Thankful Thursday

Today I'm thankful for:
--Our table. It was a wedding gift, and with all the leaves in it, we can sit 12 people, 14 if we squish. It's great to be able to get everyone around a single spot when I have students over.
--Our super-cool folding chairs. They match our regular dining room chairs. We got them from the church across the street when they got new choir chairs. So not only can everyone have a place at the table, they all can sit down on a "real" chair.
--My student researchers, B and M. They're hard workers and bring a lot of life to the lab. I'll miss them next week when they're done!
--My co-workers. Despite our religious, political, social, and age differences, we work well as a team.
--My sourdough starter. It's awesome, and so was the bread I made from it tonight. Thanks to the real Bread of Life and the nourishment he brings!
--That all these things came together tonight, and that we had a good time at dinner :)

I love to gather around the table and hang out there. My family did that when I was growing up and it always makes me feel good when everyone lingers at the table for conversation and fun.

Have a great weekend!

Having people over for dinner/get-together is always a time of fun and joy. Although the work to prepare might be a lot, but having time with other is always a blessing.

How cool that you have a great team to work with, despite all your difference. It is important to have go working environment.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.
