Gratitude

So my last pots is gone, and I apologize if it's still in your readers. Despite having a well publicized blog, I'm actually a pretty private person, and not only that, but there is no room for self-pity here. Sitting here feeling sorry for myself is not going to make my situation any better. And I have so much to be thankful for...

My children are healthy and beautiful.

My husband loves me unconditionally, and is a truly fantastic father.

We have enough to eat.

My body is strong and sturdy and covered in the beautiful marks of motherhood.

I am capable of doing anything in the world, with the help of Google and a little determination.

I've discovered who I am spiritually and am no longer on a searching path.

We have a reliable vehicle that's almost paid for.

We have enough money to pay the bills.

My children are quick learners and do well in school.

I have four children with four vastly different interesting personalities.

We don't have any legal problems.

I'm not a drug addict or alcoholic.

I have lots of good ideas that are fun to think about, even if they're crazy and never come to fruition.

I like myself.

No matter what happens or where we end up, we'll always have each other.

Didn't read the other post, but good for you. That's a great list and a lovely reminder to appreciate what we have.

So instead of complaining that I am about to get up and go to work, I will be grateful that I have a job to go to :)

I didn't see your last post I don't think? but it must have been a doozie I'm guessing. Good on ya for reminding yourself that life doesn't *completely* suck (just small parts of it ;) Hang in there.
