I've always considered myself a fairly optimistic person. You know, glass half full and all that jazz. But occasionally, even I get the feeling that things are just not going my way. Medical bills piling up, a sink full of dirty dishes, mountains of laundry, and toys that never seem to make it back to the the toy box. My days are often so busy that I can't remember the last time I actually sat done and did nothing. It's at times like this, that I start looking for the positive in every thing I do. The things that I am thankful for.
Huge medical bills remind me that I am a cancer SURVIVOR! Without them, I wouldn't be able to say that. Dirty dishes in the sink mean that we have food in our bellies. Mountains of laundry show me that we are blessed to have clothes on our backs, and toys all over the floor, well that is my favorite. Those toys are a reminder of how lucky I am to have a house full of STRONG and HEALTHY kids! I am quite blessed!
So, today I am thankful for a lot of things! Here are just a few:
- The fall leaves that blanket my front yard.
- My girls' pumpkin creations.
- My sweet Stella and her free spirited way of always wanting to wear her shoes on the wrong feet.
So tell me, what are you thankful for today?
