This week, I'm thankful for Bill Meck (For those of you not in Lexington, he's our local weatherman. He lives for severe weather and there's no one I trust more than him...even when he's kind of freaking me out.). We had some severe storms go through yesterday evening, and when I couldn't understand the 'voice from the sky' as I walked in the front door, it was so reassuring to know I could just go downstairs, turn on Bill Meck, and know that I'd be informed. (Yes, there are other weathermen and women in town, both on WLEX and the other television stations, but I'd bet money that Bill Meck is everyone's favorite.)
I'm thankful, too, for Fr. Johnnie who has been out of town for the last couple weeks. This is his first full week back, and it's so nice to have him back in the office. The only counter to this is that the "problem parishioners" are all flooding in this week to see him. The awesome thing, though, (and what makes me so thankful for him) is that Fr. Johnnie has an awesome sense of humor and lightens the mood when I'm complaining!
Finally, I'm thankful for our group of friends, who are coming over Saturday evening for game night. We haven't hosted in a while, and our gatherings haven't really involved games in a while, so I'm really excited to just have everyone over and pull out some board games.
What are you thankful for this week?
