Thankful Thursday – Before Dark

I want to be thankful more than just on Thanksgiving. I want to be thankful more often, so maybe Thursdays sound good. I read about the idea at Staci’s Notebook, a great blog I discovered recently. The idea is to dedicate Thursday’s post to highlight things you are thankful for.  I like the routine of doing that throughout the year, not just at Thanksgiving or during the holiday season. Sort of like stopping to smell the roses.

Today I am thankful I was able to make it home before dark, just barely!  I don’t do well being cooped up in a cubicle all day, so this was a BIG deal for me.

home before darkOn the other side of our yard was the moon rising in a deepening blue sky.

I am also thankful that one of my college roommates reached out to me today! We lived together for four-plus years in college, and then sort of stayed in touch for a few years. But it’s been six years since I’ve heard from her, so seeing an email from her in my inbox this morning was wonderful! I am thankful for those everlasting female relationships that can be re-kindled after life has gotten in the way for a few years.

What are you thankful for today or this week?

    I love the moon photo. I have tried to capture one many mornings and it never turns out good. I am usually in a rush though too so that’s probably why.

    Hope you have a good weekend!!
