It's been a strange week around these parts. I got some fabulous news and also had a few incidents that were not so fabulous which made me feel a nauseous kind of anxious. I definitely need to take a step back and focus on the things I'm thankful for over the past few weeks.

I am so thankful I have good studded winter tires on my car. I live out in the country and work in town at least once a week I find myself driving to/from work in snowy, icy and way less than ideal road conditions. It's not enjoyable, but I'm glad I have good tires because it makes me feel more secure and a little safer.

I'm thankful that my contract was extended by two weeks taking me to mid-April. It's perfect in that it gives me time to keep making good money before I go pack to camp pay cheques and it gives me enough time to prepare for camp. Last year I was in the office from February-May before living on site for the season. There was a rumour going around that our contracts could get extended until May, which wouldn't have given me zero time to prepare for staff training & camp.

I'm thankful that not only will I have some time to prepare for camp I also have time for a vacation. J. and I booked a trip! I got a passport two years ago and have never used it, so I'm excited to finally add a stamp. Not to mention soak up all the Vitamin D my body can hold! (While wearing  copious amounts of sunscreen because I'm not in the market for skin cancer.)

I'm thankful I have the ability to pick up the TV remote and change the channel when "Dr."Phil or "Dr."Oz come on. 

I'm thankful for the first few minutes in the morning when I stay in bed, slowly wake up and take time to pray about the day ahead. 

I'm thankful for the first hour of my day when I can sip coffee, watch morning news shows and start the day stress free.

I'm thankful for the opportunity to link up for the Thankful Thursday Party so I can share my thankful moments and read through others.


  1. I am so happy your contract got extended just the right amount of time! Enjoy that vacation and the feeling of relief that comes from having time to prepare for camp! Quiet, stressful mornings are so important too. Thanks for linking up!

  2. What a great post. I am thankful to sip my coffee for about 30 minutes before the rest of the house wakes up.

  3. So where is the vacation? Mine is in 35 days to Antigua! Vitamin D here I come!

  5. YAY!!!! You get to go on a trip!!!! That is the best news ever :) Soak up all the vitamin D you can get!
