Tuesday I felt thankful to live in a country where we get a say in what happens and who leads. I was also thankful to go to the polls and find so many friends there exercising their right to vote. It reminded me that I am blessed to associate with many good people.
|My polling place was at our elementary school and was a little, really warm (by afternoon) room|
This is not my polling place. I didn't really take a camera with me.
Tuesday evening I was thankful for music, and particularly for the way good music affects me. I was able to play my flute for a while, and it helped me to feel less stress and more peace -- not that I have much to be stressed over -- it was late in the day and I create my own stress at night time!
Wednesday morning I was feeling thankful for my girls, and their gift for listening. I called Trisa and she chatted with me, and helped me feel more ready to meet the day. I could have called Kayli or Tia too and they would have been happy to listen and to chat.
|I need to get pictures of my girls together! Tia is probably feeling like her Harry Potter pose is stalking her! Sorry Tia!|
I was also thankful for my friend Michele who called. I had been missing her, and was glad she called to talk to me.
|This is Michele. She's great. I'm sure she totally won't mind that I stole her picture from facebook!|
Wednesday I picked up Connor from school and went up to Garland to help my parents who were loading up a moving truck for their move to St. George. I was thankful for Connor and his willingness to load heavy food storage as fast as he could so that my Dad wouldn't have to. I was thankful to visit with my Mom, and to have them both feeling happy to move to St. George. I was also thankful for safe travel, and for Connor's company as I drove.
|This is not their truck, but it kind of looks like it. You should have seen how tightly packed it was!|
