For example, I just took another hair-related State of the Bug picture. And I’m thankful that despite the fact that I still seem to be shedding about a cup of hair a day (really!), and despite the fact that sometimes the top of my head feels tingly & chilled for no good reason, I can find NO evidence that my hair is thinning. I know I’ve mentioned this before & promised to quit talking about it, but I’m amazed at how big a deal this is for me. Frankly I’m about ready to just chop it all off so I can quit obsessing (not really).
I’m ever so thankful that something Dr. M said last night replaced the Dreidel Song in my head with Wham’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go. If you’re unfamiliar with either of these songs I’m not going to enlighten you. You’re welcome. But, really, of the two, the Wham song is a much better ear worm (especially because George Michael’s voice is infinitely preferable to Cartman’s!).
I’m so thankful that we bought our futon, what – 15 years ago? It’s been a great place for naps, and for surgical recovery nests, and last night it was a respite for me when I couldn’t get settled in bed. Rather than continue to thrash around & wake up Dr. M, I headed out to the living room and nestled into the space where the seat meets the back & stretched my twitchy legs out as far as they would go and fell asleep within minutes. It’s better than a sleeping pill.
I’m thankful that our choir director doesn’t throw things at us, he’s patient and good at figuring out how to help us sing better, and that the whole point of a choir is that it’s ok if your voice isn’t fabulous as long as you’re on the right note at the right time (sinus issues are clogging up my voice these days).
I love that we’re singing John Rutter’s arrangement of For the Beauty of the Earth because it reminds me that we’re stewards of God’s creation & would it kill me to quit buying so many packaged things?
What are you thankful for today?
