Thankful Thursday

I know that I am on a blogging hiatus, but I can't pass up the opportunity to show some gratitude. Because, in the wise words of someone named Melodie Beattie:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

This week I am thankful for:

1. Kids who are AWESOME at the dentist. Once they are in that chair with headphones and a movie, they don't make a peep! Even my 4 year old. I usually just sit in the waiting room and read a book while they are getting teeth cleaned and cavities filled.

2. Birthday Parties. They give me an excuse to get together with family.

3. Piccolo Brothers Pizza. Nuff said.

4. Blemish Control Toner & Acne Treatment Gel. TMI?

5. Being able to work from home.

6. Blogging friends who (even though I am a slacker this week) still let me read and comment on their blogs.

7. Creative people like Tib who let me steal the Thankful Thursday logo.

What are you Thankful for?

If that is TMI, then my story about my nasty, horrible boil is like TMI times infinity.

What is piccolo brothers pizza? You need to do a post about them.

I am thankful for friends who still love you even when you do something stupid.

I will be thankful when you come off of your blogging hiatus.

That was a short hiatus!
Dido on the Piccolo thing. They better never go out of business. What will we eat at every family get together??

Technically it was about 9 days hiatus. But I was having withdrawals. Real life IS highly over-rated.
