Thankful Thursday: 3/28/13

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

Not sure what to be thankful for this week?  Marc and Angel offer 6 reasons to be grateful - reasons that are often overlooked.

Today I'm thankful for the calmness at work this week.  It is spring break at my University, so the undergraduates are nowhere to be seen and my boss has been working from home this week.  There is hardly any walk-in traffic or phone calls, which makes for an eerily quiet office.  It's just Izzy and me. 

On Monday it was a shock; I felt like there was probably something I should be doing that I was overlooking.  Tuesday also felt very boring and monotonous with the few interruptions.  Yesterday I started doing some major "spring cleaning" in our back storage room: destroying old files, getting rid of things we never use, and moving some items to our more permanent storage area.  I also called for five boxes of shredding to be picked up.  By today, I was totally in the spring break groove, absolutely loving the silence and peace.  That gives me one more day to appreciate the atmosphere this week, before Monday becomes the normal crazy hectic again.

"There is always, always, always something to be thankful for."
