Catching up...

I feel like I'm playing catch up in all areas of life right now...including THE BLOG! But, it's easy to catch up when you have things to be thankful for.

#12 Last Friday I made my big grocery run to two grocery stores plus Costco. Therefore I am thankful for a full fridge and pantry. I really don't know if I can convey how grateful I am when I open the pantry or refrigerator door and see full shelves. Some of the twenty-one years of our marriage have been leaner than others and I know how to pinch a penny pretty hard. I pray that I will never take the blessing of provision for granted.

#13 I am thankful for dear friends. Our weekend was very friend-centric. Some highlights include a very fun 50th birthday party for a fun friend and getting to see some other dear friends who recently had a baby. We got to meet their sweet baby and spend a little bit of time catching up over Pinkberry! We also had a delicious dinner with friends on Sunday evening and I even managed to squeeze another friend's holiday party in there too. Friends make life so much sweeter, don't ya think? We feel so blessed to call some of the most amazing people on the planet our friends!

#14 I am thankful for a slower-paced week! Yesterday was really nice. I spent some time at home yesterday morning restoring order after a full weekend. I spent some time working. And then I went to Target just for fun. Can't tell you the last time I went somewhere "just because". It was very, very nice! I have some things scheduled for the rest of the week but honestly, I'm finally feeling like I'm not going full speed 24/7 and it's a beautiful feeling!

#15 I am thankful for my mom. I talked to her for a long time yesterday and it turns out that we're both facing some similar stuff--some similar hard stuff. I think we both sort of helped each other process some of it. It was good and I'm thankful for her! And hate we live so far away from each other.

Alright. My blog time is up. Hope you're all having a good week! Peace out, peeps.

Two things:

1 - I still haven't had Pinkberry.
2 - Blog time? You are far more disciplined than I. Maybe I need to set limits! Lightbulb moment!

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12-13

I thought of you when I read this today!
