Thankful Thursday - Part Deaux
I can't do a Thankful post today without mentioning a couple of specific people.
Splenda Daddy. Admittedly I was more than a little bugged last night that I felt so pressured to go get checked and it ended up being nothing, which don't get me wrong, is good, just wished I would have waited. However, by morning's light and after a scolding from the Shark, I realized that we did the right thing based on previous experience and I am darn lucky that he loves me and cared enough about me to be so worried and careful. And thanks to the Shark - he now has his own fan club of which I am a charter member.(Tiburon is freakin amazing with the computer graphics - behold her greatness)I am so thankful.
Speaking of the Shark......I didn't call anyone last night. I don't like that kind of attention. Now, if I'm being funny then by all means make me the center of attention, but for this kinda crap, I'd rather just blend in and not be noticed. But I knew that if I wasn't there in the morning for class, I would be getting a phone call. I also knew that if she went to the ER and DIDN'T CALL ME?? I.would.be.ticked.
So I send a text and within moments, she is on the phone willing to drop everything, come right down there and even spoon me if I needed it. I'm the first to claim that I'm lucky enough to feel like I have many good friends and many people whom I love and who love me back, but Shark is one of a kind. Words sometimes just aren't enough. I think I have another sister. Lucky me. I am so thankful.
Tuffy. What a good kid. I know I go on and on about him a lot. But last night I was particularly proud of him. He was at work when we left. Splenda called him when he got off, explained where we were and told him to go to bed and we'd let him know more later. When we came home, he was still awake. Talked to him and I really figured he would sleep through seminary this morning. Nope. Dude got up at oh-dark-thirty and got himself to early morning seminary. No worries for me. I am so thankful.
Blog friends that you get to meet IRL. I got a phone call this morning with a lunch offer. Seems that Annie was in town and had a window of time to get together. LUCKY ME!! Really, if you don't read her, go check her out. And while you are at it, note that she is just as beautiful in person as she is on her blog. She came with her sister and a friend and met me, Shark and Pedaling at the ever delightful Cafe Rio.
(I blame the morphine hangover for my, um, er, look)
Fun fun times! Meeting Annie was a kick! And this was my second time meeting up with Sheila and I adore her more each time. This blogging world has brought me much fun, happiness and a buttload of new friends. I am so thankful.
