The Blended Blog is kicking off the first Monday of November with a TBB Asks all about things your are thankful for! Feel free to follow these prompts or link a thankful posts all your own. With all the evil our world continues to battle every day, I find some peace in looking over all I am thankful for. I hope you will too!
One | Y’all, does it make me a loser if on question #1 all I can think is I don’t have any new friends?!! Does it make it a new friend if it’s totally a one-side relationship because if so my newest friend is Jenn from The Sister Studio. I’m obsessed with her insta-stories and am sure she’s like who is this old chick that keeps commenting?!!
Two | My skin! Okay..this is hard and there haven’t been any new diamonds around here. Haha, but really, I have gotten back on a routine of washing my face every night before bed and my skin is glowing again. It’s amazing what a little TLC will do!
Three | My mother-in-law has definitely been my saving grace this past year. I know in-laws aren’t suppose to really be all that great but I pretty much hit the jackpot (twice if I’m being honest). My mother-in-law is truly at my beck and call and always willing to help me when I’m in a bind with the kids. I’m not sure what I’d do without her.
Four | Fresh flowers! Doesn’t matter if they are delivered fresh from the florist or picked up at the grocery store, heck picked on the side of the road works too, I LOVE fresh flowers!
Five | My friend Lorri called me on Friday and it was so good to hear her voice. There is just something so comforting in talking to a friend from your hometown who knows your roots and loves you anyway. The two of us logged some miles, shared lots of laughs and lots of tears and when I talk to her now I it just like we are 16 again! My friend (of 24 years) Kelli who loves me truly like Jesus does! And Holly (of 16 years) who seriously takes some of my snarkiest, worst moments and pushes me to just stop the madness.
Six | Depending on the day you catch me it might be hard to tell but I am very thankful for my office! My career has definitely exceeded my expectations and I am definitely thankful for the mentors and peers I have encountered in the workplace.
Seven | My friend Lallah taught me to look for solutions instead of focusing on the problems. It’s seems so logical but I think we all have a tendency to crater sometimes when a problem seems too big or life is overwhelming . She taught me to take a different look at things. Sometimes you will find the solution is letting something you see as a problem go.
Eight | Evidently my mind as it seems too far away to connect with these days! I’m thankful I do still have it even if it’s hard to locate.
Nine | Jesus! No doubt right now He’s the one I’m putting my trust in.
Ten | My love. I see his face every single day and am so thankful he always greets me with a sweet smile even when I’m a big sour puss.
Eleven | Blogging! I truly love this space and am thankful for the interaction it brings as well as the possibility for positive influence.
Twelve | Definitely thankful for my momma. I don’t give her much slack but I give her so much credit because I know had she not pushed me so hard to be strong I would never have been as successful at life.
Thirteen | Home! We have been working on updating a few things around the house (living room update I love) and I’m just so thankful to have a home to come home to every day.
Fourteen | Right now I have to say I’m thankful for the coaches in Dillon’s life. I know right now they have a ton of influence over him and I’m so thankful they are not only teaching him to be better on the field but leading by example off the field.
Fifteen | Coffee, I am very thankful every day to have a fresh pot of coffee waiting on me when I wake up. My husband makes the best and I so miss it when I have to make it myself!
Okay…damn this was hard y’all! I sat down to write what I thought would be an easy 20 minute post and two hours later I’m still contemplating my answers! Hope you had a much easier time deciding what you are thankful for!!
