There are so many reasons to smile
...turned down one job offer and one interview. It might sound crazy considering how long I've been waiting for a job, but sometimes a girl (a married couple) has to think responsibly and know when to say "no thanks," like when the job pays minimum wage and doesn't offer benefits at all or when I'd be working 3rd shift hours.
...mailed "change of address" cards. Finally.
...made one too many trips to the new house, which was awesome because I got to see Hub more than usual, but not so awesome because of gas prices. Seriously, it'd be cheaper to ride a horse, if you don't mind getting there at a much slower pace. I would, personally, love to arrive in the parking lot and say, "Gosh. Where should I park my horse today? All the good stalls are taken." harhar
...ate lunch on campus with Sis and Baby Nephew, two of the prettiest people I know. It made crawling out of bed on a sleepy Friday morning totally worth it. If this kid was made of chocolate, I'd gobble him up in a heartbeat. His smile is contagious.
...felt incredibly grateful and excited that my parents finally got city water for their house. They have used well water for as long as I can remember. I grew up using well water, which (in case you don't know) is natural water from the ground, but filtered through a tank before it enters the house. I like well water, honestly, but considering all the problems and expenses that have recently developed with having well water -- tanks, sand filters, etc. -- it is a major blessing for my parents to have city water. We are all happy with it.
...was inspired when I read this: What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday? Yes, I want to thank God every.single.day. for everything I have, especially the things I take for granted. I am so very blessed.
