Tough Loss . . . But Thankful all the Same!
We lost an ugly Iron Bowl today to Auburn 22-15 and it was especially hard to see and hear their fans celebrating on our home field. Some chances we didn't take advantage of, some chances we lost with turnovers, and in the end I just don't think we had the "want to" to win. So it was a rough day, but . . .
Gary and I got to spend the day together, and that was very nice! (Even if this--and not a romantic out for dinner and a movie--counts for our "date night, it's a good thing!)
I got to see Mom and Dad, who are so great to keep the girls while we go to games.
And it is less than a week until Thanksgiving, which means Gary out of work for the week and the kids out of school after Tuesday.
So, all in all . . . even when we lose a game I hate to lose . . . life is good!
(And on that note, here are two things I'm adding on to the Thankful paper strips right now (to add to the others already in the basket for the week):
7. I'm thankful for my parents.
8. I'm thankful for cash in my pocket.)
Have a blessed Sunday!
(And, oh, I did get some good pictures from last night's high school football game and from Gameday today with Bama . . . at least, the pictures from BEFORE the game--when we were cheery and hopeful--are good . . .and I will try and upload some tomorrow.)
