New here? Thankful Thursday is something we’ve been doing in these COVID times; an exercise to help us hunt for the good that is in our lives and in the world, even in the midst of a pandemic.
It’s Thursday! Time to exercise our thankfulness muscles, everyone!
(Imagine me as a perky 1980s aerobics instructor, except I’m helping you be thankful instead of teaching you dated dance moves. Also, I’m making a rule that we are not wearing leg warmers.)
This week, I am thankful:
that our insurance covered a provider
I wasn’t sure they would cover this one, so I submitted the first two bills to see what would happen.
It took a long time, but they just cleared those two appointments. Woohoo!
So yesterday I sent the other four in, which means two checks should eventually be coming our way.
that a lot of my college credits are going to be useful
I have 31 credits from 1996/1997, and when I talked to an advisor yesterday, I found out that a fair number of them work as prerequisites for the nursing program.
So, I’m pretty happy about that! It’s nice to have my work pay off, even if it was 23 years ago.
that my mom gave me a good solid education
My 18/19 year old straight-out-of-homeschool self got straight As, so if I go back to college, I’ll be starting with a very good GPA.
Before college, my mom was my only teacher aside from my kindergarten teacher. So I figure she deserves most of the credit for grades.
that Zoe helped me do some decluttering
Zoe is a minimalist at heart, so she’s very good at decluttering. She helped me with the laundry room and the under-the-stairs closet, and they’re in much better shape now.
for how easy it is to give things away online
I love how simple it is to put the word out on the internet after I declutter.
I love to give my extra and unneeded stuff to someone who really can use it and Facebook groups make it really easy to keep it very local.
that my thumb is feeling better
My nail got a little separated from the skin at the tip, and it got infected. In fact, my whole thumb swelled up!
Happily, I was able to treat it at home, and it feels so, so much better now.
that I can cut up peaches again
My thumb got infected shortly after I bought a box of bruised peaches. And the thumb that got infected is an important one for cutting and peeling peaches.
Since my thumb is all better now, I’ve been able to slice and freeze all the rest of the peaches.
that seasons change
We’ve had some pretty hot and humid days this week, but I am feeling very zen about it because I know that the heat is coming to an end pretty soon.
Usually right about the time I think I can’t stand more heat, autumn arrives.
And right about the time I think I can’t stand any more gray and cold, spring arrives.
What are you thankful for this week?
