As per my post on Tuesday, I was definitely not thankful for the weekend that was in Townsville.
But, I am thankful for getting to spend so much time with A - I can't believe how much I miss him when we aren't together.
I am not thankful for the poor sleep that I have been getting - this was supposed to be the HUGE plus of A not being here, I wouldn't have to put up with his snoring.
But, I am thankful for Alfie and Rosie who, at 1.45 in the morning, are happy to leave their nice warm bed under the bar, and come inside and sleep on their inside blanket in the corner of my room because I am feeling like a big wuss and didn't want to be inside by myself.
I am not thankful about having to change out of my pj's last night to go and get K from the airport at 10pm 'cos they are so nice and comfy and I didn't want to embarrass her by arriving to collect her from the airport in my pj's (just in case I had to get out the car !!).
But, I am thanful that she is home again and I will once again, have some company when she isn't out with her friends / SES / work / studying !!!
I am not thankful for the cr*ppy day I had yesterday. Hiding behind a computer screen because I was crying so often is not the best or most productive way to spend the day !
But, I am thankful for the lovely e-mail that I received, from a lady I have never met, who has started a FB page called The Warm Fuzzies asking me about Project Brighten Someone's Day. And with that e-mail I told her about the project and then I realised that my day wasn't that bad after all.
I am not thankful for the fact that I was lazy when I got home and so didn't land up cooking dinner.
But, I am thankful that I made my breakfast smoothies and then had one of those for dinner which is so very much better for me that anything else I would have had i.e. a couple of cans of Coke !!!!
What are you thankful for today ?
Why not join in with Francesca and share
your thankfulness with all of us ?
Have the best day and hang in there, it is nearly the weekend !
TFTD : When life gives you every reason to be negative, think of one good reason to be positive. There's always something to be grateful for.
