This Week, it's Grateful Wednesday

a few weeks ago, i started linking up with emily (over at ember grey) to start my week with a grateful heart.  i love taking some time to think about the things i'm grateful for.

this week has been particularly crazy and busy.  i'm on staff at a church of about 5,000 people and we're gearing up for our easter services next weekend.  that means having bulletins to the printer this week and finalizing plans and details, and lots of meetings.  this is my first year in my new position as creative arts project coordinator, and my bosses know that i blog, so they asked me to blog through next week.  (so sorry if you've been disappointed by my lack of posting these last few days…i've been writing, just not for heavens to betsy!)  if you're a blogger, you know that it can be really hard to pump out post after post, and i've been busy writing 8 different posts that will walk readers through the week between palm sunday and easter…talk about pressure!

anyway, i still wanted to get in thankful list this week, so here goes!

here's what i'm particularly grateful about today:

new glasses that have been shipped (even though they're reading glasses…which means i'll now wear contacts and glasses at the same time)
archer farms vanilla bean creme brûlée k-cups (from target…go get them now.)
a good report from dad's scans this week!  (his tumor is very small and everything is stable!)
exciting opportunities at work that are stretching and challenging me
one week til aj's home for easter
two weeks til i go to boston for a few days
being a part of an awesome staff
time scheduled to spend with friends this week
another day of subbing on friday (ka-ching!) $$ :)
warm weather & runs outside
achieving my goal of running 10-miles this past sunday!

emily runs a little grateful heart link-up every monday, and it's open all week…i encourage you to go check it out, read some of the other posts, and consider participating! 

what are you grateful for today?


  1. Oh my gosh- I bet you ARE busy!! My husband is a part of the music for our (very large) church and I've barely seen him this week. You will need some rest / re-energizing afterwards, for sure, but how cool they asked you to blog about the days leading up to Easter!

    1. Yeah! Working at a church gets a little crazy during these holidays! Haha…I'm heading to Boston for a few days the week after Easter, so that will be a great time to spend a few days in the New England sun with my boy!

  2. I am grateful for sunny skies outside today and getting my car fixed at the shop (hooray!). Also grateful for dinner being made in the crock pot while I'm at work... wheeee :)

  3. Sounds like a busy week but you definitely have so much to be thankful of!

    1. yes! definitely! and it's nice to take a moment and remember all that i have to be thankful for!

  4. Those K-cups sound amazing! And- good job for running 10 miles! That's impressive!
    What a privilege to write those posts for your church! No pressure here! :)

    1. Thanks girl! I'm so excited about the posts for church…it might be a little quiet around here next week as well but I'll be sure to redirect to those posts :)

  5. "a good report from dad's scans this week! (his tumor is very small and everything is stable!)" Yay! So glad to hear things are going okay.

    And those k-cups sound delish!

    1. Thanks Caitlin! We were so happy to hear that good report…continuing to pray for those!
      And yes, those k-cups are amazing. Only coffee I drink at work…haha! I think they have it in a ground coffee too :)

  6. Great week! Sounds like you enjoyed a lot. :)
