Because sometimes it's too easy to lose sight of all the blessings God gives, I'm taking a quick moment to thank Him for all the incredible things I've been given.
My wonderful husband and our sacramental marriage... even for the fight it took getting our marriage in order. I admit it was nice to fall in love all over again with him. He's still just so darn adorable, and he always makes me laugh. Watching him with Vince makes my heart smile and his hardworking spirit is unparalleled. He is a strong, reliable man who continuously makes me the happiest woman ever. *Dopey grin*
Then of course my little munch. I'm always thankful for his little face! Do you know that when he woke up from his nap he immediately sat up to kiss me? He then pulled me next to him on the bed for snuggles and kissed me over and over again. He's got me wrapped around his chubby little finger, and I wouldn't have it any other way. So thanks, Lord, for my perfect little munchkin.
Not a recent shot by any stretch, but it's probably the most recent with all of us together.
Anyway, thanks for my family, too. The relationship I've had with all of them has changed so drastically over the last few years. I look forward to spending time with them and relish the time we do get together. So thanks for them as well.
For my friends - now the rag-tag bunch above doesn't encompass them all. In fact, my two besties aren't even pictured up there. But this picture is pretty much exactly why I love those buddies whom I call friend. They are full of life, fun and joy. They're always there to put an arm around you, point out something ridiculous, or try to hang you with a scarf. Heh. I'm lucky to have people like Mary, Frank and Faith in my life... blessed beyond words.
My job. I STILL love my job. Even after the last two weeks that have beaten me mercilessly into a pulp, I STILL go in with the biggest smile on my face.
The above picture was taken about three hours after everyone else had left. The four other cars in the lot belonged to the cleaning staff. I took this photo from my boss's office when the cleaning staff told me the parking lot was all the proof I needed that I shouldn't still be sitting at my computer screen. I snapped the shot and laughed because ya know what? I love my job enough that I WANT to stay late. I WANT to give everything I've got because there, I know for a fact I'm useful. I know for a fact I'm doing something that makes a difference. I'm doing something that helps other people and will make a brighter future for someone, somewhere.
So no matter how terrible my days are - no matter how overwhelmed I am with the responsibilities that are handed over - I have that. And to boot, I've simply got the most amazing set of coworkers ever.
So yeah, God... thanks for them, too. You set me up with an incredible job with some of your best people. Thank you so much. :)
And my faith, Lord. You may not have given me the gift of tongues. You certainly didn't grant me wisdom or prophecy. You did, however, see fit to grant me an unshakable faith in You and Your Divine Plan. Without it, I don't know where I'd be or how I'd function. So thank you for the seed of faith you gave me and nurtured so carefully within me. I appreciate that more than any of the other blessings I've thus far listed.
So for these, and all other blessings, I give my most gracious thanks. You are amazing. I cannot possibly imagine a happier point in my life. Thank you. :)
