I'm thankful for my church family. I used to go to church every week as a child, but stopped going in high school. I hadn't been to church in years when Brad asked me to go to church with him. We had been dating for six or seven months and this was a big deal for him. I went to Easter services in 2010 and never stopped going. I now help with the high school Sunday School class, help out as a liturgist when needed, and participate in fun evening stuff with some of the ladies. I found a church where I'm free to question and grow within my faith and we love everybody, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, whatever. It's a pretty good feeling. Well, that and we go to Wendy's after church on Sunday with Brad's parents. I like Wendy's.
I'm thankful for my Momma. I have had a hellacious week at work and she made me head out to meet her at Curves for some Zumba. What fun! The workout felt so good (probably since I haven't worked out since the wedding. Oops!) and my mom and I have the same (very lacking) sense of rhythm. We laughed and sweated and felt better at the end. It made the week seem bearable and I actually felt like I had some me-time. My mom is pretty awesome for making sure I got my butt kicked at least once this week. :)
Today I'm thankful for microwaves and oatmeal. It is a very chilly morning and a hot bowl of oatmeal is both healthy and warming. Bring on the day!
