Howdy, y’all! Anyone find it odd that I am currently watching Enchanted (the Disney movie) on SyFy?
Well, nevermind that. Throughout the course of today, I caught myself thinking about the many wonderful things I have to be thankful for on a daily basis. Through my whole Lenten journey, another goal I had sent for myself is to recognize the beauty in the things that God has created for me and to find deeper appreciation for the life that I have.
I am thankful for puddle-less days of sunshine that follow days of dark downpour.
I am thankful for my health, because regardless of injury, my body is still healthy and allows me to accomplish many things day in and day out.
I am thankful for tupperware, especially mini containers and sandwich containers. Both of which allow me to save some money and save the planet by not using plastic bags.
I am thankful that I do not have to work tomorrow morning and can stay up and watch cheesy TV and eat popcorn.
I am thankful for the Lorax and Ihop, for they are giving children recognition of what happens to the environment and provides seeds to plant trees to help.
I am thankful for the opportunity I was given to coach throughout this swim season. Tomorrow is the first day of their district swim meet, which means that the season will be ending this weekend. I have enjoyed spending so much time with these swimmers and getting to know each of them.
I am thankful for Amazon.com. My goodness, I order so many things from them and their service is incredible. Also, getting mail and packages can brighten my day, even when I am expecting the delivery!
I am thankful that I am one week away from spring break and spending time with my family. Last year, I wasn’t given spring break due to student teaching, and I have not spent more than a weekend at home with my family in well over a year.
I am thankful that turning vegan for Lent has made me more aware of what I need to fuel my body and has introduced me to new meal creations, such as quinoa which I tried for dinner for the first time! I mixed it with some garlic, corn, peas, and peppers for a veggie fix! Loved it!
I know that I have so many more things to be thankful for, but that’s all I wrote down throughout the course of the day. I guess I could also be thankful for people who do things like this:
I found this on The Berry and loved it. Some people are amazing.
Well, that’s all folks. Back to that cheesy TV I was mentioning earlier
What do you have to be thankful for?
