Another Thursday, and another opportunity to express my thankfulness.
I’m thankful for:
- Our dog coming through her surgery ok. After a rough night (between the anesthetic and the stress of the day, she didn’t have the greatest evening), she’s back to normal this morning. She goes back in 10 days to get the stitches removed … in the meantime, we’ll be waiting for the biopsy results.
- My home sweet home. I enjoyed my visit to see my dad … and to get in a little beach time. But there really is no place like home.
- Lazy mornings. I used to be quite the night owl, although now I’m wondering how much of it was by necessity … when working full time, the only way I was going to be able to get everything done and to have any time to relax and do the things I enjoy doing would be to stay up late. Now that I’m retired, I find myself getting up at about the same time I did when I was working … but I’m not sure that I’m ready to proclaim that I’m a morning person … I’m definitely not ready to get going on my day for a couple of hours. I find myself relishing those lazy starts to my day.
- A new small group. I’m excited about the prospect of being able to fellowship and study, of being able to develop close relationships. I can’t wait for Monday!
