fostering a grateful spirit

margin {day 284}

today I have tons to be grateful for.

for a successful and fun planning meeting for hugs for Harlow, visited by none other than sweet miss Harlow herself. if you think of it, please pray for them over the next couple of days. Harlow had a scan Friday that appeared to show the tumor has not shrunk much (if at all). Please pray for peace for Jamie and Ben, for Harlow, and wisdom for the doctors as they do more tests and talk over the next steps.

I am also super grateful for a birthday dinner with my family. I’ve been amazingly well celebrated this week.

And last, but certainly not least, I am grateful for a new job that allows me to have margin in my life. I read a book about margin my freshman year of college and have consistently had none since then. I am grateful for time to see friends, to snuggle with my hubby, and to be able to go to see friends who need cheering. it feels good to be able to just go when I need to go.

today I am grateful for a care package from my best friend, jen. mail is fun, and care packages are even more fun! it’s nice to know that I am being though of, prayed for, and cared for from afar. I also was blessed with a visit from aubree, who hung out and brought us a delicious dinner. we watched a movie, talked and laughed, and dreamed together about the future. I feel very blessed.

today I am thankful for long, restful naps, a card of encouragement, texts reminding me I’m being prayed for, dinner delivered from jenni (which was awesome), and dark chocolate sea salt popcorn. I don’t know if I could describe to you how much these things encourage my spirit.

for the new Mumford album that I’ve been waiting all day to download, and for finally having enough motivation to figure out why my stupid phone wouldn’t connect to wifi after the ios6 update.
I have hours of listening pleasure ahead of me. goodness.

for a super delicious, pretty healthy dinner that my hubs prepared. I didn’t have to do any work, it was delicious and he made sure it stayed in the right calorie range, and I still have a clean kitchen. he was also super grateful for the very clean kitchen, which is sweet.
