To Be Thankful or Not To Be Thankful this Thursday

Today is Thursday and I am not feeling Thankful. Everyday I wake up and try to be grateful for the wonderful blessings in my life. I go through a list of people and things but today I can only think....UGH (I am betting this is because I am tired....I really hate being tired).

It all started last night (not really but this is kind of funny) when I was curled up next to The BF (this part is true) and we were watching a TV show about a man that killed his wife and three children (really inspiring I know). As the show was ending and I was feeling all secure and happy I thought to myself. "I am so lucky. I never have to worry about The BF killing me and folding my body up in a suitcase and throwing me off a pier to hide me." (Seriously this was my thought). Right after I had this warm fuzzy thought about The BF...the jerk scared me and not on accident but purposefully startled me. And then he laughed....and when I told him what I had just been thinking he laughed even harder.

Can you believe it?

So today I am going to list things I am often thankful for but occasionally not so much.

  • The BF: While he is a great guy and mostly wonderful on occasion I am not enamored of him... see biking story and above paragraph.
  • My Sisters: Like most woman with sisters I love them a lot but periodically I cry out to God asking why I could not be an only child...see closet story.
  • My Brothers: I don't often write about my fact I don't think I ever have (I will have to fix that) but like my sisters I love them and sometimes wonder what bad thing did I do in a past life to deserve this torture.
  • And last my hair: what is it about my hair that some days it wont do a thing and other days (like today) it looks amazing.
So on this Thursday what are the things that you are thankful for but every once in awhile make you want to pound your head (or maybe their head) on the wall.


  1. The first thing that comes to mind is my job. I am so thankful to have it yet I never want to go.

    1. I love my job but there are some days I really dont want to go.

  2. Oh the children could fit this bill at times, naturally I love them to bits and am so blessed and thankful to have but every now and then they make me go REALLY!!!???!!!

    1. I could see that kids are a "mixed" blessing.

  3. Oh this is a VERY unique post!! I love it :)
    I bet your hair is always gorgeous - just like you & your heart!

    Thanks for linking up to Thankful Thursday with me at First Day of My Life!! :)
    Happy weekend! ox
