So very thankful

  1. For traveling mercies! No, I’m not in Nigeria but on Monday afternoon I decided to make the four-hour round trip drive to the USA. Alone. It was a bright day when I left but making the drive back at 10pm in the dark, and dealing with what they call highway hypnosis was not funny! God spared my life and I’m truly thankful.
  2. Related to the first is not having to pay at the border! I could lie and say I charmed the border guard but I have a theory that men like him are generally easygoing and let people through! If only there was a way to see the face of the border guard before choosing which line to get into; I think I’m very good at gauging which ones will let you through!
  3. Money only has value when you spend it, and I keep reminding myself of that as my account dwindles, due in this case to wedding-related expenses! I’m thankful for the job that makes it possible to spend.
  4. I hosted a surprise bridal shower for my sister this past Sunday and it was a success! My sis prides herself on being very observant but she had no clue this was going to happen. It was a great time and I’m glad she was surprised. I’m especially thankful for my friends who attended and humbled me by their generosity to my sis.
  5. I’m thankful that I followed my intuition and reached out to my brother, the one that I have a difficult relationship with. Although things may not change in the long-term as a result of this, I am hopeful (and that’s new!).

What are you thankful for?
