Thankful Thursday 5-5-11

One of the many paths we explored during our vacation

Here is the first of what I hope will be a long standing tradition of Thankful Thursday posts.  Here are the some of the things I am thankful for from this past week
  • Successfully completing the A-Z Challenge
    • Word Nerd has such a way with word's that she is doing the challenge backwards during May!  Nerdy, or not, she is good with words and I enjoy reading her blog, so I'm happy (thankful?) that she will once again be blogging every day during May
  • Vacation time spent with the man I love
  • Successfully geocaching!  Even though there were a couple we didn't find, overall we had a high success rate
  • Doing a lot of walking and then realizing that my legs are (somewhat) used to being used all day long.  I constantly surprise myself with the ease in which I can walk long-to-me distances.  Now my arms are a whole other (weak) story!
  • Discovering two new blogs that instantly drew me in and touched my heart.  Both are written by the parents of special needs children, and boy-oh-boy do they have cute kids!!
  • Letting what could have been a hurtful comment roll off my back and making the decision to not let it weigh me down.
  • Watching the Royal Wedding and realizing that I felt genuine happiness for them, and not the jealousy I expected.
  • Planting a tree (and discovering that it was not too late to qualify for a free necklace from Figs & Ginger)
  • Spending time with Levi
  • The kind man who took my pizza order at Caseys.  His kindness put me in a good mood for the rest of the night.
  • An exciting baseball game where the Royal's came back and won right at the end!
  • Our baby birds are growing and everytime I check in on them they are cuddling.  Cuddling baby birds are adorable!

  1. Misty, today I needed your words of wisdom more than ever!! I am feeling paticularly low and I can always count on reading your blog to give me a positve outlook. I thank God that he put you in my life as a constant reminder of all the good things. As I have said many times... Thank you for being you! :)

  2. From your desk..."God doesn't give you the people you want, He gives you the people you help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to make you into the person you were meant to be."

    Add to my list of thankful things for today "I do not meet the 'to hurt you' qualification on Jenn's list!" Happy Thursday!!!!

  3. This was such a good idea... keep it up!
