I’m thankful for 31

Monday. It always wipes away everything from before and leaves you with a clean slate.

A new start to a new week, with hopes of a better turnout than the one before. That’s what I’m hoping for this day.

Last week was a tough one for me. The first full week I was back home from Hawaii. What possibly was, the longest week of my life. I’ve had long weeks before, but last week drug on like its never drug before.

During the many ups and downs, but mainly downs, I struggled to find the few things I was thankful for. But I did. Because I have amazing people around me, who filled up my time to keep the lonely thoughts temporarily at bay.

This week, I’m thankful for:

- my unusual busy schedule throughout the week.

- physical therapy for my feet. Finally getting started on it with a long ways to go. I admit, needing to explain to multiple therapists that each foot had a surgery with 4 affected areas making it a total of 6 surgeries in all, gets pretty annoying. They just can’t seem to comprehend the need for therapy on BOTH feet at once. But it’s a test a patience that I’m working through.

- my sweet friends who let me get my newborn baby fixes by letting me hold their 3 week and 5 week olds. My left bicep was sore for days afterward. ha!

- awesome skype conference dates with LeAnna and Tatiana. We “purposely” did a throw back to the 3-way phone calls only on skype since we weren’t able to video conference. What turned into a 15-20 minute max conversation, turned into a 2 hour one. Can’t wait to do it again, only with video!!

- all the twitter comfort during my boo hoo tweets. You all are the best.

My weekend faired a lot better. There’s nothing like getting in the word and talking it out with God to really help soothe my soul. Now it’s just a matter of staying close to Him so I won’t fall off the deep end again. That’s the trick.

Do you see Monday as a way to start fresh? To let things go and start over?

Psalm 139:23-24
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.

So glad you're finding thankfuls even though life has been icky. I have a love/hate relationship with mondays...sometimes they are a jolt back to reality after an awesome weekend, and other times they are just like you said-a new start. Praying for you this week!

You're amazing. Why have you had so many surgeries on your feet? Can I ask that? I hope you're okay and that PT is working and not too painful
