My Friend Brenda is hosting a Gratitude Challenge on her blog, Garden of Learning. It is very simple; post something you are grateful for every day for the month of November.
Some days are easier than others when being thankful. Today is one of those days.
My husband and one of my daughters attended a lector workshop at church this morning. My sweet husband got up, showered and headed over to the store to bring back donuts for our breakfast. He grabbed some coffee and our daughter and headed out again. I would have enjoyed my coffee and donuts more if he had been around but I’m still thankful for the breakfast treat.
I purchased around $110 worth of groceries for around $60. My favorite green beans were on sale for 39 cents a can. I only buy them when on sale and usually the sale is 50 cents a can. It just felt really good to get milk, bread, eggs, canned goods and even some fish and saving more money that I spent!
Today is the 1st Saturday of the month. Why is that important? Around here that means it’s bookmobile day. I didn’t go to the bookmobile but my sweet husband took all four girls over to the bookmobile and brought back the books and dvds we had on hold *and* he picked out a book for me to read. He’s usually good at picking books I’ll enjoy so I look forward to reading this one.
First Saturday of the month means that tomorrow is the first Sunday of the month and that means it is First Sunday Potluck at church. My oldest is making brownies. Oh they smell so good right now! I am thankful for a wonderful teenage daughter who loves to bake and for a wonderful smelling kitchen. Now if I could just sneak a small bite of those brownies.
What are you thankful for today?
