Good Things: January 2012

February 1, 2012

At the end of each day I write down at least one GOOD thing that happened, then I share them all here monthly.


1 – A quiet morning just Meredith and me, and an easy drive home from Irving where we spent NYE.

2 – David making dinner.

3 – Rocking Meredith to sleep and watching her just lie in my lap, doze, nurse, and smile.

4 – Prayer time while pumping & being filled with joy and peace.

5 – Dinner at Scott & Vanessa’s with the whole family.

6 – A patient (another RN) complimenting my needlestick technique, starting a difficult IV, and Meredith napping on my lap when I picked her up from Grammy’s house.

7 – The Texans winning their first playoff game on David’s birthday; my good friend Carmen’s wedding.

8 – Forbes birthday dinner (for David, my sister-in-law, and my nephew).

9 – Getting through the day as charge nurse without any problems; finishing and truly enjoying The Marrige Plot.

10 – An argument with David turning into a good conversation about how we can show our love better.

11 – The whole evening at home with David.

13 – Doing a crossword puzzle at lunch.

14 – Getting the house cleaned; Meredith napping in my lap.

15 – Going to a church that David and I both liked.

16 – A nice evening with David: sitting down to dinner together and helping each other with chores.

17 – Finishing a book; Meredith nursing to sleep in my lap (apparently this is one of my favorite things).

    I love how you keep up with your daily appreciations! I just came across another blogger I had never read before and I was going back on her entries and saw this one post that made me think of you so I wanted to share! I don’t know if it’s something you would do, but I thought it was cute! =)

    Thanks so much for that link! It definitely has my head churning with ideas on what to do with my daily good things. A minibook like that might be fun!
