Thursday Thanks Tank #119
I am thankful for YOU. Why on earth are you reading my blog? I haven't posted in week. What made you drop by? You don't have to answer that. I am thankful you take the time to visit my little spot in blogland.
Where have I been? I have been busy... too busy. I am overloaded, spinning out of control with activity. My life (this current spin cycle I am on) represents "Gravity of Motion" right now. I have been struggling to keep up with everything that I have on my plate. When I have had free moments, I have pulled myself away from the computer. Never fear, I am still blogging. It just can't be a daily devotion right now.
I am committed to cultivating a thankful spirit. So, it's Thursday night and I am thinking about thankfulness. It's hard not to think about love this week. Following that train of thought (just slightly), here are some things related to my love that I am thankful for:
No bake oatmeal cookies: Have you had those no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies? These were, perhaps, the first cookies I gave my husband. We were in high school. I made him cookies. It was sweet. Except, he said they looked like turd cookies. I smile just thinking about that now.
My Promise Ring: I have a promise ring. My husband gave it to me 4 years ago on Valentine's Day. He was in Iraq. He sent it to me and promised to do everything possible to come home safely.
Wow, there you go- 2 things- turd cookies and a promise ring and I am stuck. I can't think at all.
I'll let you think about that. Maybe it's a good thing I have been slow to post lately.
Hey, I'm just wondering how those "Turd cookies" would taste with sunbutter instead of peanut butter. Bet my boys would love those. (Anyone tried that?)
