Thankful Thursday

I have the post vacation blues.

I cried in the car on the way home from the airport last night. My poor husband. Here I have been gone for 5 days and he is happy to see me and I am crying in the car because I wasn't ready to come home.

I am the best. wife. ever.

I was not feeling thankful today. And yet I do have things to be thankful for and I need to focus on them right now.

Perhaps in doing so I will snap out of my funk. So here goes.

I have no pictures to go with them today. Just a list. It will have to do.

--I am thankful to have time off for Spring Break. I know this is unusual, working in an office.

--I am thankful to have had such a wonderful and safe trip.

--I am thankful for my husband. He brought me flowers yesterday when he came and picked us up and he was completely understanding about the tears.

--I am thankful to have a job.

--I am thankful that the migraine that plagued me almost the whole time I was away seems to have subsided for now.

--I am thankful for cozy new flannel pajamas. It was chilly when I got home last night.

--I am thankful for my bed. I always sleep better in my own bed than in any other. As soon as I got home I put on my cozy new pajamas and climbed into my warm bed.

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for my holiday with my hubby but also to come home. I am thankful for the Easter weekend.

Oh Michelle, perhaps you cried as you had a little break from all the stress you have had.

Chin up girlfriend.

Michelle, the tears make sense. When we lived in that other place, we took frequent weekends away. Even if we had the next one planned, I felt really awful returning to the stress that awaited me. Funny that I am getting ready to visit that place today.

Glad your headache is gone, that you have cozy PJs, and that you had the opportunity to get away. :)

I like what Lea said...a little let down from the stress lately. Hang in there friend.

I'm thankful for the rain we've had this week.
