Thankful Thursday | A Weekly List of Gratitude

I read a weather report on my weather app that said we might be getting a little snow this weekend.  Yep, snow in March.  And yes, it’s over 70 degrees out right now.  Besides the mornings, temps here haven’t really been cold enough for snow.  So, of course I’m not getting my hopes all the way up that we’ll see snow on Saturday, but it would be nice.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

What I Am Thankful For This Week

My Mom |  Grandma C saw another birthday this week!  I feel so blessed to still have my mom (not be confused with my Ma) here with me.  I’m even more thankful that my kids still have their Grandma.  My grandparents passed away shortly after I was born and I never got the opportunity to experience the bond my children have with my mom.  It’s something that bothered me as kid since most of my friends had grandparents who were still living.  

Consistent Warm Weather |  I don’t want jinx us but I think our pneumonia weather days are about to be behind us.  *Praise dance*   After all of the sick germs we had flying around our home last month, I’m so thankful for all the consistently warm weather we’ve had this week.  No wearing heavy winter coats on Monday and then t-shirts and sandals on Tuesday this week.  It’s because of this consistent weather that I’m doubtful we’ll see that snow on Saturday.  Let’s keep moving forward Mother Nature, not backwards. 

Unexpected Encouragement |  Staying positive and believing in myself are two things that I still struggled with as a teenager and still struggle with from time to time as a 31 year old.  There are a few things that I want to do, but I’ve been a bit paralyzed or stuck.  This week I found myself stumbling across unexpected sources of encouragement that I know are signs meant just for me.  Just this morning my cousin posted the following words of motivation on her social media page:

“Never be afraid to try something new.  Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic.”

At the end of the day I have to start somewhere.  I have to try new things in order to achieve my dreams and goals.  I can’t reach my fullest potential by shying away from the unfamiliar.  Listen to me, if you’ve been wanting to do something, do it.  Stop the excuses, overcome the fear and tune out the negative voice in your head.  Go for it because life is too short to waste time waiting.

What are your thankful for this week?  Let me know in the comments.

    A belated happy birthday to your mom. Like your children, my kids have a great relationship with their grandma (my husband's mom). I have to admit to being a smidge jealous. LOLThis week, I'm happy that my sister and I were able to celebrate our 44th birthday together and that my husband and I were able to celebrate our 22nd anniversary.
