Thursday Thankfuls

I haven't done a Thursday Thankfuls post in a few weeks, so I am way overdue.

I read a great quote this week that said, "Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more." - Brother David Steindl-Rast

I, for one, want to be both grateful and happy.

Here's a few things I'm thankful for:
  • I'm thankful for God and His amazing love for me (and you).
  • I'm thankful for the real meaning of Easter.
  • I'm thankful for my husband. He works hard and doesn't always get appreciated for it. Love you, babe. (He's a lurker on my blog and likes to bring it to my attention that I "hardly EVER talk about him".)
  • I'm thankful for Melissa coming back to the land of blogging! ☺ I missed you!
  • I'm thankful for tomorrow being Friday! April 15th and the days around it are not a fun time in an accounting department. Thank you Lord for bringing us through another tax season. It was a little touch and go there for a while, but we made it!
  • I'm also thankful for my Starbucks Gold Card and for the good people at the Starbucks Gold Lab for feeling generous and bestowing upon me 5 extra dollars which was loaded to my Gold Card for me to use at my earliest convenience...which will be today. (Was that a run-on sentence? If so, I apologize.) I'm sure this show of appreciation has nothing to do with the amount of times I frequent their establishment(s).
  • One last token of gratitude, I am thankful for a couple of good friends who have so graciously agreed to have a Twilight "gathering" with me, which includes, but is not limited to playing the Twilight board game and talking about all things Twilight. I was in desperate need of a Twilight "outlet". I have a couple things to show you...come back tomorrow for some Friday Confessions.

Hope you're having a great week!

What are you thankful for?

Soooo down with your first 3, although my hub sometimes complains when I post about him, saying "that's not the way it happened.!" (Oh yes it is!)

I don't think your Starbucks sentence is a run on (but I'm long winded and not a good judge of things short and succinct!)

I am thankful for people like you, who helped pull me out of my hermit-like blogging existence!

Today I can also be thankful for Starbucks, since it's a cold rainy day and that's what I am drinking as I write this. :)

Do you realize how hard it is for me to concentrate on, and absorb your deep, meaningful quotes and posts when Young MC is hollerin' at me to Bust a Move?

I'm just sayin'.

I love your thankful list though! I'm down with most of them (don't drink coffee though, so kinda clueless on the starbucks one!)
