I voted for Thankful Thursday
Yes it's Thankful Thursday time again. And it is back by popular vote. I toyed with the idea of giving it up due to time restrictions but a lot of you voted (emailed me) and said keep it going so here I am and since it is Thursday, here we go.
I am thankful for the chance to vote in our primary elections. Just think of all the people who don't get to do that. And we had a runoff here and I voted in that as well. Remember if you don't use it you lose it so go out and vote whenever you can. The only sad part is that a lot of people don't vote or they vote based on a name or a color. For instance I heard a lot of people voted for Al Green because the name sounded familiar. I guess they were "Tired of being alone." Wrong Al Green people.
I am thankful for opportunities to make a few extra dollars. They really are all around us if we just look. God has been very good to us in this area. No 100 million dollar lottery but a few dollars in a coffee can.
I am again thankful for the ability to fix things that God gave me. I am amazed at the people who can't repair anything and I can fix almost everything. Notice I said almost.
I am thankful for family. This week our youngest has been away at 4-H camp and we really do miss him. It's funny, those little things he does which upset us just don't matter.
I am thankful that this week is almost over. It has been really hot and I have been doing some outside work. If you want to sweat, just come to SC. Hey that could be a new motto. :)
Have a great day and be thankful,
