A thankful me - 12

Hi Ho everyone! Sure hope you had a great weekend. I woke up to the sound of rain Sunday. Best sound to wake up to, in my opinion. If it wouldn’t bring the cold, I would love it that much more.

Thanks for putting up with my craziness on Friday. I shouldn’t write posts after 10:30 with a horrible sweet tooth. Never ends well.

This week, I’m thankful for:
- my Dyson vacuum. Not to mention all my quality things that I bought when I was making the money, that have lasted for years. It pays to spend the extra money for quality than continuously paying for cheap repeatedly.
- the sound of wind chimes. I love the soft sound they make in the wind, so soothing.
- the generosity of friends. I’m thankful x10 for them.
- impromptu skype dates with my love. Believe it or not, we hadn’t ‘seen’ each other since I got home from Hawaii in February. Might have attributed to my moods lately.
- God always showing me that He’s there. I worry…and I always ask myself, why? He’s got it.
- the verse that is currently written on my whiteboard on my fridge.
Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

I happened to stroll through Pier One the other day and came across this atrocity. My thought is, really!?? Who thinks of this as a salt and pepper shaker? Although, I could see this as a perfect gag gift going back and forth between 2 people.

This is a map of all the states I’ve been in. I thought it fun way to see just exactly where I’ve been in color. I hope to one day have a world map that I can pin each location I’ve been. That’s my dream, any way.

I obviously need to make a trip up north… Go here if you’re interested in seeing yours, click the states>make it ‘large’>view map>right click and save. Easy peasy!

Pin It Now!

I think the S & P shaker it too funny, and yes, would make a hilarious gag gift!

Well, you need to come back to Oklahoma. I doubt you saw everything when you were here last.

(That was a joke, btw...there's nothing to see here...)

Still want to Skype on Tuesday afternoon? I'm pretty sure that will work out for me!

Ah, what I wouldn't give for a Dyson! Haha! I guess that makes me old to want a vacuum! :)

That psalm is one of my favorites!

love that map! What a great idea! and obviously you need to come to PA :)

I saw a 'scratch off' world map the other day, where you scratch off where you've been and it has information underneath. I'd be pointless for me as I have travelled so little, but I thought it was cool!

Indiana is looking awful lonely on that map...

And I still think that dog/hydrant is hilarious! Who buys that for serious?!

My fav verse right now is Lam 3:24...He's enough for me :)
