Ten Things Thankful 07.20.2018

I was over at my friend Faith’s blog, Little Lord Oscar Dandelion, if you haven’t been over there, check her out, she has some amazing short stores and she’s just really cool too! She shared a post from Ten Things of Thankful and posted her own list of things to be thankful for, you can check her list out here. I think this is a wonderful idea, I have not been paying enough attention to the things in my life that I’m very grateful for, I think this will help me bring that front and center. I think it’d be super cook if you joined us on the challenge.

Ten Things of Thankful (I do want to point out that the rules say “Although the number ten is in the title, that is more of a suggestion than a hard and fast rule. Had a rough week and can only come up with one thing? That’s OK! “I’m thankful that situation X wasn’t worse” is a perfectly acceptable post.”

  • I’m thankful my surgery has been scheduled. (I’ll be having surgery on my wrist on the 9th of August, I’ll post more information on that soon)
  • Our house closes tomorrow….unless something unforeseen happens our house in NC will no longer be ours soon.
  • We started looking at houses here in Tucson this week and we already have a couple we are interested in…cross fingers we pick the perfect house, this will be our forever home.
  • My father-in-law has a car he’s letting me drive…and it’s a really cool car too.
  • I’m learning to decorate cookies, it’s an edible art form…cool.
  • I’ve been able to admit I might possibly have an eating disorder. I know I’ve written about this before, but it’s worse/different and I’m scared/desperate. Admitting this is the first step, I think, to getting better.
  • I was met by my niece and nephew today with the tightest hugs ever! I feel so loved.
  • I was able to play a game with my husband, his sister and her husband and I didn’t get competitive, I just found it so much fun, I laughed so hard…mostly at myself!
  • I went to the medical cannabis dispensary for the first time and it was very interesting, I learned a lot, and found out I need to learn much more.
  • I had a few hours yesterday with a great reduction in migraine pain. (I took a heck of a lot of medication to get to that point, but it sure was nice to have that break)

I think I could actually add a few more, like I’m very grateful we have A/C in this 112F+ days, I have a big bathtub, I have been able to cook often, I found a few new cooking shows….yes I can find all kinds of things to be grateful for….Oh I have one! Stuart took me to this little park today and it was gorgeous! A little oasis in the middle of the desert, it was amazing!

    I have so many things to be thankful for, too. I love my apartment, adore McFamily, look forward to Gramma Days, Annie has grown to trust me…so many things I just feel so blessed (even if my knee still hurts–lol!).

    I hope your house sells and you find the house that speaks to you. Let us know if you try the medical marijuana and if it helps! Happiness and good days to you! 🙂

  2. An excellent idea. My therapist has me writing done daily gratitudes — this list goes well with her homework.
    I will try and post a list on my blog.
    Thanks for sharing. You have much to be thankful for. Which is great. Remember those things on the bad days! Something good to hang on to.

  4. Hi Wendy, wow, you’ve got some good things happening now. What a lovely park and your in-laws sound nice. Sorry I was late to your post – I don’t get the post alerts to my inbox because I wouldn’t be able to cope with several 100s of them.

    I will be thinking of you on the day of your surgery. Love and best wishes, Faith xo


  5. Hey Wendy!
    Welcome to the TToT (Ten Things of Thankful).
    It is a most… (approaching mid-week, used most of my better vocab writing posts on the weekend)… good bloghop. (‘Yeah, thats the way to impress the new TToT participant…dazzle ’em with your writing chops’)>
    Seriously, welcome.
    Not only is the process of writing a list of Grats beneficial to the writer, (they) are good for us readers too.
    As bloghops go, the TToT has a great, open-minded approach to format… for which I am grateful for*.
    Have a good week.

    *man! see!??! Gotta write that down for next weekend’s post.

    We just moved into a new-to-us house that we plan to be in for a very long time, so I could identify with your buying/selling thankfuls. Good luck! (And, having spent 15 years in the desert, I could understand the “ahh” factor of finding water in an arid place!)

    Welcome to the TToT! Hope to see you here again! 🙂
