Things I'm Thankful For...

I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to stop and breathe.  Don't get me wrong, busy is good.  But sometimes life hands you a little reminder to slow down; more on that another time.  I decided it was time to share the little things I'm thankful for, something I can share regularly, the minutia of life that makes living a little easier.

Of course I'm thankful for the big things - my wonderful, dispersed family; the funny, supportive friends; my health and positive test results of loved ones - these things keep me going on a regular basis.   Every once in awhile, though, something out of the blue happens that makes me smile - this is what I aim to share.  Who knows, maybe it'll make you smile, too.  They'll likely be totally not photo related, but that's okay... I'm made up of many things, only of them being my love of photography.

Today I'm thankful for my roommate's mom.  Weird, eh?  I know, I know, but here's the deal... I woke up this morning, overtired and not moving too quickly.  It had snowed last night (it was so pretty!  we stood together by the window looking at it, not speaking, just being content).  In my overtired state this morning, I grumbled about my busy day and how I'd have to start it with the scraping of the car.  As I head for the shower, there's J with his coat on and one hand on the door, on his way out to scrape the car for me.  Yes, his mama raised a good one.
