Motion Sensors

Today I am grateful for motion sensors... because they are AWESOME, and really pretty cool, when you stop to think about it. We live in the super tech age of the future... even Marty McFly would be jealous.

Even the malfunctioning motion sensors are awesome... and hilarious. :)

I am Grateful for...

My Bathroom scale!
And yes, I want to make the number lower, and I'm grateful that I know how.

26 years old and going to bed early!

Hhhhhhhhh what a full day! I am grateful for my sister's 26th birthday, grateful for shrimp and crab cannelloni, and grateful to get 2 precious minutes on the phone with my favorite girl. Now I am grateful to read a book and go to bed early!

Light in Churches

So grateful today for my wonderful church family... Thank you, Cleburne Bible Church, for making church such a happy, joyous place, a spiritual comfort, and just an overall GOOD thing in my life...

I am learning today that not everyone has been so blessed in finding such a loving, positive, sweet, caring, honest church population to surround them and support them.

Thank you, God, for Cleburne Bible Church... and thank you for bringing me there, too.

I am Grateful for Second Chances

Third, fourth and fifth ones too!

Amazing Woman

Today, I am grateful for the woman who sees more beauty in me than I knew I had... I'm grateful for the woman who neatly folds the blanket on the couch even though she's sad to go. I'm grateful for the woman who always gives me the space to say what I want to say, and listens to herself as well as to me. And last of all, I'm grateful for the woman who would choose me over the prince of England any day.

Craig Ferguson

Today I am grateful for Craig Ferguson because he is HILARIOUS. Cracks me up.

Love him.

Anything Unusual

Today I am thankful for the unusual, for anything different, for new explorations, for intriguing experiences, for chances and possibilities and risks, for places I have never been before, and for things that I have never done.

That's one extremely awesome thing about this planet: nobody ever dies having done everything... There is always something else they could do. Both overwhelming and inspiring.

Today I am super thankful for people who are just all around nice... It's nice when people are nice, and it's nice to hear when someone likes your work... even nicer when they ooh and ahh over it.

To-Do Lists

Today I am thankful for to-do lists. They show me things that I have accomplished and help me keep track of things I'm still working on. They show off my victories and usually highlight my faults. I am thankful for the sanity and the motivation and the organization and the satisfaction they offer.

More than that, I am thankful for my hands and for my eyes, that I can see the piece of paper and hold the pen with which I write, and I am thankful for the pen and also the piece of paper.

Did I also mention I am thankful for pink post-it notes?

I am.  :)

The Declaration of Independence

Today I am thankful for my country... I am thankful that I am a citizen of the United States of America, that I am protected by the Constitution, and that I have the bravest men and women in the world fighting for my freedom in the armed forces, all day, every day.

I am grateful that I am American.

Hugs and Open Doors

Today I am thankful for double hugs (you know, when two toddlers run towards you across a crowded room at the same time just to give you giant football-tackle hugs) and for people who are willing to stand out in the cold and rain just to hold a door open for you.

Those are two very awesome things.
