It’s Thursday … a day that seemingly gets forgotten between Hump Day and TGIF Friday … a day when I take a few moments to express how richly I’m blessed.
1. The freedoms we enjoy in this country. While Independence Day (does anyone still call July 4 that any more?) coming, it’s time to look past the problems of budget deficits, budget cuts, political debates, etc. and focus instead of the freedoms we enjoy, the freedoms that came (and still come) at a price.
2. The weather. It’s been absolutely gorgeous … warm and sunny and almost no humidity to speak of. Granted, this will won’t last long … summer will return tomorrow with 90-degree weather and 100+ heat indices, but it’s nice to be able to enjoy having the windows open or sitting out on the deck with a good book.
3. The internet. I’m so thankful for things like blogging and Facebook, where I can connect with old friends and make new ones. I’m thankful for resources … like www.allrecipes.com where I found a new recipe for tilapia that DH declared a winner. I’m thankful for email that allows my sisters and me to stay in touch with our dad on a daily basis.
4. A good haircut. I got my hair trimmed Tuesday evening … I didn’t realize how long it’d gotten since the last trim. This just feels so much better.
