Well, good morning friends. It’s deluging outside on this morning – a blizzard in rain. I’m thankful that it is rain, and not snow. The temperatures are in the 50’s; yesterday I saw 60 degrees. A rare treat in the middle of winter around here.
The Superbowl. It’s a surprise for me to be listing this. I usually watch the game each year, at least the half-time show (which was spectacular), with no particular interest in who wins. This year I was impressed with the excellent sportsmanship of both teams. No extra aggressive pushing and shoving, no egos asserting themselves – two teams playing an exciting game in the spirit in which is was meant. I’m thankful a little piece of my cynicism was ripped away.
A mini road trip with my sister was fun, spur of the moment and the prize at the end was a visit with my niece and her soon to be six-month-old, Juliette Anastasia. I’m sure you remember this was quite a prolific year for my family with six new babies.
I had the stomach flu this week and although I still don’t feel 100 %, I’m thankful. Here’s the thing about being thankful for the stomach flu – it’s not the other kind, it moves through your system relatively quickly, and on the second day, I had a glimpse of a number I hadn’t seen in awhile on the scale. Temporary, I know, but a girl can dream.
A walk around the reservoir with a friend I haven’t seen in awhile- enjoying the warmer temps before the rain started.
Long talks on the phone with my daughter.
A good laugh with my husband.
I’m thankful I managed, so far, to keep up with all the posts in all of the blog hops I participated in this week.
It’s going to stop raining this afternoon.
Always and forever, my granddaughter, Aubree Sue
