Thankful Thursday: 5 Peaces of my Week that I’m Super Thankful for…

Every night before I fall asleep, I try to take 5 minutes to write down what I was thankful for in the day. I think about what small thing brought me the biggest peace. There’s something about closing out the end of my day this way that just feels good & lets my heart & brain connect & relax. I love it!

So recently, I’ve decided it might be fun for me to share some of my peaces of the week with you. I’m going to try my hardest to post every Thursday.

Drumroll please….
Peace #of the week 5: A Random Cookie Sighting

You know it’s gonna be a good day when you walk into the office kitchen & find cookies! One of my coworkers ordered a ton of Girl Scout cookies & then went on vacation, deciding to share their cookies with the entire office! Woohoo!!! cookies for breakfast! (Don’t tell my kids!). When Girl Scout Cookie season is over, I may have to try this copycat Samoa recipe from the Just a Taste blog Is it just me or do the Samoas (aka Caramel Delights) taste different than they did when we were kids!

Peace of the Week #4: Watching my nephew’s first attempts at crawling


This one made me truly thankful for technology! My sister and I are very close & living so far from each other is the hardest thing ever! (She’s in the Armed Forces) Skype & videos are what keep us connected. My nephew is a chubba and it was just hilarious watching him working hard to coordinate his hands & feet so he could move & then rolling onto his side whenever he got tired! I can’t wait to see him this Summer!

Peace of the Week #3:
A funny phone conversation with my mom

Peace of the Week #2:
Getting the last watermelon Jolly Rancher out of our family candy dish


One of my family’s favorite treats are jolly ranchers candies. But, It’s a sad state of affairs for the purple & green jolly ranchers…no one likes them! Cherry, watermelon & blueberry run the Watkins castle. So when I found pink amongst the sea of green & purple I was a little beside myself with joy! What’s your fav flavor?

Peace of the Week #1:
Stripes on canvas


The past few months have been super busy & it hurt my heart to come to the realization that no matter how much I may want to push myself, no one has invented a way to paint while you’re asleep! So I was super excited to REALLY get to paint this week! LOVE the stripes on the side! See how it’s going here & check back next week to see how it’s going


Ok, that’s it! Ciao Loves! Wishing you Love, Laughter & Peace ’til we chat again next week!

  1. Yeah! I love this! Isn’t it fun to look for these wonderful things to be thankful for! Some days, it’s so easy to find something,and other days, you have to look a little deeper, but there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for! I’m pretty fond of technology as well – my daughter & grandson live about 3 1/2 hours away, and FaceTime has become an all time favorite of mine! đŸ™‚
    I’m looking forward to next Thursday! Have a great week-end!
