Gratitude Friday list...

Welcome to Gratitude Friday and Company Girl Coffee! Grab a cup of Tazo tea today and enjoy a quiet moment of solitude at my house. Here's my Gratitude Friday list....

1. A fabulous new hair stylist!!!!!!! Thanks, Melissa, for the beautiful hair cut! I love it.

2. Warmer temperatures and the sunshine! The snow is melting and school is open again!

3. Great price for a gym so I can start training for my half marathon in March. I'm a walker, not a runner, though! (My first marathon was in 2004 and I finished in 6 1/2 hours!)

4. Fantastic friends that have a heart for God and as we plan for a ladies' retreat, seeing the awesome way God has brought us together just amazes me every time we meet! (even if it's through a conference call on a little green phone!)

5. True Blue Spa Foot Cream "shea it isn't so" -- I love having pretty feet/toes and this foot cream works wonders to keep my feet soft. If I'm not able to get a pampered feet treatment at the spa, thank goodness for this cream!

6. Our good friends, Jackie and Jim, who came over for dinner tonight and played the fun game "Mexican Train" with us. We've known them for years, all because of their youngest son floating off on a blowup raft on the lake and I saved him! They're my pick for Project 365 today~

I enjoyed your gratitude list. I think it is important to take a minute and be thankful for the things in our lives.

I tell you, a good haircut can right a lot of wrongs in your life! That alone could've filled up my five spots on the list...

I'm so impressed you are going to do a half-marathon! Right now, if I could do a half-MILE, it would merit a medal.

A half-marathon - wow that is something I could never do. Happy training and I'm glad it's warming up where you live. We are having another snow storm with a projected 9 inches by tomorrow. It's a good weekend to stay inside. Have a great weekend!

Again.... a fabulous gratitude Friday! We, at Ridgeview, are grateful for you and your visits to us! Are you tired of seeing and smelling graham crackers and frosting?! Enjoy your weekend! It might snow.... but we won't take any pictures... will we??? :)

Gotta love Company Girl Coffee on a blog called Latte Buddies! I need to check out that foot cream. Summer sandals and winter dryness are not my friends.

I second the Farmer's Wife's opinion on hair cuts! Finding a good stylist is right up there with finding a good pediatrician in my book. I'm starting to think about a new 'do....been with this one for a long time, perhaps it's time for a change.

I've always wished I could run, but my knees are too painful. I'm thinking the wii fit might be a good thing for me.

Hi Kerry! So where's the picture of this new hairstyle that you got???? It needs to be included in project 365 too! : )

I sometimes feel like I'm running a marathon every day with all these kids! They keep me in shape!

Have a good weekend,
-Melissa

Good luck with your half marathon. Maybe I'll do one too one day...when I'm not pregnant. hehe
