Grateful Heart Monday
Today is Monday. Memorial Day. The start of another week. The beginnings of summer. There is so much to be thankful for! Today I wanted to share a few things that I am grateful for with Ember Grey's "Grateful Heart Monday" linkup! Join in! (She's also having a really great giveaway on her blog. Check it out!)
Today I am very thankful for our troops. I and thankful for my freedoms and for those that made sacrifices and served our country to defend those freedoms. To anyone that has served the United States in any way, thank you! My brother is being deployed soon and I am so thankful for him and his dedication to the National Guard and protecting others.
Today I am thankful for changes in schedule. I was supposed to work this evening and the schedule was changed so I get to enjoy Memorial Day with some friends! Little things like that are such huge blessings in my life.
Today I am thankful for sunshine. I have been so happy the last few weeks because the weather is getting warmer and the sun has been shining in the big blue sky. Being outside on days like today really brighten my mood and give me such a happiness!
Today I am thankful for plants. I got a new pot and some plants at Lowe's yesterday and planted it and now my room has some life! I love gardens and succulents and flowers and anytime I can add one to my windowsill my heart sings.
Today I am thankful for weekends with Mark. We both started new jobs and live a few hours away from one another so we only get to see each other on the weekends (if I'm not working) so the time we get to spend together this summer up until the wedding is going to be very special to me! This past weekend we had dinner, visited some friends, went to a graduation party for a friend, went to church, and had dinner with his family.
