It’s Thursday again, and as you know, I like to take some time to be intentionally thankful … to help develop/maintain an attitude of gratitude.
I’m thankful for:
Being able to help out DD by watching the Ts so she could get some painting done at their new house. We had a long full day here … but we had a good time. We even had a sleepover … trying to get all 4 to bed at the same time (especially when T#4 should have gone to bed a half hour earlier) can be crazy, but there’s just something wonderful about tucking them in with a story and a prayer. This morning DH went on a donut run (we like to treat them with donuts when they spend the night here … our little “tradition”).
Lovely weather. The highs have been in the mid to upper 80’s and the lows have been in the lower 60s, with the sun shining. Of course, we have rain in the forecast for the next couple of days, but I’m enjoying this gorgeous weather while it lasts. I think that a bike ride just might be on the agenda for later today.
Good books. I’m in the middle of reading another Dorothea Benton Frank’s Sullivan Island (a story set in the Low Country of South Carolina, my favorite part of the country!). I’ve got a stack of 4 books waiting to be read when I’m done with this book, and a list of books that I want to check out of the library when I’m done with those.
