No, I'm not necessarily instating a new weekly series, BUT I thought it entirely appropriate to perhaps designate the next two Thursday posts as "Thankful Thursdays." In the spirit of giving thanks, I would like to share with you a few, albeit superficial, things I am thankful for today.
#1. COFFEE: Thank you Lord for creating a bean that distributes a substance called caffeine which I then, in turn, pump through my body everyday so that it is coursing through my veins a minimum of 365 times a year. And just so we're clear, I'm not referring to some sugary, cream laden impostor of a coffee beverage some out there label as "coffee." No, my friends, I'm talking pure, unadulterated coffee goodness.
#2. my fluffy, comfy BED: Thank you for my amazingly plush bed that I get to burrow into...I mean, sleep in every single night. From the dreamy feather bed to the down comforter, I adore it all. What a blessing to have such a snuggly place to lay my head.
#3. the SUN: Thank you for the delicious sun that warms my face and soothes my soul. We have been exceedingly fortunate the past few weeks with dozens of sunshine-y days. It's been positively glorious and I'm grateful for every minute of it.
#4. CHRISTMAS MOVIES: Random, yes, but I'm thankful for Christmas movies that I have already begun watching. So far, I've checked The Family Stone (What do we got goin' on here in Santa's workshop?), Elf (I like smiling. Smiling's my favorite.) and The Holiday (Are you embarrassed by this game I've started to play?) off my list, and I have every intention of crossing off It's a Wonderful Life (Buffalo girls won't you come out tonight.) this weekend. If you have yet to get started on your Christmas movie watching, I highly suggest you get your head in the game and start plugging away. Christmas will be here before you know it and you can't watch all those movies in one day.
So, there you have it. Those are just a few things I'm grateful for today. I hope you manage to find some things (great or small) to be grateful for during this upcoming Thanksgiving week.
