I thought it was about time for one of those positive, uplifting posts. So without further ado, here is my list (with a little visual help from Pinterest).
I'm thankful for Jesus and for finding my relationship with him. Although I've just started out on this journey, I find it so comforting and eye opening. It's crazy, but when I became a mother I just knew
I had to deepen my understanding and my relationship with him. It's like a switch flipped, and I'm so glad that it did. I have a LOT to learn, but I am thankful that I am finally on the right path.
I am thankful that we got to go to the Cardinals game at Miller Park last night... and that my hometown team WON! :) We went with another couple - a guy Jake works with and his wife. What's more - I actually liked them! Not that I don't usually like people or anything, but the conversations weren't forced or awkward or anything. So that's a good thing! They live close to where we will be moving -- and she is pregnant, so they will soon know the lifestyle that we are currently living (they are also from out of state - with no family close by). Maybe we've found our first hang-out-kind-of-friends since moving here? ;)
I am thankful that Labor Day weekend is almost here! We're heading home tomorrow to see friends and family. It's MUCH needed since we haven't seen anyone for almost 2 months! I need to go to my parents' house and be mommy'ed, eat a few big meals and see my brothers. We'll also be heading out to Jake's house on Saturday - I have a bridesmaid's dress fitting, and then I'm sure we'll spend the rest of the day enjoying the outdoors. I'm super excited.
I'm thankful for iced coffee - how did I forget about it?! I was driving to work the other day and just thought, Ohhhh my GOSH. Iced coffee! Duh!
And I've gotten it most days since. Sadly, today's delicious Starbucks delicacy is now gone. I just took the last sip.
I'm thankful that I only have 24 days left at this job! :) HA! I may work when we move and I may not. There is a temp job opening up where Jake works in the kind of work that I do now -- that just PAYS a lot better than the job that I have now. I think that this would probably be a good thing...even though I'd rather return to being a SAHM. BUT. Yes, of course there's a but. Since it's a temp job, our thoughts are this: We could think more seriously about that sibling for Logan... I could just work that job through the pregnancy, perhaps? That would allow us to pay down some of that ugly debt that likes to stare at me and also give us a nice down payment for the bigger car we will be needing with another bee. 2 bees, 2 dogs and 2 adults... Yikes! We'd definitely need a bigger car (SUV!) for our 5 hour trips home... So we'll see how that situation plays out. I'll keep you posted.
And lastly, I'm thankful for you coming to visit me! I absolutely love my readers. You guys rock. Have a great Thursday!
