Three weeks completed in 2011?! Time flies whether you’re having fun or not. 😉 I must admit – I’ve had better weeks. It’s been a while since I spent so many hours at the office and also got as stressed as I did. But, like most experiences, it came with a lot of learning and by now…Thursday, life is feeling pretty calm again. And, thus, once again I’m THANKFUL. A few things.
1. That some of my friends had a pretty impressive birth! I’ve seen pictures of the little one and heard they are all doing okay. Welcome to the world, little one!
2. Last night I came home and saw fire trucks and smoke blocking my block and feared it was my house. It wasn’t. Thank you!
3. I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m very thankful for working with such hardworking and good-attitude folks. I really am.
4. That I was able to see a doc that gave me some good advice about my knee pain and I can start therapy on Monday. Thankful for insurance, indeed.
5. Oh, and pet insurance. Taking my 3.5 year old pooch in for shots and to get her ears looked at tomorrow. Glad to know I’ll get reimbursed for some of it, regardless of what’s the issue! I highly recommend pet insurance if you have a pet you love.
6. As mentioned before, music. It’s really a calming force in my life. I “blame” it on my mom who would sing and dance me and my brother around when we woke up in bad moods as little ones. This week’s lyrics:
So baby hold on
just another day or two
I can see the clouds are
moving faster now
and the sun is breaking through
“Hold On” – Tobymac
8. Oh, my Diabetic-Anniversary! Nice to read the nice comments on the blog and FB from my supporters.
9. Some sweet pictures of my grandmother (Grandma) and great-grandmother (Grandma Brown) that some family members have posted on FB lately that have just warmed my heart to see. I was a Grandma’s Girl to both of them and love and miss them both so much every day. I feel so thankful to have been blessed with such wonderful women in my life. My Grandma kept me and my brother a lot as kids for holidays/summer and she tolerated my wackiness up until her final days. She really knew “me” from a little girl on and her love was so genuine and sweet to my life. My Great Grandmother and I loved to think of our dreams if we won Publishers Clearinghouse together. One of hers was a big house with a sewing room. In her later years she could direct me on things to do (like cook) and we had such a good time together. Both of them showed me so much loved and shared so much laughter…and tears.
10. E-mails from friends. Sometimes, when miles or busy-lives separate them from me, it’s such a nice thing.
My life is blessed. I hope yours is too.
