Finding My Grace Friday

All day today I've been wanting to post a blog about something...but most of the things on my mind are either incredibly inflammatory (to SOMEONE I'm sure) and/or unformed, random, frustrated thoughts due to the recent Popular Topics on Facebook and Twitter.  Then I saw Sara's post in my Google Reader and thought it'd be a good idea to follow suit. 

Because sometimes a girl needs a prompt. 

So here goes.

1. What is something small that you are thankful for this week?
Technology.  BUT MANDY!  YOU JUST SAID!!  I know...I know.  But having Twitter and my iPhone have allowed me to quickly reach people I am not geographically near for a quick thought or a request for support/prayer or even just a laugh.  Technology isn't really small I guess...but my iPhone is. 

2. What is something you know you are so lucky to have that others don’t?
My husband.  Oh sure, he's someone else's son/friend/teacher/brother. But he's only MY husband. 

3. What is something you know you need to work on?
SHUTTING UP.  I have such a knee-jerk reaction to post/comment on things online before thinking them through, and that's something I'm working on.  Also, even the stuff I want to just make my own status...I need to stop and think "Mandy, you don't have to post everything that happens to you on Facebook/Twitter."  I'm trying to work on living more in the moment and off the grid.

4. How did you do on being more grateful for your #3 item from last week?
Well since this is my first week playing along...I don't have an answer for this one.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.  I intend to spend it seeing some excellent theatre, cleaning my house, spending quality time with family, and watching no fewer than 3 episodes of Battlestar Galactica.  Happy Friday!


  1. where do I find all this Finding Grace Friday!? I would love to join in (if that is ok) I am struggling to write these days and find it mucho easier (or maybe 'lazier' -- eerp!) if I have a topic or questions to work from!
