Thankful Thought 001

In light of today's devastating earthquake in Japan, my yucky week pales in comparison. I won't go into the details of it since in the grand scheme of things, the one thing that clouded my week was really one of those small things. I allowed one negative thing in a host of positive things to bring me down.

That's something I'm forever working on.

Ali Edwards just posted about Thankful Thoughts. I've already used her freebie overlays for today's post!

So, instead of seeing my glass as half-empty, I'm going to count all the full glasses I've had this week.

  • Most of the participants in Tuesday's training (my very first to facilitate with my colleague) were satisfied with the events of the day.
  • I had a fabulous time at Fr. Leo's Marriott event on Tuesday night.
  • My mom turned another year older.
  • I was surprised to find out Fr. Leo would be our guest homilist at our Ash Wednesday Mass...and felt so very blessed to have been in the midst of his presence.
  • The people I'm accompanying to World Youth Day Madrid are really awesome young men and women...this past week has proven that we can work together.
  • We were blessed to have had dinner with Fr. Leo potluck style at Deacon Louis and Cynthia's house.
  • We're all safe and sound on higher ground while waiting out the tsunami warning and praying for our neighbors in Japan.
