Feeling Kramer-ish... & Thanks Tank

Remember on Seinfeld how Kramer would always "slide into a room," with his arms extended, and sort of bouncing his head around? A dramatic entrance, if you would...

Well, that's how I sort of feel Spring has introduced itself to my family... sliding in sideways, with its arms extended, bobbleing around saying, "I'm hear!" and with my family being so sick since February, I feel as though I totally missed Spring's graceful entrance, the buds peaking through the grass, the leaves coming out green, the grass turning lush ... and it is just smacking me in the face now, saying... "HEY! I'm here! Been here! Waiting for YOU to catch up with me! Allergies on the way... Can you feel it?" Anyway ... I just thought I'd share that with you before I share my Thanks Tank filling for the week.

Pam at Without Fear hosts the weekly Thursday Thanks Tank, and let me just say... it is a wonderful way to end the week and start the weekend. Especially if you've had a tough go at it -- finding things to be thankful about will change your perspective on life!

  • I'm thankful that we are all on the mend. It could have been worse, but God's protective hand was over us.
  • I'm thankful that the trees are budding, blooming, and sharing their pollen with my persnickety nose -- it only means Spring is here, and the beauty that comes along with it is popping up everywhere.
  • I'm thankful for Cheesecake Factory's Lemoncello Cream Torte, and even MORE thankful that Costco sells it in the frozen section!!! Sooooo good.
  • I'm thankful for a job that is challenging and uses my brain as much as it does -- even though half the time I end up scratching my head in confusion because I HATE algebraic equations. Just the same, it feels good at the end of the day.
  • I'm thankful that our Pastor is turning the tables on us in Wednesday evening Bible Study, and challenging us to study the scripture and find the lesson within the scripture.
  • Last, however never, EVER least... I'm very, VERY thankful for my husband. No, we don't have the perfect relationship, but when I hear how the men speak of their wives at work, and when I hear how they never give their wives little "I love you" gifts, or cook dinner for them, or clean the kitchen, or vacuum, or toss in a load of laundry because it's "her job"... Well, it makes me appreciate his thoughtfulness even more!
Have you given thought to what you're thankful for???
