Weekly Gratitude

Weekly Gratitude is back! I have so much to be thankful for, and it never hurts to articulate (slash write) what those things are. This week I am grateful for:
  • New windshield wipers.  They are fantastic!  Super nice and work so well and with all the rain I have been driving in, I am so happy to have them!
  • Notes from my sister.  Rikka sends me happy little letters all the time and they always brighten my day.  Plus she is hilarious and I end up laughing to myself for hours from her one liners. 
  • That I have a job!  A real, big girl, I-have-business-cards-job.  The fact that this job is 2,000+ miles away from my friends and family is hard, but that doesn't mean that having said job is not a huge blessing and answer to prayer.
  • The fact that I was raised in a healthy and safe environment. The amount of people I have encountered in the last few months that have serious drug addictions that are ruining lives is so sad.  I am very naive when it comes to drugs, but I am so blessed that I was raised in a place and by a family that was not dependent or corrupted by heroin, cocaine, meth, or prescription pills.
  •  Keeps me entertained and laughing when I need a quick pick me up at work.
  • My wonderful friends that call and text me every week, because they know how bad I am at keeping in touch.  Their calls, texts, and emails mean so much to me.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
