A new American Idol and one happy girl...

HE DID IT!!! HE WON!!!! Way to go Kris Allen you deserved to win and I was relieving my childhood days as I jumped up and down and screamed with joy when he was announced the winner. So proud of all my Arkansas friends who voted you all must be so proud of one of "your own" winning!! I was so glad when I saw his wife get up there and hug him - she must be so proud. I can't imagine if that was my husband I would be dying to get up there and hug him and kiss him with pride. I am not only a happy girl cause he won - how sad and pathetic would that be - its Thursday that means tomorrow I get to see my husband... oh how I can't wait!! I am thinking we will probably go to the cottage again as they are calling for fabulous weather and what better place to be then escape the busy city life and head to the quiet relaxing cottage maybe even get a little golf game in. I love living in the city don't get me wrong but I also love escaping to the cottage on the weekends to just relax. I have been really journaling alot - if you know me you know I love to journal my thoughts and I find it therapeutic to look back on what I've written years ago and see what God has taught me and brought me through . I am just compelled today to be thankful. There really is so much I could sit her and complain about - I don't even need to give examples because giving into listing all I have to be sad about, to complain about takes the Joy the Lord has given me away. I am choosing this day to be thankful. Thankful for so much that I really do take for granted. Simple pleasures like the weather, health, a place to live and sleep, food to eat, vehicle to drive, gas to make my vehicle run, a husband, a husband who loves God and loves me despite all my flaws, my families (both mine and my husbands) and the list really could go on... how about that its almost summer that means sundresses and sandals my favorite time of year. There really is so much to be thankful for but I so often especially lately have been letting my complaining and the things I don't have cover and hid all I do have and all the things I should be thankful for. So what are you thankful for TODAY!?! Honestly if you think about it, it just may be the "medicine" you need to cheer you up today!!

I beat I know what Kris Allen is thankful for today!! :)


  1. I am so HAPPY that Kris Allen won too! I felt the same way last night when they announced the winner! My fiance was laughing at me and probably thought I had lost my mind (lol). It was very sweet when his wife got up on stage with him, like you said I would be going crazy if that was my hubby! Have a great weekend with your husband!

  2. You are too funny! I am so glad your hubby is coming home! I know you will be glad to see him. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I watched American Idol with Derek and my parents last night, and we all let out a cheer when Kris won! I really wanted him to win!
    Thanks for the reminder to be thankful - it's so easy to tell the Lord about all the things we want, it can easy to forget to thank Him too!
