Day 24 of 30 Days of Thanks- GPS

I’m so thankful for GPS.  God bless whoever came up with this concept.  And I’m even more grateful that with the last update on my iPhone I can get turn by turn directions spoken to me through my radio speakers.  I’m no good at directions or learning my way around so I rely heavily on GPS.  It’s so much better than having to constantly look at my phone with its list of directions or a piece of paper with directions written down on it.  And much safer too.  So thank you GPS creator!

Day 20 of 30 Days of Thanks- Small Surprises

It doesn’t take much to get me excited.  I love small surprises and am thankful when one appears.  Like when CSP comes home with a treat for me from the store or like what happened today when we received a surprise check in the mail for $22.  You know those emails you get talking about class action law suits but you never think you’ll see a payout?  That’s what the check is for.  And now we’re $22 richer! And for that I’m thankful!

Day 19 of 30 Days of Thanks- Talent

I am thankful for the talents God gave me.  I love the quote from Erma Bombeck: When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.
I try and use the talents God gave me daily.  I knit, paint, make jewelry (not as much as I’d like), write (not as much as I should), etc.  Sure, there are some talents I wish I had.  I wish I could carry a tune.  I wish I could dance, even a little.  And I’ve always been in awe of people who can do standing back flips!  But in the end I’m very thankful for the talents I have and really enjoy using them!

Day 18 of 30 Days of Thanks- My era

I am thankful to have been born when I was.  Not only because had I been born in another era I wouldn’t have met CSP & all my friends etc, but because of modern day luxuries.  God bless those people who lived in pioneer days and even before.  I wouldn’t have done well with no deodorant, hair product, mascara, lip gloss, moisturizer, you get the picture.  Not to mention medical advancements.  I surely would have died in my early thirties had I been born 100 years ago!  When my fallopian tube twisted and became engorged it got the doctors excited at the hospital- and that was in the mid 2000s!   They surely wouldn’t have known what to do with me in the 1800s!  And that was just the start of my surgical adventures!
