I usually do this on the last day of the month but we were traveling and I had no service so here we are on the 1st. This has been a busy time and I have an abundance of things to be thankful for so here we go…
1.) Faith – God has kept me and continues to keep me and my family. Without faith, it would be difficult to get up everyday.
2.) Tomi – My wife is AMAZING! Since I’ve been unemployed, she has taken up the slack without any complaints. I know that having all of the financial responsibility thrust upon your shoulders can be quite the heavy load to bare but she carries it as though it ‘weighs’ nothing. I am so thankful to her and for her.
3.) Friends – There aren’t many people who can say they have friendships that have spanned two decades. I have several! My 20-yr high school reunion was awesome evidence of that.
4.) Being a granny – I’ve gotten to spend quite a bit of time with my Jaydie Bug lately. She is a pure joy! I wish I could spend more time with my California grandbabies; Desmond Jr. (Scooter), Da’Liyah and De’Zha. Perhaps we’ll plan a trip.
5.) Music – Helping me feel my feels!
6.) Reading – Being unemployed brings lots of spare time for reading. I am thankful for my nook and my library card.
7.) Nature – God definitely puts on some amazing shows and I am thankful to get to experience them.
8.) Concerts – My honey took me to see Montgomery Gentry & John Michael Montgomery at the fair. AMAZING! She’s a country music fan now.
9.) Bundles of joy – possibly being the care provider for this little one.
10.) Life – Regardless of the ups and downs, I am thankful for every day.
We’ll start with my Ideal Protein weigh-in from last Tuesday. Though I had what I thought was a bad week, I managed to lose .8lbs. and I gained an inch. While I didn’t do as well as I would have liked, I was not completely disappointed.
Last week was the week of our county fair.
For the sake of avoiding the temptation of fair food, we didn’t attend the fair but we did go to one of the concerts. We saw Montgomery Gentry with special guest John Michael Montgomery. IT WAS AWESOME! (I am a fan of country music in case you haven’t guessed it by now.) we had reserved seating, centered to the the stage about 12 rows back. They were on stage for more than 3hrs!
John Michael Montgomery
Did I already say IT WAS AWESOME!
I also got to see my Jaydie Bug this weekend.
Then, Sunday at midnight, I started a Facebook Time-Out with a few of my friends. It’s the beginning of day two and so far so good. I will keep you posted.
