I hate bridges, but can still be thankful!

I have lived in the Savannah are for over 5 years now. I have been many places in those 5 years and frequent South Carolina/Hilton Head quiet a bit but there are still many places I have not been. Beaufort, SC, for example is one of those places....until today. The salon where I used to get my hair cut closed down and my girl moved to a salon in Beaufort, SC. Although it is a longer drive, my girl is so good, that I decided the drive was worth it. So today, for the first time, I drove over to Beaufort, SC.
First of all let me say, Beaufort is one of the most beautiful cities I have seen over here on the East Coast. It is right on the water and I just loved it. The only problem with Beaufort is the bridge I have to cross to get over to it. I never thought about where Beaufort was or how I would get there, I just punched it in the GPS and drove. It wasn't until I came to the long bridge that I realized I had to cross it if I wanted to go get my hair cut!
I think the speed limit is 55 along there so going about 80 and taking a few deep breathes, I made it safely across. Phew! I really hate bridges like that...bridges where I can't see the other side and cross large expanses of water!! I don't like those BUT...

1) I am thankful that my fears don't control and/or keep me from doing the things I want to do.
2) I am thankful for my hair girl, SARA IS AWESOME!!
3) I was thankful today that there was a Chik-Fil-A nearby the new salon for a quick lunch stop!
4) I am thankful for a husband who lets me vent and keeps me level headed
5) I am thankful that tomorrow is already Wednesday!! Woohoo!!

I AM BLESSED!!
