"He's still working on me,
to make me who I ought to be.
It took Him just a week to make the moon and stars,
the sun and the Earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must beeee,
'cause He's still workin' on me! "
Please imagine me singing that, and it will certainly give you a smile. But nevertheless, I AM thankful that He is working on me. And that is a bonus one for today. ;)
Today I am thankful for:
1. My crock pot. Having dinner ready at lunch time is just the most.marvelous.thing. Today is "dance" (I don't love dance, just being honest, and I am not the one dancing!) and it is at the most inconvenient time. 5:00pm-6:00pm. And did I mention it is half an hour away? Oh wait, I am being *thankful* not ungrateful! Anyway, walking in the door at 6:30pm to a fully prepared meal? That, my friends, is definitely something for which I am very thankful!
2. And in that vein, can I also just say my dishwasher? We lived in an apartment for our first year of marriage that had a dishwasher-me! I abhor hand washing dishes. So, while that was over 12 years ago, I still am daily grateful for the modern marvel that cleans my dishes (mostly) for me.
3. Since I seem to have a theme going of kitchen appliances, I will just round out the list with a last one. I love my blender, it enables me to get the healthiest meal of my day, my morning smoothie. They may seem gross to others, but that fruit and veggie packed beverage is a dream come true for me, since I hate chewing before about 11 am!
Did you go beyond the kitchen for your lists today? Be sure to share here, or on the Facebook page! Gratitude begets gratefulness, you know, so tell someone what you are thankful for and see what they have to say!
