#ThankfulActs, Day 3: Super Thanks for a Super Person

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that my husband, John, is my best friend.  He really is a super person, and today happens to be his birthday.  My #ThankfulActs challenge today is to give a silly, yet sincere, "super" gift for a super person.


The concept can be as simple or complex as you wish.  I just went to the 99¢ Store and looked for products with "Super" on the label. I bought whatever seemed appropriate (Super Colon Cleanse did not make the cut!) I ended up with Super Glue, paper towels, mechanical pencil lead, pens, Post-its, batteries, adhesive hooks, and bug repellent. Though those are not the most traditional of birthday gifts, they are useful and fit the "Super" theme.  I also threw in a pair of Superman socks (from JCPenney).  I put everything in a bag and attached a note thanking John for being such a super guy.

You don't even need to do more than one item; you could give Super Glue to someone, with the label, "You've stuck with me through thick and thin.  Thanks for being a super friend!" Have fun with this challenge, and let me know how it goes!

(I've been out of town for the past few days, so please forgive my tardiness in responding to your comments.  I appreciate each of them, and will be incorporating some of your ideas into future challenges.  Thanks!)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.πŸ˜‰)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
