This week I am thankful for:
Extra time with the hubby even though it was due to him having oral surgery (which went well). It was fun hanging out without any agenda and leaving some of my usual routine behind. I did inform him that one day when he retires I will have to get myself on a schedule because my household chores went by the wayside for those couple of days! Today he is back to work and I am catching up double time.
Seeing four bald eagles in the span of just three days. One was sitting in a tree while I was driving in to town and it was so close to the road that I put on the breaks (a rural road with little traffic) and slowed to a crawl to be sure I wasn't hallucinating. The second was a pair in a tree near the riverbank on our way to church and the third one was a very large bird along the freeway just sitting there. No matter how many times I see these beauties I am still amazed at their majesty. God's creation is awesome!
Negative results on a test that a nephew had. When lymph nodes and mention of the "C" word are involved there is always concern so very thankful that all is good.
My parents and my mother-in-law - each blessings to us in their own unique ways.
Pandora. Our satellite package comes with Pandora music stations and I love that I can program in a favorite artist or genre to suit my mood. Today I have been catching up on cleaning with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble'.
Love, not the easy kind with hearts and flowers (though our anniversary was Valentine's day and I can get behind a gesture on the day) but the listening ear when you would rather watch your favorite TV show love, the sit beside you when you are sick and rub your shoulders even though you might catch it yourself love, the I know you are scared but we will get through this together love, the stand beside you and hold your hand while a loved one is laid to rest kind of love, the I am frustrated with you but still love you kind of love, the we are in this forever kind of love. The love that not only made the vows but keeps the vows.
I STILL take you, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part. (Amen.)
What are you thankful for?
May your weekend be filled with wonder, laced with peace and bursting with love...
(Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: his love endures forever. Psalm 118:1)
