Weekly Gratitude (1)

Hello, Friends!
So if you've been here before, you've probably seen these posts from me in the past.  I'm starting back at "1" because I've been spotty about these posts lately.
  If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about, Weekly Gratitude posts were something started by Tatiana at Love, Life, Lace.  The point is to reflect, once a week, on the things or people about your life that you are grateful for.

This week, I am grateful for a few things:

1)  About a month ago, I started a new job as a waitress at a locally owned restaurant.  I had never waitressed before, so to begin with, I'm thankful that I was hired!  Most restaurants won't hire somebody without previous experience in the field, and this restaurant was willing to train me!  
So far, I absolutely love it!  My coworkers are great, and I love the job itself.  So I'm grateful for that too!  

2)  Lately, I've been noticing a few new readers.  It's not much, certainly not as many as most of the blogs I read have, but it still means a lot to me.  Comments make me smile every time the little button pops up, and I really do love reading what you have to say!

3)  My friends.  Especially simple things like nights watching Titanic and playing Monopoly.  
I miss my friends at school so much, but at the same time, I love being able to see my friends from home all the time.  

What are you thankful for this week, Friends?  If you do decide to write about it, make sure too link it up at Love, Life, Lace, and let me know too!

  1. Whoa, that's awesome about your new job! I always regret never waitressing because the places around here don't really hire you unless you have done it before. But how can one get experience if every place requires that you already have experience? Hehe, but that's awesome that you get to try it out now! What do you think so far?

    I hope you have a great day!

  2. I completely agree! And thank you! I love it so far! :)

    Thanks - I hope you have a wonderful day as well!

  3. Aw! This is such a wonderful idea to remember the little things we should be grateful for. How cool that you got a job as a waitress, it seems like that would be a fun job! :)

  6. Awww, I love your gratitude. I should really start doing this... it reminds us we do have a lot to be thankful for, even if things seem so bleak!

  7. i love this gratitude post idea. i used to try to write in my journal every night one thing that i was really grateful for that day... i ought to start that on my blog as well.

    your blog is super cute, i'm glad i came across it!

  8. This is such a neat idea for a post. I am thankful for so much at the moment including my brother and sisters, watching movies (most recently My Fair Lady) with my besties, and my adorable cat Mr. Lump.
