Thursday Thankfuls

I think I’ve forgotten how to blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Every time I sit down to do it, I either get distracted, get very stuck, go completely blank on what to write, feel overwhelmed with it, or I am unable to write without sounding like I’m feeling sorry for myself. heh! Thus, no blogging.

But yes. Much as transpired since that last “Red Day” post. There have been numerous red days since then (My definition ofย  a red day: a day that can be vibrant, even when unhappy curveballs get thrown at you) All I can say is when God decides to test the choosing joy factor, well He REALLY DOES. I feel like saying, God, I get the point… You can stop anytime now!! It’s no wonder that I dream of rollercoaster rides with strange meanings. Ah well, there’s obviously something in it for me to learn, so no use getting all depressed. *smiles*

Today I’m thankful for:

*The ability to taste food!! This may sound silly and small, but believe me – if you go for several days without tasting or smelling a thing, this is huge. HUGE, I’m telling you. I have realized anew just how thankful I am that God made food with taste, because otherwise eating would be such a boring, wooden chore. I need to go eat some birthday cake now that I can taste it. ๐Ÿ˜€

*Back roads that aren’t icy or snowy. (Yes, I was telling myself this over and over today as the horrible mud pulled me all over the road today) But it’s not snow, which means I most likely won’t get stuck. ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Old cars that still run, even if it is the “Hot Rod Honda” and has a motor that sounds like I’m trying to be a cool redneck & has dried peppers in the backseat & the radio doesn’t work & it has a gas cover thing that gets stuck and makes you look like an idiot at the gas station cuz the dumb thing won’t OPEN so you can pump the gas. *ahem* (And Dad, I’m not being unappreciative of your car – just so you know! ;))

*A sweet little brother who gives the sweetest kisses! (Mostly because I beg him for them ;)) And he sang the cutest little 3-year-old rendition of “happy birthday” to me four times! I’m such a sappy big sister. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll post the picture just because it makes me laugh! One of our MANY kissing picture fails. hehe! Poor patient little guy.

*Brothers that buy me chocolate and promise to take me to Olive Garden (!!!!!). A Mom who bought roses and made Tuesday special. A sister who made a sweet card for me. And a Dad who’s coming home in a few days!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

*I am not sick with a terminal illness… and I can breathe out of my nose today… and the light at the end of the tunnel is nearer. ๐Ÿ˜€

*I am free and not in a prison! (More on that to come) And I can feel things… abeit joy, pain, struggle, happiness, uncertainty, etc. It means I’m ALIVE! (And that’s always a good thing ;))
