Thankful Thursday

This Thursday, I'm thankful for...

1. For the grace and protection of God. Not sure if you've heard about the failed attack on the Federal Reserve bank in NYC yesterday, if you haven't read (here). My husband works across from that building, so I don't even want to imagine otherwise. Just so grateful for God's protection on my family.

2. I'm thankful for friends, great friends, life long friends. I spent last weekend in Atlanta with one of my dearest, Nanette. A year has past since we last saw each other, but it felt like just yesterday. It was a great weekend and long over due. We spent the weekend catching up, eating, shopping and more shopping. There's nothing like going shopping with your girlfriends. Honestly, I think the content of my luggage doubled by the time I left. I'm grateful for time spent with a great friend.

3. Packet oatmeal. Yea, you read that right. For some reason I can never wake up early enough to sit and each breakfast before leaving home. So I eat breakfasts in the car if it's a bagel or toast and oatmeal if at work. I know I can always grab a packet of oatmeal and head out. No need to worry about cup, spoon or milk because all that is available at work. This thing called oatmeal is very handle that on some days it graduates from breakfast to lunch. Not because I'm not hungry or trying to be healthy (comment someone made to me while preparing it in the break room once) which wouldn't be a bad thing, but because I didn't have time to pack lunch and almost never carry cash to buy food at the cafeteria. So on those days it's my life saver. I could drive out of the office to buy food, but I'm just too lazy for that, so I settle for a packet of oatmeal.

What are you thankful for today?
