Thankful Thursday

1:48 PM Edit This 1 Comment »

So I have decided to start a new tradition for my blog. Every Thursday I am going to give praise for all the blessings in my life. So often we find ourselves weighed down with disappointments, mishaps and frustrations. But in some of the simplest daily moments, rituals and motions can we find some of the brightest of lights. So as I said, each Thursday I will just bullet some of the things I'm thankful for.

~I'm thankful for the sound of Chloe walking through the door after Daddy picks her up from daycare.

~I'm thankful for the hugs, messy kisses and I love you that come almost immediately after the door opens.

~I'm thankful for my husband, the man who I envision my forever with.

~I'm thankful to have a job in an economy where so many have been forced to give up so much.

~I am thankful that for all my faults, there are still people out there who love me.

~I'm thankful to be able to put clothes on my child's back, food in her belly, a soft and warm bed to sleep in and unconditional love.

~I'm thankful for my friends, each and every one of you. Even the ones who don't participate much anymore, I am thankful for you too...

Those are just a few of the things that I am thankful for. The list is endless but I didn't want to keep those who read my blog in front of their computers on end...

P.S. I am thankful for YOU!!

So Brittne from Our Life's Journey tagged me in this game. I guess the way to play is to tell the world, okay just those who care enough to read about my life, 6 weird things about your's truly, tag a few friends, although that may be hard as I only have Brittne on here really lol and cross my fingers that they join in.

So... here goes it!

1. I love chicken. I swear that every time I hop online or look in a cookbook for new recipes I am always finding myself drawn to the chicken section.

2. I am polydactyly! What is this you ask? Well its when someone is born with additional fingers or toes. I technically have 6 toes on my right foot although the last two are connected looking like one ginormous toe and the last two (a little one plus the ginormous one) are webbed. I am extremely embarrassed by it because I was made fun of it for years... but I guess its why I swim so well. Ha ha.

3. I named my daughter after Chloe Steele from the Left Behind series. Mainly because of her stubborn and hard headed attitude but also because of her devotion to the things that are important to her, such as God.

4. I can sing my abc's backwards. I can attribute this to three years of high school choir and although I've been out of high school for 6 years now I can still do it!!

5. I hate to drive. Every time I climb into a car I am struck with the urge to fall asleep. So I only drive short distances (such as to work or to get Chloe from daycare) and I leave all the long drives up to Christopher.

6. Last and certainly not least... I have something about me that is similar but opposite to one of Brittne's afflictions lol. I can't go to the gym with people I know. I constantly feel like they are judging me based on what I can do in comparison to them. So instead I like to work out alone. Plus I can listen to my mp3 player without worrying if someone is trying to discuss the latest bogus move Obama is making.

So now it is my turn to tag someone lol. Well... I'll just have to fail in that aspect lol.
