30 Days of Thanks #5- A Busy Weekend

Throughout the month of November I am writing about the first thing for which I am consciously thankful each day. I am doing this simply as a way to be more intentionally grateful. For more on this project, check out the first one or even last year’s 30 Days of Thanks.

It’s a good thing this weekend contained an extra hour. Between the end of work on Friday and the beginning of work on Monday I helped Janet clean the house, moved a lot of heavy stuff at the church work day, watched Jack’s Upward game, helped Sammie with her science project, set up a projector to watch football on the side of Pastor’s house,

hung out with a bunch of guys eating and watching football, ranted about hating Les Miles only slightly less than Alabama, changed all the clocks in the house (I haven’t gotten to the van yet), led a Bible study group, had a family of four and two college students over for lunch, listened to missionary Andy Moore at church on Sunday night, had another family of four over for supper, packaged a bunch of cookies for GEICO, and still found time to watch Virginia win and the Giants lose.

Oh, yeah, I’m worn out. But every single one of those activities was done with people I really enjoy being around. I was encouraged by every single one of them. Sometimes the busiest weekends are the most refreshing. The next time I start complaining about having too much to do I will remember that…

Today, November 5, I am thankful for the opportunity to be involved in so much and for the chance to do it all with great friends.
