i'm thankful, today...
...for what i read in proverbs today about a really admirable way to live (from the classic proverbs 31). thankful for the picture it paints of beautiful living and something for me to strive for.
...for fran's encouragement. just really feel lifted and valued by him. today it was extra appreciated. he is very good to me with his words and i'm so thankful for that.
...for my lunch break. needed it real bad today. today, to be honest, was a hard one for me to feel very thankful. i was crabby and quick to say "no fair" in my head for losing prep time and after the third round of taking all the kids to the bathroom (kiddos who have lots of needs and don't listen & run away), i was about ready to lose it.
...for delicious spaghetti with squash noodles packed for me for lunch. dad even wrote a sticky note on the tupperware for me to make sure i took it. he's real good at taking care of me.
...for my mom's integrity. she works a hard job with people who aren't nice, but she is really really good. she's kind and patient and gives people grace and i'm thankful someone of such quality is my mom.
...also for my dad's intentionality. just today he went out of his way to meet up with a few people for lunch & coffee just to be nice and show them that he cares about them & asks questions. i'm thankful to have such a thoughtful dad.
...for no plans tonight. so so helpful for me to have chill nights at home on the weekdays.
...for tea. for comfy sweats. for not being cold inside.
...for the chance to do better about being positive and growing in Christlikeness tomorrow. new mercies every mornin, boy am i thankful for that.
catch ya tomorrow!
all we have needed, Thy hand has provided.
