Three Things Thursday

Tonight while I was in the shower I found myself surprised to be thinking about the highlights of my day. I’ve been really tired this week (anyone else having bad dreams?) and feeling like I’m fighting two different kinds of flares at the same time, but there were some really great things about today, too.

So today I’m introducing my very first theme post that I hope to make a regular addition to My Twisty Tale: Three Things Thursday! A quick google search tells me that I’m not the only one who enjoys the alliterative Thursday theme, but I’m certainly hoping to make my own mark on it. I know that a blog with an underlying theme of chronic illness can get a little heavy, so every Thursday I’ll tell you three things that were positive about my day even if it was the worst day ever (cue Tina Fey eyeroll).

So here we go:

1. This beauty, given to me by a coworker. It was so unexpected–it really was a very pleasant and thoughtful surprise!

2. This guy, who–despite the insistence of pretty much every cat expert out there that it can’t be true–truly loves belly rubs.

3. I came home to a clean kitchen and bathroom courtesy of THE BEST HUSBAND EVER. (But don’t tell him I told you!)

Bonus thing: today is my Grandma’s birthday. She may be older today, but she never ages a bit– that lady has more energy than I do most days! I don’t get to see her very often, but she is never far from my thoughts and I love her to pieces. I doubt she will read this, but just in case: Happy Birthday, Granny!

What are your three things today?
