TEN THINGS I'M THANKFUL FOR...



Earlier this week, I had every intention of posting links today. But as I was trying to finish the post yesterday, my heart was just not in it. I know I started the week off with all of the wonderful things that I did last week - so many fun things. But behind every pretty picture and fun circumstance, there is always something going on that I'm dealing with, worried about, anxious about, deciding upon, and losing a little sleep over. There was a lot of that going on this week. I know that I'm no different from you or anyone else. I myself try to keep that in mind when I look at pretty things on blogs and social media these days. Everything isn't always pretty for everybody. When I have moments like these, I whip out my notebook and write down the things I'm thankful for. It always helps ease my anxiety. Always. So I thought I would share what I wrote down with you today. It's what was on my heart and mind...

1. The sun. It decided to come out of hiding a few days this week after almost two weeks of rain. Loved it. 

2. My new job that I'm still loving. A job that I pretty much prayed about for three years. A job that pretty much came to me out of nowhere. Prayer works. 

3. A boss who tells me "thank you" all the time - and means it. I always return the compliment - and mean it. 

4. A former staff of mine who randomly called me this week to tell about her new job and how she credits me for preparing her for it. It's been about 5 years since we worked together and about 3 years since we've last spoken to each other. You just never know who's thinking of you... 

5. The sweet lady at my cable provider (you know a call to a cable provider almost requires a tall glass of wine these days), who sweetly and calmly handled my issue then surprisingly granted me a generous credit on my bill for the next 6 months just for being a "valued customer." If only she knew how much I valued her for doing that for me - this week especially. 

6. This tea. It's been helpful in calming me down before bed a few nights this week. 

7.  My mom, dad, and brother. We are currently planning our summer vacation. It will be our first family vacation in over 20 years. Just the four of us. Can't wait. 

8. The sales associate at J.Crew who asked me for my college ID this week as I was checking out. Bless his heart. My college days are almost 15 years behind me, so my mood was instantly lifted - way more than it would have been if I would have received their student discount (which is 15% by the way). 

9. Those of you who have sent me e-mails about how much you've enjoyed this blog. You guys have been on a roll lately- a time when I'm starting to think about how much longer I'll blog. 

10. The weekend... Of course. :)

Happy weekend friends...

  3. Noooooo don't stop this blog! I love it! But I can't imagine how much work it would be to blog and have a day job so I'd understand. I don't know where ill get recipes from if you do stop though. :)

  4. Such an inspiring post! Don't worry if you need to stop blogging - life is too short to feel obligated to something you're not passionate about. Life will present other ways for you to connect with people.

  5. I just want to thank you for always keeping it so real here... I've always admired your blog, for your beautiful photographs, your love of food, but probably most of all your voice and perspective on life. I know what a hard decision it can be about whether to stop blogging or not... I myself took about a 3 year hiatus when I had just landed a new job, and now I'm feeling the tug back... in any case, I just wanted to comment because I'm a long-time follower and rarely do, but your post compelled me to say I've been grateful for YOU and the inspiration you've put out into the world.
