Because a thankful heart is a happy heart – Days 7 and 8

Yeah, I made that. BOOM. Well, I made the “Give thanks” thingamabob. The leaves I just bought. Hobby Lobby made them but they love Jesus, so HOLY LEAVES. Also, the picture is terrible, I know. I was not blessed with good Instragram genes. I’ve tried to understand aperture and shutter speed and lighting and it all just floats over my head like a wispy little cloud. Also can we all agree – the light in the dining room is UGLY. I mean, we can try and write it off as “retro” or “vintage” if we want, but we’d just be advertising to ourselves now wouldn’t we?

On with the thankfuls! You can read Days 1-4 here and Days 5-6 here.

Day 7 – I am thankful for crafternoons with friends! I cut out the aforementioned letters and paper at a friend’s apartment. There were just three of us but it was cozy and warm and the perfect fall funtivity (I am all about making up words people). I met those two friends through my local chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America and I’m so grateful for all the connections I’ve made through the organization, both locally and nationally! I have a lot of fun and have cultivated some good friendships with my KC friends – you guys rock! And thanks to attending two HLAA conventions, I’ve made friends from all over the place who totally get the hearing loss gig and even when we don’t see each other for a long time, we are able to pick up right where we left off.

Day 8 – I am thankful for technology. My phone had a little hiccup yesterday and wiped out all my contacts. So I sent out a Facebook/email SOS asking people to text me with their numbers so I can go through the AWESSSOMMMMME process of adding everyone back in. But what is awesome about this is that people have basically been texting and emailing me all day. I’ve even gotten to chat a bit with people I don’t normally talk to. I’m grateful for the way technology – when used appropriately – connects us to each other.

What are you thankful for today?
