I was totally planning to watch The Oscars last night and completely missed them! I have tried to watch every year, but this year I was so tired that I slept right them. Besides checking out all of the fabulous outfits, I love to listen to the speeches.
It has me thinking about who I would thank in an acceptance speech if I were ever in a position to give one, which would only be in my dreams
So I think I would have to thank God first because well He is the one who deserves all my thanks and it seems to be proper award winning speech etiquette to do so.
But after thanking the big guy, I would have to take quite a bit of time to thank the other big guy in my life. My husband has been my rock for all of my adult life which just goes to show I need to once again thank God for bringing us together. He puts up with me when he has to, and he has no trouble putting me in my place either which is a rare quality since I can be a bit difficult at times. I know what you are thinking, but it is true
I was sent this cute Joy of Thank You Red Carpet Kit from Merci Chocolates that I waited to use. But since I slept through the Oscars, I only had a chance to try some chocolate before I did and they were divine! Truth is the chocolates have been calling my name since they arrive this past Valentine’s Day. We had planned to pop some popcorn and make some special drinks to sit and watch together, but that didn’t happen either.
This is where I think about an acceptance speech once again because I would thank God, my husband, and my family for giving me grace when I don’t follow through on my own plans.
