Thankful Thursday II

My girl Juicebox Confession has decided to take up Thankful Thursdays.  I'm participating again because being thankful is good for me.  Really good for me and I definitely need to spend more time being thankful.

1.  I won some money last week from scratch-offs given to me by my coworkers.  So...that is awesome and I'm really happy about that, but I'm also really thankful to have thoughtful, generous co-workers.  And I'm glad I have people to feed cupcakes to.

Yeah....French Toast Cupcakes, Maple Cream Cheese frosting, and BACON

2.  People who care about me enough to give me a wonderful birthday!

3.  I'm thankful that I got to have another Birthday.  So many people aren't so lucky. 

4.  For the past few months, life has been kind of dark and sucky.  I've had a very hard time keeping my head about water and trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I feel like I see it now and that is an awesome feeling. 

5. Luck.  Most of the time, if I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all but I seem to be having a good string of it so...that's awesome.
6. My health.  I've had a terrible time with my back lately, but for the most part I am healthy.  

7. My furries.  Today the guinea pigs looked at me like they might actually want something to do with me.  My cats snuggled me all morning.  Love is a good thing. 

8. People who come through for me.  This week I asked some people for favors.  Favors they really do not have to do, and yet they're showing up and going to bat.  That is an amazing feeling. 

9. Experiences I've never had to have.  I don't know that I need much more detail for that one.  But I'm thankful that there are certain things I've never had to learn the hard way and hope my life never comes to that. 

10.  I'm still thankful for my MTCAB followers.  My wall BLEW UP on my birthday.  I don't even know how many birthday wishes I got, but it was more than 5x what I personally received on my wall and that is pretty special.  I also realized that on November 11th, 2013....I had hit 100 followers.  Four months later and there are 1,244 awesome people who like my page on Facebook.  That is incredible and blows my mind. 

If you have some time to be grateful...head over to Juicebox Confession and share your Thanksful Thursday thoughts!


  1. OH GOD...those cupcakes look dangerously delicious. I'd gladly grow a love handle or two for them. Sorry things have been sucky for you lately. Boo to that, but yay for your growing number of followers! :)

  2. I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel. Turned out to be a damn train. Loved the post.

  3. I'm thankful that I found your blog! It's always a great read.

    P.s. Those cupcakes....I need those in my life.
