"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." W. J. Cameron
I do love to take the time to stop and think about how richly I’ve been blessed and to express my thankfulness. I don’t have the time nor space to express everything for which I am thankful, but just a few that come immediately to mind are:
Time with the Ts. I know I’ve listed this before … and will likely list it again. T#2 and I baked cookies while the 2 littlest Ts were napping yesterday afternoon, and it was a precious time together.
Relief from the heat. We had several days of 100+ temperatures, with heat indices of 110-115. The temperatures will be rising again (it is July in the Midwest, after all!), but I’m thankful for some respite from the summer heat.
Getting back to my normal routine. I enjoyed the weekend with my sister, but it’s nice to get back into our normal routine. Yes, I’m definitely a creature of habit. ha!
A flexible work place. DD called me at work late Tuesday morning and invited me to join her in a shopping trip. I had scheduled myself to work the full day, but I couldn’t pass up an afternoon with DD & the Ts! So I told my supervisor that I was going to take the afternoon off (and work this morning to make up the time). If I was going to go back to work (even if just on a temporary assignment), I knew it had to be one where I’d have the flexibility to make my own schedule … and change it when I needed to (for a family emergency … or just a fun afternoon with DD).
