it's gonna be a long week

It's only Tuesday, halfway through work. I'm draggin' my tailfeathers already.

It's time for a gratitude shout-out to pick me up. These are the things I'm grateful for:

  • to have a job to go to
  • to have food on the table every night
  • to have a healthy family
  • to be healthy myself
  • to see the smiling faces of my grandbabies so frequently
  • to be able to play with paper and other assorted pretties and toys and call it a hobby so people don't look at me funny
  • to have a home to call my own
  • to have such great kids
  • to have a great husband who makes me laugh and who puts up with me
  • to have a cute Augie doggie who gives me kisses
  • to have cats who make me happy
  • to be able to blog and make my kids roll their eyes at me

It always helps me stop whining if I look for the good things in my life, and then I realize how truly fortunate I am.

I know what you mean, I look forward to Thursdays because I have Fridays off. Some weeks it seems to just draaaaaag on by....

I try to do what you do, look at the good instead of whining about the bad. Sometimes I need to slap myself upside the head to remember to do that!

Remember the old hymn, "Count Your Many Blessings"?

OOH, hang in there! The weekend will be wonderful :)

I think I need to do my own Gratitude list... Hopefully it works for me. This not having a job yet is starting to get frustrating!
