I totally did not remember that today was really Thursday and all that it entails until I typed my title up there. And fortunately, I generally title my blogs before I write my posts.
We had a beautifully long week full of friends and relaxing and enjoying. We got to hang out and have lunch with our friend, Lisa, and her children's toys. We even got to enjoy the DIA with our friend Grandma Taylor and her grand kids. Both were great times out of the house. I am thankful that we have friends and places that welcome us.
I am exceptionally thankful for my grocery store this week. Mainly because they gave me almost free coffee. They would have given me free coffee, but I wanted the snooty fair trade stuff and that was not part of the deal. So I'm sitting here drinking my 1.50 for a pound Fair Trade Sumatra Coffee from Busch's. If you live near one, I do recommend that you try them. They have a program called "MyWay" and they keep track of everything you buy and occasionally send you coupons for things they think you'll like, for instance my coffee. We've also received coupons for free milk and a 24 pack of water and at least 25 dollars in non product related coupons, meaning it was taken off our total at the register. I could go on all day about their grocery lists, free coffee and snacks in the store, but I won't bore you with the details. Let's just leave it at exceptionally thankful.
I'm thankful for great advice that brings good things to fruition. Because of it, I was able to clear two things off my mind last night.
I'm thankful for trust. It's something that I'm seeing more and more recently. Which means that I might actually be moving beyond my turtle tendencies and into something completely more beautiful and enjoyable. I love how when we are alone with people we trust, we expose ourselves in ways that are unexpected and beautifully breath taking. I look forward to experiencing this again.
I'm thankful for my daughter. It amazes me how she can become more and more beautiful each day. I am completely smitten with her. Most days I can just eat her up, which is such a blessing.
I'm most thankful for my slacker husband. He's a slacker, because he picks up slack all the time, unlike me who is constantly slacking off. I love you, SweetPea!
