Thankful Thursdays

So I got this great new idea from my friend Jarah's blog and I thought I would carry it on. I have wanted to start this for quite some time but have never had the time on a Thursday. I know it's only Monday night but I thought it would be better than never. I feel so grateful that I need to write some of the things down. So, here goes...
my husband
capstone being over (after tomorrow)
Elizabeth Rhondeau's mission experience that she so eloquently described
the paper chain on my floor that is a nightly reminder that I'm about to graduate
how good my niece makes me feel when i get to her house and she is waiting for me on the bottom step
the Gospel
my job
sleepovers at the in laws so i can sleep in an extra hour
the kids at PCMC
my mom saying 'this is your mother' when she leaves me voice messages
phone calls from my dad
how amidst all this chaos my house is actually coming together
the bachelor to keep me company while Jonny is out workin late
bunco night
good chats with old friends
how after a late night of work Jon wakes me up at 3 in the morning to kiss and hug me goodnight just because i asked him to
rice bags
my blanket
cute headbands to jazz up my hairstyle when i haven't showered
Jarah's blog
Hobby Lobby
how the laundry magically is done by the time i get home
Books, Books, and more Books (which I will again be aquainted with in a very short amount of time)
amazing support from a loving family
And those are just a few. I could go on and on but I should probably get some rest before my last and final shift of capstone. Feel free to follow along and continue on this tradition of what they call project: cultivate thankfulness. It really does make you feel better even during the worst of days.
