I am scatterbrained today…so for today’s blessing, I will just list ten random thoughts and stuff going on in my life.
#1 – This morning I got my very first text from The Man in nearly two years. It made my heart a-flutter and got me to thinking that maybe I missed this texting thing more than I thought.
#2 – Friends. They are the greatest. In the past couple days, I’ve texted, emailed, Facebooked and talked in person to friends. *sigh* Friends are wonderful.
#3 – WHO needs or wants to be tracked by a thing called Google Now in order to see if there are traffic jams on the way to work?!?! My phone asked me if I would accept this. Ummm, no.
#4 – I really like my mother-in-law. Really, really. Hearing all the MIL jokes out there, I’m guessing some MILs aren’t good? Glad I got a good one. (Oh, and she saved and gave me her farm raised chicken bones for broth – with just a little eye brow raising.)
#5 – I’m starting on the porch reno. Hope to have it done and decorated by fall.
#6 – Our family room is STILL “in progress.” Life’s not perfect or quick. I’m am trying to rest and believe this quote by Ann Voskamp’s blog: “There are no winners in the race to get it all done. Because the reality is that after those things are done, there is still more.”
#7 – My mother, she is the most giving-est person I know. She made us chocolate chip banana muffins.
#8 – My mom’s chocolate chip banana muffins are the best in the world.
#9 – I’ve mentioned this before, but spending $50 on six textbooks that were given a used value of $360 will ALWAYS make me happy.
#10 – I’m happy. I have tons of errands, a house to clean and a porch to paint tonight, but I’m happy. If you think this is a small matter…it is not.
