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!
