Thankful – Wk3

It’s all the little every day things that make life so extraordinary and this year I want to make sure I am appreciating and focusing more on them.  In an effort to remember to slow down, let the little things go, and enjoy every moment of this life I am going to share what I’ve been thankful for each week.

This week I’m thankful for …

    • Quality time with my familylast weekend we were in my hometown to celebrate my niece’s 9th birthday AND my mom’s birthday!  I don’t go home to visit as often as I use to so I cherish these family times together – especially around holidays/birthdays!
    • My father-in-lawwhile we were out of town our rear license plate fell off.  Luckily it was barely hanging on when we discovered it so we didn’t lose it.  When we got back home we got an estimate to get it repaired {the screws needed re-welded} that was outrageous.  My FIL came to the rescue and had it fixed for free yesterday!
    • Quick jewelry repaira few days ago I noticed one of the prongs on my wedding ring was lifted up and had a crack in it.  I immediately removed it and put it in my jewelry box until I could take it to get it fixed.  Yesterday afternoon I stopped by our local jewelry store where my ring was purchased and there were able to fix in the same day!  They eve were able to clean out all the hard water stains and dipped it in Rhodium – it looks brand new again! 
    • Local music venueslast night we went to see the one-man jam-band Keller Williams at Harlow's Nightclub in Downtown Sacramento.  His shows are always amazing and its a treat when he comes to our town so we don’t have to travel to see him :)
    • The rainwe need it.  Though, I wish we didn’t. 
    • Good friendsespecially those that you don’t see all that often but when you do it’s like no time has passed at all!
    • Inspiration … found in the least likely of places.

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend … rock your workouts, long runs or races :)

nice things to be thankful for. I'm thankful that I have the weekend off b/c I would've had to take it off with this cold now....also I can't believe how much car places charge for silly things = ridiculous. Good thing your FIL was there to save the day!

That's a lot to be thankful for and for someone who's gone a month without a wedding ring (during my sister's wedding of all times) same day service on jewelry is a blessing!
