Thankful Thursday

I wanted to start this Thankful Thursday thread last week, but as it happens, life got in the way. So today will mark the first of these Thankful Thursday posts.

I used to write things I was grateful for on a daily basis, but sometimes it's hard to post every single day (not that I can't think of anything, but just that time is against me) so I'll wrap up from the past week and list them all on a Thursday :-)

Today, Thursday, July 29 2010 was my birthday. It was not the birthday I planned and hoped for and it certainly wasn't one of the best I've had. However, I always believe there are things we can find to be grateful for. So, here goes:

I'm thankful for:

  • ...having a peaceful sleep last night and waking up refreshed this morning.
  • ...having a good teaching day.
  • ...Mrs Ham & her husband inviting me out for a farewell dinner on Monday.
  • ...Mrs Ham taking care of me when I was ill on Tuesday.
  • mum recovering and using every bit of energy to get well.
  • dad for being so positive and reassuring.
  • brother for being the humour in my life.
  • dad calling me at 4am (SA time) to sing Happy Birthday to me :)
  • ...the security guard who helped me at the bank this afternoon.
  • ...Mrs Bae treating me to lunch this afternoon.
  • ...all the birthday messages, emails and texts I received today.
  • ...a phonecall from an old & dear friend (from Grade 4 - Anthea)
  • ...the concern & friendship of JK (in South Africa) ^_^*
  • ...Godmother, Aunty Bonz' unconditional love for me (and my family)
  • health
  • ...air conditioner
What are you thankful for today?

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues. -Cicero
