In a world that is far too negative and sad, I feel that there needs to be more positive thinking. So I give you….thankful Thursday.
1. Last week, my toddler told me “I love you” with no prompting from me. And he proceeded to hug me with his oatmeal-covered hands. Before I left for work. I am thankful for ALL of that. Some people never have the opportunity to be parents. Some may be parents, but their children may never be able to tell them “I love you.” It was a pretty sweet feeling.
2. Every day when I drive to work, I can’t help but realize how lucky I am to be working at my alma mater. I never dreamed that I would work there, and it’s amazing how things work out. I work with a team of positive people. The students and staff all support the place we work/study and it’s refreshing.
3. I’m so grateful for a warm home and that we haven’t lost power or had any real major issues since the polar vortex hit last week (and we are experiencing a cold snap now.) Many in my area are not as lucky – and for that, I’m thankful for the shelters and churches who open their doors for those who need the space.
What are you thankful for this week?
