Friday Five of Thanks

This week the list is simple: five things you're thankful for.
  1. The Bug Man called me this morning to say he loved me. This is unusual for a man so very practical. (Although he did say he'd be late getting home from work. But on the other hand, he suggested ordering a pizza for dinner.)
  2. Soda Chicky is starting to enjoy school again. Finding her place in high school, with her friends at other schools has been hard. She seems to be settling in after a tough few weeks. I am thankful she is more adaptable than her old mother.
  3. That I have work that I enjoy and colleagues who make the day blessed.

  4. That my parents are still having fun in their retirement. They make it look so good!
  5. That I didn't run out of gas on the way to work this morning. I ignored the little red light and just kept on going. Definitely gotta get gas before I go home though. Bug Man hates it when I call and tell him I've done something really stupid. Sheesh! ;-)

For all these things, dear Lord, thank you!

Yes, definitely be thankful for not running out of gas! A big pain!

I play it too close on the gas, often. No wonder I like you!

Not running out of gas--that's a big one (happened to me only once, on Christmas morning across the street from a gas station). Oh, excellent play all around; looking forward to reading more of your blog as I agree with Songbird(?) it's gotta be the best blog title anywhere!

I really pushed it yesterday and came half way home before getting gas. This was very foolish- but once again, I made it to my destination. I'm thinking this is a metaphor for some other things in my life.... Sigh...

Thanks for the compliments to my blog title. Bug Man says, "But you're not really talking. It's the internet." The man really could use a shot of whimsy! But since he's going to go do the grocery shopping this morning, I think I'll cut him some slack.
