Thankful Thursday (after a long hiatus)

Ah. It's good to be back here. I choose not to use this blog as my personal diary, so I haven't been using this at all for several weeks now. If you know me, you can guess some of the reasons. Suffice it to say, that I've been following my own instinct and choosing how to spend my time wisely. And that did not include blogging. However, I've missed it! I've found new recipes (some were an epic fail, even though the Coastie bravely cleaned his plate) and gone on new adventures.

But what I've really missed is putting positive vibes out on the internet. So, for all 3 people who read this (ahem best friend Liz), welcome back to Thankful Thursday!!

This week, I am most grateful for hearing the Coastie's voice. As he says, it is the best part of my week. Hands down. So, with that to buoy me on until the next time I hear his voice, I am also thankful for:

Only a few more days of my current job. It has been a daily struggle - emotionally, professionally, and spiritually. I will miss my residents and pray for them constantly. If it crosses your mind, pray for all nursing home residents everywhere... they are a forgotten, scared, lonely group who deserve more compassion, support, and respect than they currently get in our healthcare system and society.

A visit coming up from my best friend Kara and then my dear, sweet friend Heather.

An afternoon at the pool.

An unexpected beach day.

Afternoon rain storms.

Our new-to-us, reliable vehicle.

Bible verses that reassure me of God's love and plan for my life.


The sale shelves at the Commissary.

Be thankful today, and every day, and try to spread some positive energy and love to your friends, family, and the online community.


  1. I am thankful for you!! And, I'm thankful that you are back to the blogging world :)

  2. Me too! I will try to be better at posting on a regular basis. :) I am sure I will have more time once I'm a stay-at-home wife.
