Life Is Good

For all the complaining that I do (and that I claim to be "Way Too Busy") I really do have a Good Life. My brain is a little fried to make much grammatical sense, so a list will have to do.
  1. I have a comfortable and reliable vehicle. After driving the Toyota yesterday (first time in probably 2 months) I realized how great it is to have a truck with comfy seats, solid brakes, and air conditioning. (Dear God, Thank You so much for giving us air conditioning! Amen.)
  2. I have a (*quality*) college education. I have struggled, stumbled, and somehow managed to get within one semester of achieving my Master's Degree. Excuse me a moment while I say: Yay ME! This is a great personal achievement and I know I am truly blessed to have the capacity (mentally and economically) to do this.
  3. I have fantastic family and friends. From my (mostly) fantastic husband, to my parents and siblings, to my in-laws, to my most-bestest-friend AJ, I have a support system to rival all others. And, I am grateful every day for each one of them.
  4. I feel compassion, empathy, and hope. I get "down in the dumps" sometimes, but I always get back up again. I try hard to see the glass as half full. I wholeheartedly accept that there is a glorious light at the end of the tunnel.
  5. And, I have faith that if I do right (by myself, my loved ones, and others) I will be rewarded (in every sense of the word). (Dear God, Thank You so much for making me me, for providing everything I need, and for giving me the faith to accept You.)

Really, these aren't in order (of importance, or otherwise), I just needed to put things into words the way that they came to me. I realize that I'm as thankful for the little things as I am for the big things, and that seems important. No lesson here, Just Me, needing to express.

Good for you. See the glass as half full. That's the only way to go. :)

There's always so much to be thankful for when we take the time to remember to do it.

Sometimes you just need to be thankful for what you have. It puts life into perspective.
