I feel like so often when I sit down to write my Thankful Friday entry that it turns into a "this is what I did this week" entry. I feel like maybe I lose a little bit of focus of what this entry is all about. Today's entry started out to be just that. I typed up a whole paragraph about my new home security system and then deleted it. Feeling safe is something to be thankful for, but the how and why I got the system isn't all that important and turns into a very boring read. I've eaten well this week and at meal time I've taken a moment to thank the Universe not just for my food, but for the little things in my day. Those little things add up and by the end of the week I realize I have so many things to be grateful for. It's easy to miss those little things or forget about them so that by the end of the week all you're really thankful for is the fact that it's the end of the week.
This week, I am thankful for the reminder that these little things add up to a pretty good week. Those little things are things like helping someone understand how to use a microscope to take better images of their research or the satisfaction of just completing a day well. I am thankful for a delete button, for the snippets of time I've had to chat with friends, for the ebb and flow of the days. Knowing that the next few weeks are going to be hectic and full makes me thankful for the moments that are still.
I am always thankful for you.
