Today I'm thankful:
--that I get a week of downtime next week. These past few have been NON STOP and I am so ready to chill out a little--and that fact that it'll be spent with my sister makes me crave it even more!
--to live in a country where vaccinations are easily available for my child. They're no fun, but she's healthy and I have to worry less about extremely scary and threatening diseases.
--for the bonds I have with my students. Nothing makes my day more than them coming up and giving me a huge hug, excited to see me (except when they explain what they remember learning from me--that makes it even better!)
--for a best friend whom I can be completely honest and myself around, and she won't think I'm crazy for it.
--for the cooler weather!
--for the blessed news that a sweet friend of mine, after a long wait, a lot of prayers, and some struggles, is going to have a baby. The pregnancy is going well so far, and she just found out this week that it's a boy! Glory to God and His abounding grace and blessings!
--that Christmas is coming, and I'm not the only looney one who's ready to start decorating and shopping and playing carols!
Be grateful, give thanks.
