It has come to my attention that I am not as clever and original as I thought I was. "Thankful Thursday" is some other blog writer's creation and I am infringing on copyright. Okay not really, but somebody else thought of it before I did. The blog has something to do with chocolate...I can't remember what the name of it is...Jen knows, ask her!
When I decided I wanted to do this weekly-counting-blessings post, I thought I should come up with a name for it. Of course the alliteration came to mind and I thought, "Nooooo. That was so easy someone else is bound to have done that already." But, I couldn't think of anything and I have yet to devote more than five seconds of brain power to it so Thankful Thursday stuck. Should I ever come up with a cooler name, I'll change it. Odds are though, that everything under the sun has already been used. It's basically impossible to be original anymore. For Pete's sake I think I went through 50 different blog addresses before Blogger approved this musings one as available. Definitely not my first choice.
But now I am babbling so I'll sum up by saying, "Phooey on whatever chocolate came up with Thankful Thursday first. I know I'm clever!":)
And so, on to business. Today I am thankful for dish soap and hand lotion. Yes sir, you read right. My hands may be temporarily dry and cracked, but my dishes are sanitary! This crazy concoction gives us a bit more of an edge in staying healthy on top of making it oh-so-much easier to get food off of dirty dishes. And when I'm done putting the dish soap through its paces, I've got the lovely invention of hand lotion waiting to make sure that my kids don't get mad when I stroke their oh-so-soft cheeks:) Kudos to the people who brought us dish soap and hand lotion. I love you guys.
