Thankful on Thursday - WEEK ONE

I recently came across a blog called The Outdoor Wife.  It is a very insightful blog by a woman/wife/mom whose life is quite different than mine own, but I still felt a connection to her (probably because of this).  "OW" does something so neat. . .every Thursday she writes out at least ten things that she's thankful for and posts them for the blogosphere to see.  I decided to join her because I don't think there is ever a time that I don't need a reminder to be totally conscious of my blessings (large and small)!

Feel free to head on over to The Outdoor Wife or join me here for Thankful on a Thursday.  Instead of 10 things, I'm going to do 7. . .one thing for each day of the preceding week.

Week One:
I'm thankful for...
1.  My new "old friend" CG who I recently connected with and helped celebrate his birthday.  He has a fresh perspective on the world that I so enjoy!
2.  The fact that my husband understands my need for "a million" friends and doesn't mind the fact that sometimes my activities don't include him (really, I think he is thankful for it!).
3.  Bubs awesome vocabulary. . .never in my wildest imagination did I think I would have actual discussions with my 3 year old.
4.  Busy's new found ability to crawl. . .this leads to me not being too thankful that time is literally flying by.
5.  My Keurig coffee maker. . .oh the joy of having a fresh-brewed cup of coffee in under a minute any time day or night (also thankful for decaf!).
6.  The impending conclusion of LOST. . .that show drives me CRAZY. . .but I can't stop watching it.  I need it to be over!!!  (but then I will probably cry. . .)
7.  That my family keeps me grounded and sane when for the most part I feel like I am teetering on the edge!  I love laughing with Schmoops, snuggles with B & B, morning drive talks with Mom, running with McBFF, Blackberry messenging with Bethie, and all my true and trusted friends who make my life so happy and fulfilled!

I'll add one more. . .
I am thankful that I was not late for work ONE SINGLE DAY this week (so far. . .)

I love it...I will play next week--today, I'm in Tiernan world. Just posted another post outlining his day! Proud of myself two posts in one day.

BTW - I like your new layout...and did you change your blog name? For some reason it seems different to me!

Anyways, love your top 7!!!!!! Thanks for finding it!

Cute post - not a bad idea to remind ourselves to be thankful.

It's always good to remind ourselves of the many blessings we do have in our busy days.

I've done Thankful on Thursday or Thankful Thursdays or something similar in the past. I really should do it again. I've got so much to be thankful for.

Great post!!
