"God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say 'thank you'?" - William Arthur Ward
Today's quote is one of my all time favorites. Sometimes I write it on a post-it and keep it on the calendar in my purse. It is so important to show your appreciation everyday through kind words or actions. Today was one of those days that I felt extra appreciative not for any particular reason, just a feeling. While I was at the vet today (I spend a LOT of time there if you haven't noticed) I felt like I really needed to show my gratitude to whoever was there. So, lucky Erin got an earful about how wonderful she is as well as how much I appreciate the vet and the office in general. I feel like those girls (and one guy) are practically family - maybe I need to invite them for dinner. They do so much for our furry family that I want them all to know how much we appreciate them.
So, any ideas on a good thank you? Please let me know...I've been thinking about it and thought I would reach out to the internet for some ideas. There are so many that know us, work with Horton that I think individual thank yous are out (and I wouldn't want to forget one of those that work in the back and I don't see very often)...
I am thankful for Troy and his job at the museum. Every year that goes by that the museum is funded enough to employ Troy is a good year indeed. I love that Troy can work somewhere like the museum doing something he loves and believes in. The museum is such a good fit for a family too. I like that we can pop in and say hi, that Troy can come home early when needed for Archer, that he can have such a flexible (within reason) schedule. He is lucky indeed to work somewhere that allows him to sleep in a little in the mornings!
Today I went in and helped Troy document a collection. We took pictures of items with their assession numbers. We took over 100 photos, maybe close to 200 (not sure yet). I love being able to work with Troy - sounds nutty to some, however I really enjoy it.
And of course I am thankful for our Veterans. I hope they all know that we appreciate them for their bravery and service to our country!
