It's the little things

Recent (small) events that I have been thankful for:

  1. Making time to eat breakfast every morning this week
  2. Starting back with my physical therapy
  3. Waking up with minimal pain this morning
  4. Casey truly enjoying his new job
  5. Casey's new paycheck (every little bit helps!)
  6. Having one full day in the office to catch up on paperwork
  7. Realizing I've lost 5 pounds
  8. Spending the day with a friend from work and her family
  9. Melatonin supplements working better than prescription sleep aids (Ambien is the devil!)
  10. Having time to play Yahtzee with my husband
I would also like to add a link that I think everyone should go to. I wish I could add it to the side of my blog as a permanent fixture on the page, but I can't seem to figure that out. If anyone knows how, please share. :)

**EDIT**: Thanks to my amazing husband for figuring out how to put this link on the side of my page. :)

OK, am I a total geek? I just spent 20 minutes going through words and adding 410 grains of rice to the total. I just love words! Oh, and by the way... thanks for the reminder to be thankful! :)

Mom said...

Yep, the rice game is pretty addictive -- thanks for helping me expand my vocabulary for the day! Ten grains per word doesn't sound like much, but I guess it adds up (especially if you play it for quite a while). :) I'm thankful for my beautiful, sweet daughters!

No way!! I stopped at 410 too!!! Aunt Donna and I must be equally cool. ^_^ Good post--great to be thankful, isn't it? ^_^

Melissa said...

Hey thanks for the link! Bev and I have spent a lot of time on that game lately. What a great way to raise funds/rice. Have a happy turkey day!

I'm with you on the Melatonin! I heard about it from a missionary friend who needed to be able to sleep on the plane/train/automobile with no day-after hazy-dazy-crazy stuff.

Yes, there is so much to be thankful for!
