Thankful Thursday

I have so many things that I absolutely thankful for today, that I barely know where to begin.


1. I'm thankful that God reveals things to me about myself, partly I'm thankful because then I don't have to go through that awkward conversation about myself in regards to my misbehavior. And also because then He reminds me when I can do something different to change the behavior. You would be amazed at the things God would say to you if you're willing to listen, well at least I am

2. I have a beautiful husband who cares for me and is willing to deal with my bad attitude. He's a real winner. I love him and am so thankful that he agreed to hang out with me for the rest of our lives!

3. A dental office that really is concerned about more than oral hygiene, but also care for the person as well. They were so loving today. I was scheduled for a cleaning after Hannah had two fillings (which by the way are beautiful!) and they kept an eye on her an talked with her and had toys for her to play with. She was not a nuisance, which is a blessing! And the reason why my appointment was after her filling was because a. They understood that Hannah wanted me to be with her when she had her appointment. b. They recognized that Hannah might be overwhelmed if she were to have her teeth cleaned that day as well. So they saw me and gave her a later appointment.

4. I'm thankful that when I get down in the dumps and need to nap that it no longer consumes my life. I can rest assured that I will not have weeks on end of that kind of behavior, but instead will have an occasional off week and then by my normal hard working self again. Recovering from depression is something that I hope I NEVER take for granted.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
