I am truly thankful for this weekend. I never had a chance to recover from the last weekend. And even though I agreed to sub a class tomorrow morning (must learn how to say "no"), I have nothing planned. I'm going to clean out the fridge and inventory the vegetable stock, grocery shop, wash clothes, and sleep. There's going to be lots of sleeping this weekend.
Also, I had to rush out of the house early this morning to run an errand before work (not thankful for that). This put me in the car early enough to hear Story Corps on NPR. I haven't heard a Story Corps story in months. I like to call them Story Cry and todays didn't disappoint. I am thankful that I was able to hear the story of a man who lost his hearing at the age of ten and his love of baseball and how he got to meet Babe Ruth. Beautiful. I encourage every one to listen. And if tears don't prick your eyes when Brooks Robinson speaks to the man in sign, then you have a cold dead heart and I'm sorry for you.
As always I am thankful for Chris and the laughter we share, my health, my weekly veggie basket (We got blueberries this week!), and our hilarious dog. Take a moment to find gratitude in your week and enjoy the weekend!
