Monday Moments of Gratitude

This morning I posted my March in Review post with my bloggy buddy Deena.  And I thought I'd post again this afternoon with Shaunacey for her Monday Moments of Gratitude!  Because really... who doesn't like two-fers?!?  These are not of the "spirits"variety, but feel free to enjoy a glass of wine while reading.  I debated posting again, but I didn't post last week and kinda have a lot to be grateful for!

This morning I am back to work after Spring Break!  Over the break, I discovered that I really do enjoy my time off!  I sometimes think I could actually be one of those people that doesn't work!  HA!  But a mortgage and a shopping habit that I have yet to tone down, snaps me back to reality!  And I really am grateful to have a job, period, because I know so many out there are looking for work and struggling right now!

But  I am grateful that I have a job that allows me time off. Teaching is not always the easiest profession but when it gets stressful or out of hand, you know there's always a break to countdown to!  I complain about work a lot and am always counting down to something (and don't get much sympathy from anyone...because ya know...I get summers off and all) but it's also a great time to recharge....even if the second you walk back into the building, it feels like you were never really off at all.  So the countdown to summer starts now!

I am also grateful this week for my family.  Easter Sunday was the first time all of us, (with the exception of my mom and dad), got together since January.  I feel like now that my parents are not around to keep us all together, we don't see each other that often anymore.  And that's ok!  Because it just makes the time we do see one another that much more special and fun!  And the family grew by one!  With the edition of this sweet girl, who I introduced you all to on Friday!  This is my sister's family's new puppy!

A few more moments...

I am thankful for the time I got to spend with my besties this weekend for a girls' day!  It was a super fun day of laughs, jokes, pizza, Shopkins and Frozen Surprise Slides!  Like Chutes and Ladders, just all Frozen-y.  And Aunt Katie won a game!!  Woo hoo!!  (because Aunt Katie likes to play far!! HA!)
#bestiesforever...and an elk!

I am so grateful that my friend who spent the entire break sick, is on the mend!

I'm already looking for the little moments in this week to be grateful for.  Who and what makes you grateful?  Let me know!

Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful week!

  4. I love puppy pictures! So cute, and chutes and ladders is probably one of my least favorite, I prefer Candy Land, hehe. Great things to be thankful for. I'm thankful for my parents living close to help out while Mr. is away.

  5. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
