Hooray! It’s the first Thankful Thursday of 2012! Head on over to Kate Says Stuff to see what others are giving thanks for on this beautiful day.
Today I’m thankful for friendship. I picked up a couple of coffees at a Zaraffa’s drive through coffee shop (seriously, drive-thru CAFFEINE people!) and headed to a friend’s place for a new year catch up. If every day started with coffee with a friend, the world would be a better place. Not much would get done, but what was done would be done with a smile. Women need women, we need girlfriends, we need people who can give us the emotional support our men, God love them, can not. It is never less than a 2 hour gab fest with this particular friend, and I always leave feeling there was more to talk about. It will have to wait for next time.
Today I am thankful my husband managed to get a flight from Detroit to LA so that he can come home as scheduled. Flying standby has it’s perks, but also has its risks, and after a morning flight was cancelled out of Detroit, the domino effect had the potential to cause complete havoc. So far all is ok though and he’s still scheduled to arrive home tomorrow afternoon. Nicklas is going to be so excited!
I’m also thankful for gratitude. Gratitude is going to change my life, or at the very least, my outlook on life, this year. I’m keeping a gratitude journal over here, please go check it out when you can. I’m including a pic and a short paragraph about something I am thankful for each day. It’s hard NOT to have a positive outlook when you’re always looking for something to give thanks for. Give it a try!
