Thankfulness: an expression of gratitude. Gratitude: the state of being grateful. Grateful: appreciative of benefits received.
Yup. That’s me this week. Only I would substitute BLESSINGS for “benefits”.
I’m thankful for FREEDOM!
I’m thankful for second chances.
I’m thankful for my awesome, loving family.
I’m thankful for the friends I made at OSFA!
And super thankful for the sweet lady who listened to me rant like crazy at lunch today. [Also, thankful that the policeman behind me just listened quietly to our conversation and only judged me in his head.]
I’m thankful for 15 extra minutes of sleep.
I’m thankful for the friends who turn out to be your family.
I’m thankful for family who turn out to your best friends.
I’m thankful for home …
I’m thankful for new opportunities to make friends!
I’m thankful for Mexican food and my awesome job.
I’m thankful that my fingernails will grow back and that my hair is growing out.
But mostly, I think I’m thankful for unconditional love, for grace, for forgiveness, and for life!
Now let’s jam …..
I just saw Country Strong for the first time. So, I’ll give you a few of my thoughts before I give you my playlist. I loved Garrett Hedlund! I could eat him up with a spoon. And after a few rocky moments at the beginning I feel in love with Leighton Meester’s character Chiles. However, I did not love Kelly. I did not love the plot. I was not blown away. Other than Garrett, I’d have to say the only thing I really LOVED was the soundtrack. So, today’s What I’m Playing is dedicated to the movie Country Strong 🙂 Btw, I actually do NOT like the song Country Strong ….
Leighton Meester & Garrett Hedlund – Give In To Me
Garrett Hedlund – Timing is Everything
Garrett Hedlund – Chances Are
Garrett Hedlund – Hard Out Here
Leighton Meester – Words I Couldn’t Say
