (I'm going to have to look for that color) and I love the one about the bruise because it was on you and not your baby. Isn't that what it is to be a mother. So sweet!

Great post! Linking up with Alysha at the Tarr Pit links up with me at The McGlothin Family Nest too! So glad you linked up.

My six year old step-daughter loves the arms wide open move and she tells me that even though my arms can stretch farther than hers, she still loves me more than I love her :)

Those pictures are so cute!! I am following you now! I love hours of fun in a pool. We could have used that yesterday when it was about 95 degrees outside! Come visit me at Mama's Little Chick.
