Thankful

After being inspired by my future sister-in-law's recent blog entry, I've decided to take a few minutes to talk about some GOOD things that I have to be thankful for right now. Because life has given me quite a few tests of strength over the past couple weeks, it would definitely be easy to sit around and complain about everything that's going wrong. However, if I do that, I feel like my mentality will never change. So, here are a few things from today that I will focus on in an attempt to remember all the good things I have in my life! :)
  • The shower in my new apartment has great water pressure!
  • Today--11/16/10--was 51 degrees and sunny in Milwaukee!
  • I have a dishwasher.
  • I found a stellar grocery store less than 1 mile from my apt.
  • I found said grocery store WITHOUT the help of my Garmin.
  • The neighborhood I live in pretty much rocks.
  • I start my job in approximately t-minus 36 hours.
  • My newest niece or nephew is due in 3 weeks, 5 days! Eek!
  • I spent 2 hours on the phone tonight with 2 dear friends.
  • I'm alive. Yep, that's a good one. :)
Okay. That's enough for right now. Still a rough day, but this list of things serves as a reminder that I still have a lot to be thankful for, no matter how bad it seems sometimes. And as this list proves, sometimes it's the little things that make life seem so much better.

Amen, Laurie! I try to remind myself every day, so hopefully I can remind other people once in awhile too! :)
