grateful project : the little things * days 16-20

November 20, 2010

oh man, i am so beyond behind. i think i momentarily fell off the grateful wagon, but never fear!  i’ve sprinted back up marathon-style to bring you another uber-long post of thanks!

i was on my way to get coffee the other day when it hit, as it has a ba-jillion times before, how very grateful i am for a small little thing i like to call ‘the drive-thru’ (have you heard of it?) :) and never does this become more apparent than when you become a mother and suddenly, you are wishing every freakin’ place on the planet had a drive-thru so you didn’t have to unload your baby(ies) for the umpteenth time that day (am i right people?!). i’m talking grocery store drive-thrus, drive-thrus at target, barnes & noble, you name it, i’ve wished it had a drive thru. and has anyone ever noticed that if you’re craving a delicious and nutritious sandwich for lunch, there is absolutely NO WHERE to drive thru. no. where. subway? nope. quiznos? nada. so thank you, inventor of the drive-thru man/woman because you make my life EASIER!!

i’m grateful for : the promise of the future…

have you ever really looked at the moon? of course you have, but have you ever looked at the moon in awe? chewing on the thought that the reason you can see it is that the sun is lighting it up from the complete opposite side of the earth. amazing. awe-inspiring. incredibly grateful for the moon tonight. and plus, ever since i was a little guy i have loved this poem…i see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me.

i’m grateful for : fostering an early love of reading…

and my random thanks for the day? these little birds that dangle in my kitchen and make me smile :)

happy weekend!

    So true about drive-thru’s such a blessing! I don’t think I would like a drive thru barnes and noble though…Chris and I were there today…I just love looking at all the books and hanging out! But, I do have to tell you that I got the Nook and it is kind of like a drive thru for BandN…all I have to do is hit the ‘buy now’ button on the Nook and WALLA an instant download! {I’m in serious trouble!}
    anyways…since its a catchup blog post, I guess this is a catchup comment post {ubber long!} ;)
