silver lining saturday

Okay, I'm going to try this thankfulness thing two weeks in a row and see if it becomes a habit. Terri is my idol!

Things have settled down some around here with our kids all ensconced in their schools now. My tutoring has slowed down as well since those kids have to go to "regular" school now too.

  • So I guess that's where I'll start. I'm thankful for my fulfilling job, and also thankful that it allows for some breathing room in my schedule.
  • Brandy had a medical scare earlier this week, but tests came back favorably, and for that I am thankful.
  • I'm thankful that there are people like this in the world.
  • I'm thankful that our kids are healthy and active and that they have active friends in the neighborhood. And I'm thankful that Chaco knows me well enough to know to ask to go to the second-hand sports stuff store to get him some football stuff.
  • Also on that note, I'm thankful we don't have a bunch of food allergies. A friend of Meego's is playing over here, and we have to go through the ingredients lists on every snack before he can dig in. He was all set to have a cookie, but then we discovered a no-no. My kids can eat all that crap.
  • I'm thankful for the nice weather we have here in Colorado. I know of people who bicycle commute year-round in Alaska *shivers*, not to mention the folks in Gustav's path...
  • And I'm thankful for my blog friends. Always good for laughs, inspiration, advice - a great bunch you all are!

Uhm.... Hello? Anyone there?


  1. *waving*

    I'm here! I'm thankful for people who are thankful.

  2. I'm here too! I love reading about the ways you feel blessed and am honored to be your "hero."

  3. I'm thankful to read your post. God is so good to bless us with all sorts of wonderful things...if we only look.

  4. I'm thankful you gave me something wonderful to read on a boring Saturday.

  5. I am thankful that football season is 4 days away!

    Does that count?

  6. aw, thanks Abby!

    Im not out of the woods yet - still some surgery likely but Ive had plenty of them a weird way, they can be RELAXING (with the right drugs, that is!) But at last the truly scary stuff is off the radar screen.

    School starts tomorrow - I CANT WAIT!!!!!
