Thankful by Josh Groban on Grooveshark

I know I've said something along these lines before, but I really am so glad to be doing this list. It helps me be more aware of the good things in my life & really puts things into perspective. Today I am thankful for...

  1. Cody taking the trash out without being told
  2. A half-birthday card that totally made my day!
  3. A half-birthday lunch with Jana & Caleb :)
  4. Elly's art teacher's letter of recommendation for advanced art next year
  5. Elly's ELA teacher recognizing & encouraging her writing skills
  6. Empanadas with Dan, Amanda, & Isaac
  7. Peanut Butter & Chocolate dessert empanadas
  8. Bloggy friends who "big puffy heart long comments" {'cuz I can be a little wordy!} :)
  9. A baking afternoon with Amy
  10. Discovering Biscoff
  11. A 10-pack of Twix from my baby girl
  12. Bible discussions with my friend Carrie
  13. Hanging out with my neighbors in my van in front of their house {'cuz they're adorable & quirky ~ no wonder I love them so much!}
  14. Laughter at Game Night with my friends at church
  15. A video that make me feel slightly less quirky
  16. A non-traumatic haircut {'cuz I'm a wimp & only had a few inches cut. I felt like it was more than usual, but my family didn't even notice...}
  17. An afternoon to catch up with Laura
  18. Rocking Isaac until he fell asleep in my arms
  19. My windshield wiper not breaking until the rain had stopped
  20. A beautiful service honoring the life of Brother Jerry
  21. Reconnecting with some high school friends
  22. Finding out some encouraging news from a classmate
  23. Dad telling me that he's happy that I had Brother Jerry in my life ♥
  24. Chris being asked to speak at an OM conference
  25. Good food & conversation during Super Bowl parties

What are you thankful for today?

You celebrate half-birthdays? That is fantastic! :) I love your wordy comments... they are the best ones! I think I can be wordy in comments too know that I think about it! lol Twix... ohh... been too long. I loved the peanut butter ones, but they must have stopped making them. I love your gift lists Amy... they are always filled with wonderful things! :)
