thankful on a Thursday

When I started to blog last summer, I did a weekly post I called grateful girl
It was my attempt to focus on the many things in my life I am thankful for. 
My last grateful girl post was almost two months ago...I really need to get back into the swing of things.
And I have to say, now is a good time because I've caught myself feeling ungrateful lately...eek!
150. We are, albeit slowly, meeting people at the church we're attending...
and that means we're both trying so hard to be patient about making friends...but it's

151. Time with a dear friend earlier this week
[there was also ice cream at my favorite place involved --double grateful].

152.  Fridays off from work during the summer...six.more.weeks.

 153.  The ability to host people in our home to say thanks for helping us move
[we're long overdue, but the kitchen is somewhat presentable now].

154.  Our living room looks lived in...I mean boxes are unpacked
and we even put a few things on the walls which is so refreshing.

155. A fantastic trip to see both of our families.
 What are you grateful for this week?
