It has been some time since I’ve written anything and I am in the kind of mood where I need to count some of my many blessings. It could be the weather or perhaps something else that has me in a state of melancholy lately. Anyway, here we go…
1.) God-I know that not everyone believes but I do and there are some days that I know I would not have made it through without prayer, faith and God.
2.) Social Media-I am so thankful to be able to keep up with my friends and family via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. Life happens and it is nice to be able to stay on top of things like birthdays, children, parties and all the other ins and outs of life. Especially since we live so far away from everyone.
3.) Tomi-There are some days when I am not sure that I would be able to maintain my sanity if I didn’t have her in my life. Plus, I think it is important to have someone in your life who makes you laugh to the point of urination.
4.) Singing-The ability to sing is what keeps me from catching a case some days. Singing is a great release for me and whether I am feeling great or down in the dumps, singing helps get me through.
5.) Zoloft (no filter) – I will just say that there are a lot of people who I have to deal with in my day-to-day that should be thankful that I am medicated.
6.) Employment-I know a lot of people who are out there right now looking for work and I am thankful that I have a job. There are days when my co-workers get on my nerves but I am thankful to have them.
7.) Moving-Although it was a LOT of work, we are moved into a bigger, better place and we are happy there.
8.) Pinterest- Anyone who has ever been on the website knows why I am thankful for Pinterest and anyone who has never been on it, don’t do it. You will be hooked.
9.) Comfort food (in moderation) – There is nothing better when the weather starts to turn cool. I have pulled out all kinds of recipes for hearty soups and stews and casseroles; all the stuff to make you feel warm deep down in your soul (They’ve got some great recipes on Pinterest).
10.) Being literate-I have read a lot of really great books lately and I am thankful for the ability to do that.
