I made a thanksgiving resolution to find something to be thankful for every day until next Thanksgiving. Here’s what I am thankful for this week!
Thursday: That the water pump on my car wore out in the summer rather than the winter. In the summer I can fill the radiator with water for free until we can afford to fix it, rather than buying two jugs of antifreeze a day!
Friday: Packages in the mail! I won a cupcake pop mold from Five Great Kiddos and got it in the mail, along with two bags of candy melts, chocolate jimmies, and lollipop sticks. I also got some extras I wasn’t expecting, like cloth flower pins from The Pleated Poppy,and a matching set of paper goodies including a journal, greeting cards, recipe cards, magnetic listpad and grommet tags. Thank you, Susan, you are too generous! I can’t wait to try the mold out and make some cupcake pops with it. You all know I’m crazy about cake pops!
Saturday: That the move from our old church location to the new went smooth and fast. We were all done by 2 PM!
Sunday: The tremendous blessing of our new church building, which we worshiped in for the first time. We have more room than we need, definitely plenty of room to grow into, it is in great shape, and we got it for almost 1/4 of the cost of its value.
“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Monday: That my sister got an order for 5,000 lip balms shipped by the deadline. (Danielle owns a gift boutique where she sells her own bath/beauty products which you can also order online.) She enlisted my help among many others and when I saw how much had to be done in such a short amount of time, I was a little worried about it, but we got ‘r done!
Tuesday: That I was able to use up the rest of an open package of ground venison before it went bad. That would have killed me-I hate wasting food, especially good food!
Wednesday: Remember that test I took a while back? Well, I got a good score that was high enough for them to consider me for a career (permanent) position and I had my interview this morning. I won’t know for sure for two weeks, but the interview went well and I expect to be permanent by August 1. :)
This is so positive:) I need to take a lesson from you and focus on all I have to be thankful for.
Great job on that test!! I hope the permanent thing happens–that would be great for you.
Congratulations on your high score, V!!! You really do deserve to be a permanent employee, you’ve worked so hard for it! :) thanks for all your help with finishing the big lip balms order!
Love, your sis,
EVERYONE LOOK! MY SISTER LEFT A COMMENT! THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED AND THEREFORE I MUST DRAW EVERYONE’S ATTENTION TO IT. THIS IS MY SISTER, WITH WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED. lol
Congrads on the test!!! I knew you could do it!!! I hope you get your car fixed, and soon! It looks like you got a nice little goodie box :)
Packages in the mail are so much fun — they always make my day!
A HUGE congrats to you on your test score!!! So happy for you, Veronica!
Congrats on everything! That is a lot to be thankful for! I would like to get packages like that in the mail. :)
